After bringing here two city electric car models named Lychee and Sunshine, the automobile importer USD will start marketing a new brand in Israel - BAW.
The first publication on the WHEEL website reveals that the model that will come to us is called the Pony and like the Lychee and the Sunshine it will also come with a quad bike standard, which limits travel in Regev to urban roads only.
BAW, which stands for Beijing Automobile Works, is a manufacturer that belongs to the BAIC group and since it was founded in 1953 produces a variety of vehicles including trucks, minibuses, SUVs, vans, private cars and military vehicles.
In May 2022, it added the S3 to its model range, which will be called "Pony" in Israel.
The electric micro car market in China is huge and is estimated to be about 9.5% of the electric car market in China.
Shem is another one of many makes and models, but on Israeli roads it is still a rather unusual vehicle.
Range: between 120 and 180 km depending on the battery (photo: manufacturer's website)
As a city car, it is packed in a tiny chassis, an overall length of 3.15 meters, 1.5 meters wide and an unusual height of 1.6 meters.
The wheelbase is 2.05 meters long and at least according to the manufacturer's data it will accommodate 4 passengers, the weight figure is only 620 kg. The
technical data as shown on the manufacturer's website is the power of 27 hp from an engine that is connected to the rear wheels and powered by a 9.6 or 13.6 kWh battery The range in the smaller battery version is about 120 km and in the larger one about 180 km. The maximum speed is 80 and 100 km/h respectively.
In the cabin, it comes with a dashboard and a 10.25-inch multimedia screen each located on a continuous panel.
A 360 camera, parking sensors, power steering, air conditioning, voice activation and WIFI are part of the accessories that appear on the manufacturer's website.
What does not appear is a detail about the safety accessories that the car will offer, although in the photo of the passenger cabin it can be seen that it is equipped with an airbag in the steering wheel.

The safety component is a critical point in these vehicles, in light of the problematic results they presented in tests previously conducted by the European Safety Organization for cars of this type.
So, cars made by India's Jag, France's Ixam and Ligier, Renault Twizy and others scored as low as two stars and that too under the ease these cars received in the test standard: a frontal crash test at a speed of only 40 km/h instead of 64 km/h "That.
BAW's model has yet to undergo a public crash test in China.
The price of the similar model marketed by the importer today, the Sunshine M2, starts at NIS 58,000, the pony which is larger than it, more modern and has a range and improved performance costs more than it, not surprisingly.
According to information that reached us but was not confirmed by the importer, the price of the car will be NIS 70,000.
