Zinoro 1E[edit]

Zinoro 1E (之诺1E) is all-electric crossover, based on the BMW X1 (E84), was the first product of BMW Brilliance’s new brand and the first new energy vehicle (NEV) from a Chinese premium manufacturer. It was unveiled at the 2013 Guangzhou Auto Show.[1]

The Zinoro 1E had a rear-mounted 125 kW electric motor and produced a peak torque of 250 N·m (184 lb-ft). The motor is powered by a lithium iron phosphate battery pack that can deliver an all-electric range of up to 150 km (93 mi). Charging of the battery takes around 7.5 hours with a 16A wallbox. Top speed is electronically limited to 130 km/h (81 mph).[1]

After early 2014 the Zinoro 1E was available for leasing only in Beijing and Shanghai, and the company planned[needs update] to open another showroom in Shenyang.[1][2] Leasing starts at 400 RMB per day (~US$65) or 7,400 RMB per month (~US$1,200). The annual contract was planned to include the wall box charger, car registration plate, insurance, maintenance, and repairs[clarification needed].[2] The Zinoro 1E is eligible for a NEV plate in Beijing, which had a registration quota of 20,000 new energy vehicles for 2014.[2][needs update] In Shanghai license plates are auctioned for the equivalent of just under €10,000 as of September 2014. As of 2014, electric cars received their license plate free of charge.[3]
