And yes, it does look a lot like a weird version of the Lexus RX. With a bit of everything else thrown in there.
But let's get past the name. (As well as some design elements). And take a look at the specs:
-2.0 Liter Engine with 205HP
-2 electric motors with 150HP each.
-505 HP total!!!
-531 lb ft of torque!!!
-505HP and 117MPG!
It all sounds crazy. On top of it all, the price. Starting at the equivalent of $48 000.
Before local incentives.
Which right now, in China, would bring the actual cost down to around $35 000.
A $35 000 SUV with 505HP that gets 117MPG.
Again, it sounds pretty crazy and unreal.
The Warren Buffet backed Chinese company will introduced other plug-in SUVS in 2015. Named Song and Yuan. A third one named Ming will follow later.
I mean, if Warren Buffet's company owns part of it, it can't be that bad. Right?
I can't wait for someone to actually drive this thing and report on it....
The crowd funding of "Burlapp trip to China" starts right now!
