Jetour X70S EV receives a mild facelift in China
Jetour, a sub-brand of Chery, revealed the second generation of its X70 Plus SUV this autumn, landing it with a number of considerable improvements. Some of us had expected the all-electric X70S EV to follow suit, but it only received a slight refresh.
The pre-facelift crossover, which you can see in the video, had a large fake grille at the front. The new one sports a solid front fascia not unlike that of the Chery Mǎyǐ and has an access window with two charging ports. It rides on black wheels and has a different rear bumper with a trapezoid insert. The interior stays largely unchanged except for blue trim accents.
No technical specs have been made available yet, but media speculate that nothing will change on that front. The car’s only electric motor will continue to churn out 170 PS (168 hp / 125 kW) and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque, and the 56-kWh battery will still be enough for 401 km (250 miles) of NEDC-rated range.
Prices remain to be announced. The current generation starts from 149,800 Yuan ($22,800 USD) with the state subsidies factored in.
