Foxtron Model E: photos...

We have mentioned the new Foxtron electric sedan before. 
But I don't think I had seen these photos.

The name is actually quite funny: Model E. Something Tesla had tried to secure a few years ago for what became the Model 3. Not sure how these guys got it... (some Chinese copyright thing I suppose)

The new sedan was designed by Pininfarina. Which is actually a bit of a dissapoitment. Since it doesn't look like anything special (Like these new Vinfast SUVs, also from Pininfarina)
It basically looks like a cross between a Lucid and a tesla.
Same thing inside, where things look fine but uninspired. Not what you'd expect from a top Italian design firm.

Specs are, of course, great. But who knows if this will ever really exist.
They are already talking about a range of over 460 miles and 0 to 60 in 2.8 seconds.
Apparently, they are really buying a factory in the US from Lordstown in Ohio. And of course, they plan to have 10% of the global EV market by 2025. 
In just a bit over 3 years!

We've heard many of these crazy claims before. from many other companies. 
I guess we'll have to wait and see...

This looks like VW tried to make a ID Passat.

This should be Apple's car; they're in bed with Foxtron.

Vinfast = I will never buy anything from that country.

Looks like a baby Lucid Air. Pretty soon, all EVs are going to be really hard to differentiate from.

The styling is smooth, sleek and a little bland - nicely done, but not memorable.

I think the interior would be a good place to spend time in. Calm and unfussy. I like it.

Hopefully it'll be a good car to own and drive, but you won't be wowing the neighbours.

Never buy anything from that country - LIAR !!!, I saw you at Walmart today. I once said that of Japanese cars, because I was a racist.

Looks like they stole Rivian's steering wheel too.

Cool car. Just watch out for the smallest bump in the back bumper. Ouch. That's gonna leave a ding in the wallet.
