Electric startup creates a buzz with first model revealed



Jinkang Seres, a subsidiary of Sokon Group, unveiled its first model last week in Southwest China's Chongqing. The electric startup said that it will launch more than 25 models including sedans, MPVs and SUVs by 2025. The first model, a mid-sized SUV called the SF5, is built on an independently developed electric platform and has a range of more than 500 kilometers on one charge, according to the startup established three years ago in Silicon Valley in the United States.

Besides the electric version, Jinkang Seres also presented a range-extender version. In electric mode, the version can run up to 150 km. It said this meets the daily demand of most people. The models will be produced at the startup's intelligent plant in Chongqing. It is one of the few electric startups that have won the nod from the National Development and Reform Commission to build a plant. The plant, with an investment of 4 billion ($599 million), has the state-of-the-art facilities, including more than 1,000 robots.
