Changan BenBen E-Star National Edition Simplified For Price – DRIVE

The National Edition differs from the usual “and-old” by the old body design (like the older EV360 or the old petrol Benben). Length, width, height and base are equal to 3730, 1650, 1560 and 2410 mm, trunk – 147 liters. There are two color versions available.

In 2019, the Changan company discontinued the gasoline city car BenBen, and in 2020 radically updated its electric variant EV360, changing both the exterior and interior. Electric car called BenBen E-Star good in many ways, but the price (from 69,800 yuan, 817,745 rubles) for a car with a length of 3770 mm turned out to be unattractive. Now the company to the fashionable Benben was made by the deliberately cheaper fellow Benben E-Star National Edition, the price for which starts at an incredible 29,800 yuan (349,383 rubles). True, this offer will be limited.

The interior of the National Edition is taken from the pre-reform model. Therefore, there are no two 10.25-inch displays, a central armrest with a box, power mirrors, voice control, Wi-Fi, a rear view camera and an air conditioner.

The electric car with the National Edition prefix is ​​sold in two trim levels. The initial Heartbeat (Xindong), which costs 29,800 yuan, differs from the older one not only in equipment, but also in a traction motor and a battery with more modest parameters. The electric motor develops 41 hp. and 150 N • m, which is enough to develop a top speed of 101 km / h. The acceleration dynamics is characterized by eight seconds from zero to 50 km / h. A 23.38 kWh lithium iron phosphate battery gives the subcompact a 150 km NEDC range.

By simply swapping the E-Star (above) for the simplified E-Star National Edition, the buyer will miss the LED headlights and LED running lights. What’s worse is that the National Edition has no airbags.

The National Edition Happy (Xinyue) package starts at 39,800 yuan (466,683 rubles) and is technically almost identical to the usual (modern) E-Star, but in the old body. The engine here already develops 75 hp. (170 N • m), the maximum speed is 125 km / h, acceleration to 50 km / h takes 5.1 s. The battery can be selected: either lithium iron phosphate for 31.18 kWh, or the so-called triple lithium (ternary) for 32.2 kWh. Passport power reserve in any case is 301 km according to NEDC. The Happy has rear parking sensors, front reading lights, radio and speakers, but the equipment is generally poor. But, according to the Chinese media, those who bought the E-Star National Edition before March 31, 2021, will receive free alloy wheels as a bonus.
