this “small” sports coupe is as massive as a Tesla Model 3

After the Nǎzhā (Neta) S sedan, the Chinese manufacturer intends to expand its range with the arrival of yet another electric car. A two-door, four-seater coupé with styling reminiscent of certain European and American models, the Neta E.

You might not be familiar with the Chinese manufacturer Nehza, and that’s normal, as it hasn’t settled in Europe yet. Even in China, this builder is still in its infancyalthough its reach is slowly but surely beginning to expand.

A few months ago, Nehza presented a soberly named “S” sedan, which joined the two “U” and “V” SUVs already available in the catalog. The manufacturer draws its inspiration from European manufacturers.

The Nehza S looks like a mix between a Citroën at the front and an Audi e-tron GT at the back, while the Nehza E that we present to you today is kind of a mix between the new Lotus Emira and a Chevy Corvette.

The dimensions of a Tesla Model 3

However, the Nehza E is not a pure sports car. It is a two-door coupe with four seats. Nezha Automobile has today released a number of images of its new model, which is expected to be launched in the first half of 2023.

As is customary in China, the car also appeared in the registry of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

Judging by data passed on by IT Homethe new Nehza E measures 4.70 meters long, 1.98 meters wide, 1.41 meters high and has a wheelbase of 2.77 meters. We are far from the dimensions of a small sports car, contrary to what you might imagine from the pictures.

Two versions of the program

Regarding the engines, the car will have several versions. There will be a model with a single electric motor located on the rear axle (which will provide propulsion), while a version with two electric motors (thus providing four-wheel drive) is also planned.

The smaller version would 170 kW (approx. 231 hp), while the largest would claim 340 kW (approx. 462 hp).

Regarding the batteries, no information is currently available. We just know that the “smallest” variant will be able to handle it 560 km with a single charge according to the Chinese CLTC homologation cycle and up to 580 km for the four-wheel drive version.

If this electric car ever comes to Europe, its mixed autonomy on the European WLTP cycle should rather be between 450 and 500 km. It would then be difficult to overshadow the Tesla Roadster, unless its price, which is not yet known in China, is really affordable, which is very likely.

Chinese electric cars are much more expensive in Europe than in China: the 3 main reasons for this

“Chinese car” no longer necessarily rhymes with “low price”. In fact, Chinese manufacturers establishing themselves in Europe show their models at prices very close to “traditional” manufacturers and therefore sometimes very far from…
