On April 13, 2020, Changan New Energy’s all-new pure electric mini car Benni E-Star has been officially launched in the Chinese market. After the subsidy, the price range is 69,800 to 74,800 yuan. It launched two models, both equipped with a motor with a maximum power of 55kW and a peak torque of 170N · m, and a battery pack with capacity of 32.2kWh, NEDC cruising range of 301km .
Benni E-Star is a replacement model of Benni EV. The appearance and interior of the new car adopt a more youthful and technological design language. Compared with Benni EV, Benni E-Star is undoubtedly more in line with younger human aesthetics. In addition, in the parameters of power and range, Benni E-Star has the same parameters as the 2019 Benni EV360, which is in line with the mainstream level of miniature pure electric vehicles.
The length, width, and height of Benni E-Star are 3770/1650 / 1570mm, and the wheelbase is 2410mm. Among them, the length of the car body is slightly superior to competing products of the same level. The side and rear styling of the Benni E-Star is basically the same as that of the Benni EV. The visual effect is far less radical than that of the front styling, so it feels a little uncoordinated in design, but this brings the benefit of being easily accepted by the public.
Inside the car is the design highlights of Benni E-Star. For a mini car, the dual 10.25-inch continuous screen design clearly meets or exceeds psychological expectations, which also makes its interior design at the same level. Stand out from the models. In addition, echoing the color matching of the front face, the interior of the new car is also embellished with multiple fluorescent green color matching strips, which is dazzling.
From the perspective of power parameters, the Benni E-Star uses the same power system as the 2019 Benni EV360. It is equipped with a permanent magnet synchronous motor with a maximum power of 55kW and a maximum torque of 170N · m. The transmission system uses the most common single-speed gearbox on pure electric vehicles, which can also be called a fixed-gear ratio gearbox. The power battery assembled in the new car is a ternary lithium battery with a capacity of 32.2kWh. Under NEDC conditions, it can provide a vehicle with a range of 301km.
