Mullen Qiantu K50 is the perfect example of cultural diversity. The Chinese manufacturers have designed this car but it will sell in the United States. The Chinese automakers have invested too much in making this car. The car has amazing interior and exterior features. Let us look in detail at the amazing specs and features of the car.
Pricing and Release date:
Mullen has just released the Qiantu K50 in the New York auto show 2019. However, the car won’t hit the roads until 2020. Different start-up experts think that the new Qiantu K50 will be around $149,000 when it hits the roads. Mullen wants to sell around 1,000 cars in 2020. They have also targeted the sale of 5,000 cars by 2022. At the moment, the overall sales of battery-electric cars are just 1% in the market.
Engine and Performance:
To maximize the overall range and performance of the car, Mullen has built the K50 on the concept of “lightweighting”. Two twin electric motors have been connected to the 70-kilowatt-hour battery pack. This layout allows the “dynamic torque vectoring”. The K50 shifts power from the front to back. This way it easily moves through sharp turns and twisting roads. The suspension improves the ability of the car to manoeuvre.
The K50 has a 430 horsepower. This launches the car from 0 to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds and through a top speed of 112mph.
Qiantu has a 4-piston braking system, which helps in smooth braking over distances. The back and front carbon brakes are from Brembo. These help in thermal conductivity and better overall performance.
The car has a T-shaped battery pack, an approach inspired by General Motors. It fills the interior space quite quickly. The Company representative says that this approach is used because it reduces the investment cost and increases the flexibility of the K50.
Regarding the appearance of K50, the main difference between 2015 and the present day model is Front Fascia. The car has brand new tear shaped headlights, which make the car look like the BMW i8. The two grilles on the bumper are also different.
Mullen has painted the body in a combination of grey and black. The overall appearance of the car looks bolder than before. The car lacks aerodynamics equipment, which gives it an authentic appearance. The K50 has a two-tone scheme of Veyron, so it doesn’t look bad. There are distinct lines on the front end, which give the car a longer appearance.
In the rear end of the car, there is a flowing line, which moves towards the end of the rear fascia. However, it is different from the BMW i8 in the aspect that the lid has a clear glass and ducktail spoiler.
The interior of the K50 is clothed with Alcantara Material. The seats are also furnished with leather and Alcantara. Alcantara provides good support to the occupants. The seats are quite soft and equipped with heating and ventilation.
The car has a good infotainment screen along with a 6-inch HD central display. Some other amazing internal features of the K50 include an air-conditioning system, audio system, third-party integration, and the car phone interconnection.
Mullen Qiantu K50 has a unique inner circulation system. It also contains a roof solar panel, which activates when the temperature reaches 77 degrees promoting smooth and comfortable driving.
Mullen hasn’t tested the K50 for any crash tests yet. Some prominent safety features of the car include forward collision warning, blind-spot detection, lane-keeping assist, and driver assistance system. Thus, the car is safe for driving.
Mullen Qiantu K50 is a beautifully designed car. Although it has a great engine and interior features, the selling feature of the car will be its amazing exterior. So if you want to rid with style, you should buy the Qiantu K50.
