2015 ROEWE 550 PLUG-IN gets listed with multiple privileges
Recently, the 2015 ROEWE 550 PLUG-IN from SAIC formally got listed. The new model has obvious improvements in terms of its core power technology, intelligent configuration and quietness; its pure electric driving mileage has been improved to 60 kilometers (the comprehensive driving mileage has been improved to 600km) and its oil consumption per hundred km is now only 1.6L. The car has been installed with the updated inkaNet 5.0 intelligent network driving system, bringing more efficient and intelligent multi-net and interconnected 4G drive cloud life to consumers. Focusing on upgrading core technologies, the 2015 ROEWE 550 PLUG-IN’s being listed created a new high of SAIC’s ‘net green’ products, which marked that the R&D strength of Chinese car enterprises represented by SAIC has reached globally leading levels in the core new-energy technology field.
The company has issued two models with the price for the luxury model being 248,800 RMB and for the flagship model 259,800 RMB. If consumers purchase the 2015 ROEWE 550 PLUG-IN, they can enjoy multiple new-energy subsidies from both the government and SAIC. The car is also free from purchase tax. Hence the actual price is very cheap; consumers in Shanghai can enjoy a Shanghai license at no cost. Since the 2015 ROEWE 550 PLUG-IN got listed, the new energy capacity of SAIC has been greatly improved, which means that the waiting time for consumers to receive their car will be greatly shortened.
‘NetGreen’ core technology nets breakthrough
At the Shanghai International Auto Show in 2015, SAIC issued its ‘net strategy’ and took the lead to promise that oil consumption will be reduced to 5L/Kmh on average by 2020, which is why ‘Net Green’ focuses on new energy technology. In 2015, the ROEWE 550 PLUG-IN got listed, which was the first time for SAIC’s ‘Net Green’ core technological fruits to appear in public. Under the guidance of ‘Net Green’ technology, the 2015 ROEWE 550 PLUG-IN upgraded and optimized its EDU intelligent electricity-driven unit; its operation capacity was greatly improved, with the highest driving mileage of 600km and the comprehensive driving mileage under the pure electric mode of 60km. It is installed with the first Green-motion high-efficiency three-core hybrid engine unit in the country, which not only boasts super-low oil consumption of 1.6L/kmh, but also provides peak power of 147KW and peak torque output of 587n/m, reaching perfect balance between super-low oil consumption and super-high power. This model also provides three different driving modes: E-economic mode, N-common mode and M-mountain mode, thus bringing the best driving performance. While enabling consumers to experience the feeling of smooth driving and linear acceleration, it can also save oil and protect the environment.
Inka Net 5.0 opens intelligent era of new-energy automobile
In terms of intelligence, the 2015 ROEWE 550 PLUG-IN is installed with the inkaNet 5.0 intelligent network driving system reputed as the ‘most powerful brain’. It is smooth in manipulation, complete in function and rapid in response, comprehensively breaking through consumers’ imagination of convenience brought by technologies. A multi-point touchable 3-D live-action GPS guided system supports a 360 degree display of street scenery, in which we can check the actual street scenery and real-time road conditions; it has a two-dimensional and three-dimensional map display and navigation function. It can automatically avoid traffic jams according to navigation routes, realizing dynamic navigation and inertia navigation. It can provide accurate navigation in viaducts and tunnels. It also has a surrounding search of the destination, providing consumers with multi-net and interconnected 4G driving cloud life. In addition, the whole-process manipulation of inkaNet 5.0 is finished through voice dialogue, emancipating the hands of drivers and making driving safer. Functions such as cellphone interconnection, voice assistant, intelligent radio and bluetooth further improve users’ driver experience.
Battery safety wins strict international certification
In terms of battery safety, which attracts much attention from consumers, the 2015 ROEWE 550 PLUG-IN guarantees safe driving through multiple leading technologies. E-modular iron phosphate lithium batteries adopt the globally leading battery cell manufacturing technique so as to guarantee 184 battery cells have the same performance and are distributed equally.
Compared with the heat dissipation difficulty caused by the fact that general plug-in new energy automobiles put their battery cells in the trunk, the design of the 2015 ROEWE 550 PLUG-IN is more favorable and prolongs battery life. Sophisticated battery cell materials also guarantee the safety and reliability of batteries under extreme conditions. Meanwhile, it also leaves a super-large capacity of around 400L for the trunk. E-modular iron phosphate lithium batteries also passed large battery safety certification of American UL Company and IP67 certification, the highest rank for anti-dust and anti-water for civilian use. The batteries still perform in wet and complicated climates in the highlands. It can be charged for more than 2,000 times and enjoy super-long quality guarantee of 5 years or 100,000 km.
In terms of car safety, the 2015 ROEWE 550 PLUG-IN is equipped with an initiative safety system such as ABS, EBD, CBC and ALL-seasons whole-day hybrid safety guarantee strategy. It is superior to the same-class models in terms of entire car safety performance. Ultra-high UHSD car body not only endows the 2015 ROEWE 550 PLUG-IN with the car intensity parallel to that of luxury cars, but also allows it to better cope with bad road conditions, reduce the engine’s vibration and reduce noise. Meanwhile, the 2015 ROEWE 550 PLUG-IN also adopts the independent suspended design that is less common in new-energy cars. It also performs better in terms of ground adhesion for the wheels and driving stability, thus providing a comfortable driving experience.
The 2015 ROEWE 550 PLUG-IN is also equipped with a remote real-time supervision system. The backstage work team of SAIC can supervise and provide an alarm for when the batteries are low, abnormal vehicle number and system alarming in time so as to comprehensively guarantee safe driving.
Multiple subsidy and super-low car cost
The upgrade of the 2015 ROEWE 550 PLUG-IN’s technologies and application of intelligent technologies has finally turned to the benefit of consumers. Its oil consumption per hundred km is reduced to 1.6L, marking further reduction in running costs. Take Shanghai as an example. The usage cost per hundred km of the 2015 ROEWE 550 PLUG-IN is reduced to 18 RMB; the outlay is not more than 1/3 of the traditional fuel expenses. Supposing the daily round trip mileage of most consumers is less than 60km, the pure electricity-driven car can fully satisfy the needs. Its driving cost is lowered to several yuan. Hence it is the best choice for consumers to choose green and economic driving.
In terms of purchase cost, under the condition that the national subsidy reduces, SAIC will provide a subsidy. Hence the 2015 ROEWE 550 PLUG-IN can enjoy multiple subsidies nationally, from local government and SAIC. The terminal sales price is cheap. Consumers in Shanghai can enjoy a free Shanghai license, free purchase taxation, and free vehicle and vessel tax. Its purchase cost is parallel to a traditional powered car. The outlay saved is enough to buy an A0-class car. In addition, SAIC also provides exclusive after-sales service such as free installation of charging pile and application subsidy, ‘home repair’ car sending service and custom-made services of senior counselors, making green and efficient driving tangible.
