Z100, the once cheapest car in China is no longer available for sale today, as Zotye has already replaced it with an all-electric version called the Z100 EV in October 2014. Now after 3 years, Zotye has presented the facelift for the Z100 EV called as the Z100 Plus at the ongoing Chengdu Auto Show with an updated front and rear-end and an all-new interior.
The Z100 Plus carries a 13.5 kW motor with 145nm torque and a maximum range of up to 200km in a complete charge. The lithium ion battery takes 6-8 hours for a complete charge, however it requires only 1 hour to reach 80% charge in fast charging mode. The Z100 Plus can reach a maximum speed of up to 90 km/h.
The car also comes equipped with a 7-inch information display (meter cluster) and 10-inch infotainment screen with Android Auto, Airbags, electric parking brakes, multi-function steering wheel, USB/ Bluetooth connectivity/ GPS and “Follow-me-home” Headlights.
The electric Z100 plus will be officially launched in China soon; however the conventional gasoline variant will continue to be sold in export markets.
