This was reported by the press service of the brand.
The new i-Joy, we recall, is a simplified Russian analogue of the Dongfeng Fengon E3 SUV that debuted in 2019. In terms of dimensions (4385 x 1850 x 1650 mm; wheelbase – 2655 mm; ground clearance – 180 mm) this is an analogue of Chery Tiggo 4 and Skoda Karoq. The trunk volume is impressive for the “Chinese” 535 liters, and with the rear sofa folded, it grows to 1225 liters.
It has the same 53 kWh lithium-nickel-manganese-cobalt oxide traction battery as the i-Pro sedan, but due to the greater curb weight (i-Joy weighs 1765 kg), the range is 407 km in the NEDC cycle (in real conditions, you can count on 300-350 km). The machine is equipped with combined Type 2/CCS2 charging: AC charger power is 7 kW, DC charger is 45 kW.
The OTTS indicated that the SUV would be equipped with a 130-kilowatt electric motor on the front axle, but now the site indicates that the engine output is 120 kW (163 hp) and 195 Nm. Like the i-Pro (110kW/150bhp, 210Nm), the i-Joy lost 10kW (14bhp) and lost 30Nm of torque. This did not affect acceleration to 100 km / h: the same 8.9 s was declared. But the maximum speed fell from 160 to 155 km / h. But the power reserve is as much as two kilometers more than previously announced.
The Evolute i-Joy is offered in a single package, which includes six airbags, two 10.25-inch screens (a multimedia system touchscreen and a digital “tidy”), a panoramic roof, cruise control, light and rain sensors, front and rear parking sensors and video recorder. The front seats are electrically adjustable and ventilated, but the steering wheel is not adjustable for reach – only for height. Salon i-Joy upholstered in black leatherette. The only option is an autonomous interior heater.
The price for i-Joy was announced in advance: 3,490,000 rubles, excluding state subsidies. In the case of Russian-assembled electric vehicles, it is 35% (but not more than 925 thousand rubles), so when buying on credit, such an Evolute will cost 2,565,000 rubles.
