Luxgen just unveiled the Neora Concept at the Shanghai Motor Show, which is a new concept model for an all-electric sedan from Taiwan. The prototype is developed on the same propulsion system as the proposed MPV Luxgen7 + EV.
The Luxgen Neora Concept is a plug-in four-door sedan, which is powered by an 180kW (240 hp)-electric motor that delivers power to the front wheels. The Luxgen Neora weighs in at about 3,527 pounds, and it is capable of acceleration from 0-62 mph in just 6.5 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph. The Luxgen Neora uses a 48 kWh lithium-ion battery pack to power the front-mounted electric motor, and it is good for about 248 miles on a single charge. What is best about the Luxgen’s lithium-ion battery pack is that it can be recharged back to 80 percent capacity in just one hour. Those are exemplary numbers on the charge time and driving range for this lithium-ion battery pack, however, it will come as a cost. You will see prices of the Luxgen Neora probably in the same range as the Telsa Model S, which starts at around $57,000.
“The Neora perfectly represents Luxgen’s brand spirit of Think Ahead, and the new form of appearance will be the design cues for Luxgen’s upcoming models in the future,” said the company’s Vice President, James Shyr. “Its streamline flow, and the innovation of lightweight, as well as fuel economy, represent the novelty of Luxgen’s energy saving future technologies,” he added.
Currently, there are two pure-electric models in the works, the Luxgen7 SUV and the Luxgen7 MPV. And hopefully, we will get to see it here in the States.
