Replaceable Battery Mode + Very Large Ride Space, Is Ruilan 9 Worth Considering?
Speaking of Ruilan Automobile, I think everyone is relatively unfamiliar with it. As a "trainee" in field of new energy, last December he also introduced us to first all-electric product - Ruilan Blue 9, and New Car also gave us many surprises at the beginning of its launch.
As a purely electric mid-size SUV, new car not only has a superior body size and offers 6/7-seat versions, but also adopts a separate body and battery sales model. only 109,900. The price of last disposable "redemption" battery can also reach 169,900 yuan. Looking at whole clean electricity market, it is also extremely attractive. So far, only zero-mileage C11 known as Butcher's Price can compete with it!
And on March 21, Ruilan Motors' "Around World Measuring China: Geely Blue 9 Coastline Test Drive and Public Welfare Tour" officially launched in Haikou City. It is also a series of public welfare test projects with concept of "protecting beautiful ocean". During this experience, we also had an exciting product experience.
1 minute for full energy recovery
In fact, since Weilai has successfully promoted battery replacement model in China, it can be said that domestic new energy products are directly divided into two camps: battery charging / battery replacement, and advantage of battery replacement model is that replenishing energy is faster than refueling In principle, replacement of battery can be completed in a few minutes. On other hand, it can be said that domestic battery technology is constantly breaking through. The power consumption of batteries is getting higher and higher, and range is getting higher and higher. It also means that product has more "upgrade" potential.
However, while battery replacement model is good, there aren't many companies that have actually implemented it. After all, its threshold is extremely high. For example, companies must spend huge sums of money to set up battery replacement stations around world. country, and cost is also higher than ordinary charging piles. It is much higher, so you will also find that average price of products such as Weilai, which is best, is expected to be more than 400,000.
In contrast, Ruilan 9 only needs to spend more than 100,000 yuan to experience joy of battery replacement. No matter how you look at it, value for money is extremely great! It is commendable that Ruilan 9's battery replacement time only takes about 1 minute, which is also quite fast and convenient. As far as we understand, Ruilan Automobile has also invested in special battery replacement stations throughout country, and radiation range in future will gradually increase, expand and serve two main areas of online cars and passenger cars at same time.
Large space is formula for success in new cars
In terms of shape, while new car doesn't make much of an impression, it's certainly a beautiful model. To further enhance fashion sense of the product, many popular design elements have been added. to a new car, such as through-type LED daytime running lights, split headlights and so on.
However, there is one thing to say, in fact, considerate friends may find that Geely is behind Ruilan car after all, and this Ruilan 9 matches car's outline as well as interior design, seating distribution and structure Geely Haoyue L, released at end of last year, has a very strong resemblance.
It is commendable that length, width and height of new car are 4845/1890/1778mm respectively, wheelbase has reached 2825mm, and it features a 6/7 seating arrangement, just like 6-seat version we tested today . The first one has two types of soft seats, and it also has a very spacious space, which is enough to meet any household needs.
In addition, in 7-seat version, new car also has 7 independent reclining seats, which is very practical, and it is commendable that rear seats of new car can be completely folded down. reaches 2360L, and load capacity is very strong. According to manufacturer, in addition to domestic use, super-large space can even serve as a truck.
As for interior, Ruilan 9 works equally well. The interior of vehicle is also upholstered in soft leather materials and features a 12.3-inch LCD instrument cluster, a 12.3-inch floating central control screen and a head. It can be said that display system, etc., combined with wireless charging, seat ventilation / heating, 360-degree panoramic images, interior lighting, etc., is very rich in configuration.
In terms of power, new car is also equipped with a permanent magnet synchronous motor with a maximum power of 150kW and a maximum torque of 310Nm. Its parameters are not weaker than a 2.0T turbocharged engine. In actual test driving experience, you will also find that shift response of whole car is quite fast. Even if new car has a 2.3-ton body, it is quite easy to control, and even a switch stroke can give you a clear feeling of pushing back.
In addition, new car also has three driving modes: economical, comfortable and sporty. In everyday use, you only need to use Comfort mode. When you switch to sport mode, you will find that overall dynamics of response of new car will be faster, still can bring you a very good acceleration experience.
However, it should be noted that Ruilan 9 chassis uses McPherson independent front suspension and rear composite multi-link independent suspension. affect ride comfort of rear row, especially when encountering small bumpy sections of road, feeling of vibration in car is still relatively obvious, and body roll is relatively large during heavy driving.
In general, Ruilan 9 not only has a very affordable price, but also has excellent overall characteristics and good power. The pure electric mid-size SUV that is sought after by most family consumers is still worthy of our attention. But still, it should be noted that performance of new car in terms of battery life is not outstanding, and this is what consumers are most worried about.
In addition, Ruilan Automobile as a new brand can be said to have mixed reviews online. Even though Geely supports it, its products are still highly controversial among consumers. Therefore, while gaining popularity, clearing misunderstandings among consumers and actively promoting power plants are also key to whether brand can gain a foothold in increasingly competitive market for new energy vehicles.
