CHJ Automotive have not released official images yet of the car, but showed CNBC some of the initial designs of the ultra-compact vehicle. The car is 2.5 meters long and 1 meter wide. It runs on two batteries which are swappable, meaning that the car won’t need to stop for too long at a charging station to re-juice. Google’s in-car operating system called Android Auto is equipped in the vehicle
It will be priced at between 7,000 euros ($7,824) and 8,000 euros.
While it may seem like a small vehicle, Shen explained the target market the company is after in China.
“In China, there are 340 million people (who) daily commute with e-scooters, but there is a strong demand for them to upgrade to something,” Shen told CNBC in a TV interview on Friday.
“But we cannot imagine all of them driving cars, so we want to give them something else, which is an ultra-compact car.”
