SF Motors reveals two new electric SUV models --- SF5, SF7
In a move which underscores a big push by a Chinese automaker into the US market, SF Motors revealed two new electric SUV models -- the SF5 and the SF7 -- at its headquarters in Santa Clara on Wednesday.
SF Motors is a subsidiary Sokon Industry Group, and is mainly known for the production of mini-buses, vans and utility trucks.
The new SF5 electric concept car introduced by SF Motors in the US is a compact SUV, while the SF7 is a significantly bigger Crossover SUV. Both the new electric SUVs boast the inclusion of some components which allow partially autonomous driving. Both the vehicles will be manufactured by SF Motors in China and in the US.
About the new SF5 and SF7 electric models, SF Motors CEO John Zhang said during an interview with Forbes that the external design of both the SUVs was made in California, whereas their interiors were collaboratively designed by the automakers and its partners in Germany.
Revealing that the range for both SF5 and SF7 will be up to 300 miles on a single charge, Zhang said that the performance of the vehicles will be 735 kW. Further adding that both the electric SUVs will be able to accelerate from zero to 100 km in less than three seconds, Zhang said that the key objective of SF Motors in presenting the two electric models is to create “next-generation” electric vehicles.
