The Cheetah Yooz compact electric car weighs only 480 kg and is equipped with a small 20-horsepower motor. Its doors rise up, and the passenger sits behind the driver, like on a motorcycle.
Photos of the first electric car from Iran have been published. Miniature Cheetah Yooz is planned to be put into production this year. This is reported by the Khodro Bank website.
The developers of Cheetah Yooz in Iran are called Paraks startup. However, in fact, the electric car is a clone of the Chinese Rayttle E28, which, in turn, copies the French urban electric car Renault Twizy. Representatives of Paraks claim that there are 800 original parts in the design of the car, and localization is 85%.
Resemblance to Twizy is visible to the naked eye. Cheetah Yooz is the same miniature capsule on wheels 2.3 m long and weighing 480 kg. As in the Renault, the doors lift up in Lamborghini style.
In the cabin, the passenger sits behind the driver, like in a motorcycle. Instrument readings are displayed on a small monochrome display, and the number of switches inside is kept to a minimum.
The Iranian car is equipped with a 20-horsepower electric motor and a Samsung battery with a capacity of 7.7 kWh. It develops 80 km/h and can travel up to 100 km without recharging.
At first they plan to collect a trial batch of 30 Cheetah Yooz. Then production volumes are going to be gradually increased to 150 cars per month.
