CNJ's original plan was to introduce the company’s electric version of the Rui Shuai mini truck – the new FE electric mini truck.
Sichuan Nanjun Auto Group (CNJ) showcased its Rui Shuai diesel mini truck at the recently concluded CAPAS 2019. The company was participating in the exhibition along with Sichuan Hyundai Motor Co, Ltd.
Sales & Marketing Planning Division Chief of Sales Planning Division Li Bo revealed that the original plan was to introduce the company’s electric version of the Rui Shuai mini truck – the new FE electric mini truck, which was officially launched in April.
“The exterior of the new FE electric mini truck is quite similar to the diesel version that we display here. It is powered by 4 ternary lithium ion batteries with a capacity of 39 million kilowatt hours. Featuring vehicle dimensions of 5425mm (length), 1700mm (width) and 2800mm (height), and a wheelbase of 3200mm, the FE electronic mini truck has all the benefits of a truck in a compact size. It is affordable, easy to manoeuvre in crowded city traffic, especially along narrow roads, and is particularly ideal for intra-city logistics.”
It has a 9-inch multi-info dashboard display for Bluetooth, GPS, radio, air-conditioning and reverse camera functions. In addition, it is equipped with a human-machine voice interactive system that allows the driver to vocally activate multi-media functions in the mini truck.
CNJ started venturing into the electric vehicle segment last year. At present, he said, the FE electric mini truck sales volume was small and could not even reached 100 units.
As one of the largest automobile manufacturers in China, CNJ has more than 30 years of experience in truck manufacturing. The company is also the manufacturer for Hyundai commercial vehicles in China. Sichuan Hyundai Motor is a 50-50 joint venture between Hyundai Motor Company and CNJ.
“全新FE电动微型卡车与柴油版的很相似。它搭载4个三元锂电池，电池容量39千瓦时。外观尺寸5425mm（长）X 1700mm(宽)X 2800mm（高），轴距3200mm。拥有灵巧的车身的FE电动微型卡车具备了一辆卡车的所有优点。它价值实惠，在交通拥挤的城市中，特别是窄小的街道能够来去自如，容易操纵的它特别适合城际物流。”
