Volkswagen unveiled a new electric vehicle, the E-Bora, Tuesday in Changchun, northeast China's Jilin Province.
The company plans to trial the E-Bora next year in Foshan City, Guangdong Province, and Changchun City, Jilin, with a full market launch in 2013.
The Bora is stocked with VW’s Blue-e-Motion Li-ion batteries rated at 26.5kWH whilst the batteries weigh in at 315kg including their cooling systems.
The E-Bora's traction motor was developed by Sanyo with batteries supplied by BYD. VW are also working with various other battery suppliers to find the optimal one.
