The first details of the revived Moskvich have become known. As predicted earlier, under this brand, the production of the Chinese model will be launched. According to the website “Chinese cars”, we are talking about an electric car JAC Sehol E10X.
It was JAC that was called the main contender for the production of cars at the Moscow Automobile Plant after Renault sold it to the state for 1 ruble. As you know, Chinese automakers did not support sanctions against the Russian Federation, so cooperation is possible only with them.
In addition, it turned out that a test copy of Sehol had already been brought to KamAZ in Naberezhnye Chelny E10X. Namely, KamAZ acts as a partner of the Moscow authorities in the project of the revival of Moskvich. They promise to start production before the end of the year.
The Sehol E10X electric car was created by JAC with the participation of Volkswagen specialists. The compact A-class hatchback has been produced since 2021 and in China it costs 46,900 – 76,400 yuan ($7,000 – 11,400).
Characteristics of the Moskvich electric car
- Length – 3650 mm
- Width – 1670 mm
- Height – 1495 mm
- Wheelbase – 2390 mm
Sehol E10X is equipped with 41 and 61 hp motors. with. In both cases, the maximum speed is limited to only 102 km/h. The model is positioned as an urban model, and therefore it is not very adapted to high-speed driving on the highway.
The Chinese electric car is available with three battery options:
- 15 kWh capacity – reserve 150 km range
- 20 kWh capacity – 200 km range
- 30 kWh – 300 km range
It should be noted that the range of the Sehol E10X is calculated according to the outdated and inaccurate NEDC cycle, that is, in real conditions it is significantly less.
The equipment of the new “Moskvich”
A miniature Chinese electric car is offered in versions for 4 and 5 seats. The interior is trimmed with fabric or leatherette. The basic equipment of the Sehol E10X is quite modest – air conditioning, ABS, power windows and one airbag. The top version has two pillows, and also has ESP, keyless entry, a touch screen, cruise control and wireless charging for a smartphone.
It is noteworthy that this is not the first time that another car has been produced under the Moskvich brand stamps. The very first Moskvich-401 was an exact copy of the Opel Kadett: for this, all the equipment of the Opel plant was taken to the USSR from Germany in 1945.
