JAC Refine A60
The JAC Refine A60 is a mid-size sedan measuring 4,995 mm in length, 1,865 mm in width and 1,503 mm in height, and having a wheelbase of 2,915 mm. Formerly known as the JAC Refine A6, the sedan will go on sale in H2 2016 and be available with a 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine producing 174 hp and 251 Nm of torque and a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine producing 190 hp and 280 Nm of torque.
The JAC iEV6e is a pure electric mini car based on the the JAC Yue Yue hatchback. Its motor produces 61 hp and 175 Nm of torque. Reports say that the iEV6e has a range of 152 km and a top speed of 102 km/h.
The JAC iEV6 is a new variant of the JAC iEV5 with different styling and a better interior. The same electric motor from the iEV5, generating 68 hp and 215 Nm of torque, powers the iEV6. However, the iEV6 has a 300 km-driving range which is 50 km longer than the iEV5’s. The performance has been compromised for the longer driving range, as the iEV6 can go up to only 102 km/h whereas the iEV5 can go up to 120 km/h.
The JAC iEV6S is a pure electric crossover based on the JAC Refine S2 crossover. Its motor produces 114 hp and 250 Nm of torque and allows it to reach a top speed of 130 km/h. Full charging via a 220-volt socket takes 11 hours, but using fast charging, 80% battery can be charged in just one hour. The iEV6S has a driving range of 253 km in unrestricted driving or 300 km in restricted driving (speed not exceeding 60 km/h).
