JINHUA, CHINA, July 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kandi Technologies Group, Inc. (the “Company,” “we” or “Kandi”) (NASDAQ GS: KNDI), today announced that its affiliate company Fengsheng Automotive (the “Affiliate Company” or “Fengsheng”) launched sales of its first pure electric SUV, the Maple 30x.  The Maple 30x comes in five styles and five different colors.  In addition to the four styles offered in pre-sales earlier this year, Fengsheng also launched its “mobility version” customized for the urban mobility market.

The sales price after subsidy starts at RMB 68,800 (approximately USD $9,825) and goes up to RMB82,800 (approximately USD $11,825) for the premium package.

“The Maple 30X offers an outstanding combination of appearance, performance and value for the urban SUV market, demonstrating our competitiveness in the industry,” commented Xiaoming Hu, Kandi Technologies Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

The 100% electric Maple 30X is a versatile, compact “city SUV” featuring style, performance and comfort.  Its trendy front face adopts the star-shaped polygonal grill design, indicative of the automotive art philosophy of “dynamic aesthetics”, bringing a better visual width and making the vehicle looks more powerful and energetic.  This model is mainly positioned to attract young urban professionals.

The interior design style is simple but attractive, using environmentally friendly materials.  The air quality in the car is enhanced by the use of low emission coatings, putting the 30X at a leading level in the industry and fully protecting the health of the passengers.

With the Maple 30X motor’s maximum output of 70kw and a maximum torque of 180N.m, the driving range on a full charge is up to 306 km or 190 miles. The model comes with express charging and standard charging options.
