I posted this in 2014. He missed a chance to weld a 2nd door frame onto the opening at an angle so it would flush out with the rest of the body.

Believe it or not, a sports car made in China
2014 Beijing Auto Show

Totalcar Magazine - Features - Believe it or not, a sports car made in China



Quote:
The Event Concept, a fully electric two-door, low silhouette sports car was made by a small Chinese design studio, CH Auto......................

The use of the electric drive chain is less surprising; not only because it is in keeping with the concept car trend, but also because China has made greater progress in developing electric cars than ones with internal combustion engines..................

The 400 PS electric motor with a torque of 650 Nm is powered by a 41.1 kWh Li-ion battery pack. The large battery makes the vehicle quite heavy, though: its curb weight is 1.685 tons, yet it does 0-100 km/h under 5 seconds and it has an electronically capped top speed of 200 km/h. Some data are even less impressive: the battery provides a range of up to 200 km and recharging the batteries takes 6 hours using a normal 220V socket.
The author avoids using the term "aerodynamic" in his description for some unknown reason.

Quote:
Its shape is pretty interesting. Although vaguely reminiscent of the Bentley Continental series from the side, it does not look like a copy and has good proportions.
If they took out the rear wheel haunch they might really have something there.

Hanergy is a Chinese firm that makes thin film solar panels for a variety of applications.
Its chairman, Li Hejun, was the richest man in China until it all came crashing down Enron style.

The name Hanergy is no doubt based on 'Han' and 'energy'. Chinese energy, therefore.
