The Chinese state-owned company Dorcen has been manufacturing vehicles with internal combustion engines in China since 2018. The Elaris company in Germany takes over the sale of vehicles from the Dorcen, Zhidou and, more recently, Skywell, Chinese brands.
After the Elaris Finn and the Elaris Leo compact SUV, Elaris is now introducing the Elaris Beo electric SUV, which is 4.69 m in length and roughly the same as the Seat Taracco and originally a product of the Skywell Chinese brand. The Beo's 150 kW electric motor only drives the front wheels. With a battery capacity of 72 kWh, according to Elaris, a range of 460 km should be achieved in the WLTP. The manufacturer specifies the power consumption in this cycle as 17.2 kWh.
