Default Haima Automobile unveils Bird Electric EV1

Quote:
Chinese automaker Haima Automobile has unveiled its first electric car for India, Bird Electric EV1, and is expected to be priced in the range of Rs 10 lakh on road. The Bird Electric EV1 is being promoted as a value proposition in B-segment.

Haima will be producing the EV1 in partnership with Bird Electric in a plant at Manesar, Haryana most likely. The EV1 will be offered in two variants one with a range of 200 km per charge and another with a 300 km range. The car is expected to roll out in 12 to 15 months time.

Bird Electric EV1 comes fitted with a 20.42 kWh or a 28.5 kWh unit according to the variant and produces a power of 30 kW and a torque of 95 Nm or 150 Nm, again according to the battery capacity. The EV1 can achieve a top speed of 120 km/h and the battery can be charged to its full capacity in 9 to 11 hours. The company is claiming a running cost of Rs 60 per 100 km and the car will have the largest boot size in its segment and comes with two airbags. The car measures 3,680 mm in length, 1,570 mm in width and 1,530 in height with a wheelbase of 2,340 mm.
With the world moving towards clean mobility with least environment impact, we are satisfied that with launch of Bird Electric EV1 today, we have entered the fastest growing segment of the Indian automobile. With the collaboration with Bird Electric, Bird Electric EV1 will reinvent the game in terms of technology and economy, targeted at a wide set of customers across segments. With its attractive pricing, Bird Electric EV1 is the perfect fit for Indian customers, who place a premium on value proposition in a car purchase decision.

Yes. Chinese EVs are coming and they will come hard. I just hope, all the EVs share similar charging socket standard so that it benefits all vehicles.

That's one ugly car with small legs. Big plastic pad on the C pillar adds to the ugliness, the interior looks old. At 10 lakhs it's DOA(dead on Arrival).

When people realise its fuel cost per KM is only about 10% to 20% of an ICE car, I don't think people will care too much about the looks. Not to mention the tax sops the government is giving, and the minimal service costs associated with electric cars.

I'm glad the Chinese EV car makers are here, EVs will catch on a lot quicker than people imagine. People will charge their cars at home overnight, and the range fear will also disappear soon as many Reva owners on Team-BHP can attest to.

Remember our nation's number one question while buying a car is "Kitna deti hai".
