Following rumors earlier this month, Chinese appliance giant Skyworth officially announced Tuesday that it is entering the car-making world.
On April 27, Skyworth founder Huang Hongsheng announced that Skywell Auto had changed its name to Skyworth Auto, and unveiled the Skyworth ET5 model from the previously available Skywell ET5.
The new car has the Skyworth name emblazoned on the center of the taillight.
Skywell, founded by Huang, launched the Skywell ET5 in October last year.
The brand has launched a total of four models, offering two range versions with NEDC ranges of 410km and 520km respectively.
The new vehicle is positioned as a mid-sized pure electric SUV with a length, width and height of 4698mm/1908mm/1696mm and a wheelbase of 2800mm.
The new vehicle is equipped with a 12.3-inch LCD instrument and 12.8-inch center screen, and is equipped with a HEPA-level air conditioning filter.
It is worth noting that Skywell has developed the core technology of new energy buses including electric motors, electric control and electric drive.
Compared with Xiaomi and other new car makers who started from scratch, Skyworth has already accumulated some experience in the field of car making.
At present, the trademark related to "SKYWORTH" has been registered by Skyworth Group Limited, and the current status of the trademark is mostly pending substantive review and trademark application.
Skyworth Group Limited was established in June 2000 with a registered capital of HK$1.83 billion, and its business scope includes investment consulting for industrial projects, economic information consulting, import and export of goods and technologies, and technical consulting for household electrical products.
