Changan Uni-K PHEV boasts 1,100 km of range
Changan has unveiled a part-electric modification of its Uni-K crossover SUV, which looks nearly identical to its ICE counterpart on the outside except for dual tailpipes and a tiny badge reading ‘IDD’ (the name of the powertrain).
Like the ICE car featured in the video, the plug-in hybrid one uses a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine rated at 170 PS (168 hp / 125 kW) and 260 Nm (192 lb-ft) of torque. The electric motor contributes another 116 PS (114 hp / 85 kW) and 330 Nm (243 lb-ft) of torque. The all-electric range amounts to 130 kilometers (80 miles) according to the outdated NEDC standard, but have a full tank, and you will be able to cover 1,100 kilometers (683 miles) before running dry.
Acceleration parameters, trim levels, launch date and pricing remain to be announced. The standard Changan Uni‑K has been on sale since March, and costs between 154,000 and 185,000 Chinese Yuan.
