We’ve heard of a Luxgen concept sedan about a year ago, and now, the company is revealing its first sedan for the Taiwanese market and later for the world. The all-new Luxgen5 sedan is the production version of the Neora EV concept that was debuted at the 2011 Shanghai Auto Show in China.
The new Luxgen5 sedan is not small. The four-door sedan has been designed to be a global sedan. From the styling to the inner chassis designs, the Luxgen5 sedan is designed to meet regulations around the world.
Power for the Luxgen5 sedan will be available with a choice of two four-cylinder gasoline engines: a 1.8-liter VVT Turbo producing 150 horsepower and 169 lb-ft of torque, while a 2.0-liter VVT Turbo produces 170 horsepower and 189 lb-ft of torque. The engines are mated to a 5-speed automatic and a 6-speed automatic transmission, respectively. As for performance figures, the 2.0-liter engine can accelerate from 0-62 mph in 8.5 seconds and with a top speed of 131 mph.
The Luxgen5 sedan comes with a host of safety equipment to meet global regulations around the world, which includes ABS, EBD electronic brake-force distribution, a BAS brake assist system, an ESC electronic stability control system and a TCS traction control system. Other luxury amenities include a ‘jet fighter-style’ HUD display and the LUXGEN THINK+ Touch infotainment system that has smartphone integration capability.
The Luxen plans to compete the Luxgen5 sedan in the medium-to-large sedan market. The new sedan will make its first world premiere at the 2012 Taipei Auto Show next April. We’ll have more details coming up, so stay tuned.
