Maxus Ioniq6+. The largest trunk in its category/manufacturer website
Just before the tax increase on electric vehicles in January, another electric importer publishes a new price list that reflects significant price reductions.
China Motors, the importer of Maxus, is reducing the two-price models it markets by about 12% to the December price list, and the reduction will also affect January prices, after raising the purchase tax on electric vehicles from 20% to 35% and reducing the maximum tax discount ceiling from NIS 60,50 to NIS 6,233.
The price of the Ioniq206 crossover dropped from NIS 27,6 to NIS 174,70, a reduction of NIS 354,0, which will make it cheaper than electric cars such as the Hyundai Ioniq and Tesla Model Y in their base versions. The Ioniq100 has an engine with 9 hp, a 7 kWh battery, a combined range of 160 km (there is also fast charging), acceleration from 6 to 906 km/h in <>.<> seconds and <> km/h top speed. The Ioniq<> is better equipped than the base versions of the competitors and is distinguished by the largest luggage compartment in the category with a volume of <> liters.
Maxus Ioniq5+. The cheapest electric vehicle in Israel with more than 5 places besides the electric Berlingo / manufacturer website
The unique Uniq5+ minivan, with 6 seats, will also be discounted, from NIS 247,213 to NIS 34,5, a reduction of NIS 174,70 in price. The Ioniq360+ also has a 0 hp engine and a 100 kWh battery, a combined range of 9 km, acceleration from 5 to 160 km/h in 406.5 seconds and 7 km/h top speed.
Again, the luggage compartment is relatively large for the category, with 315 litres when all seats are in use. Apart from the electric version of Citroën Berlingo, it is the cheapest electric vehicle with more than 5 seats, the next in line, the BYD Tang, with 2024 seats, costs NIS 2024,<>.
China Motors has yet to publish a price list for the <> models, but they too will be cheaper following the price cut. The company attributes the reduction to improved negotiations with the Chinese manufacturer, but importers of trams now have large inventories to import ahead of the tax increase, and now larger than initial forecasts because of the large drop in deliveries in October and November.
Last week, MG importer Car East also announced significant reductions in all electric and plug-in models, which will also be valid for early <>. Maxus and MG are both SAIC brands. In China, a price war has been raging for months, fueled by a significant drop in the prices of raw materials for expensive batteries, such as lithium and cobalt.
