From 2011 till date, JAC pure-electric family has owned six generation vehicles. This time, IEV6S SUV comes with the Samsung ternary lithium battery, so it can travel as far as 300 kilometres at 60km/h steady-state driving.
For this car, JAC has not compromised interior safety. For example, in order to test the performance of battery under the condition of low temperature, JAC chose the wee hours of winter to test the vehicle.
In order to make the whole battery system safer, JAC adopts ‘small module’ style. Informally, those small battery modules work independently. If one of them turns up any problems, it will not affect others.
As a pure-electric vehicle, IEV6S has no engine like the traditional vehicle. Its ‘heart’ is an electricity-driven system. And this key part is from industry champion – JUYI Automation.
