Chevrolet Explorer Plus will be launched at the Beijing Auto Show to provide plug-in power.

A few days ago, SAIC-GM brand announced the launch of the first smart plug-in hybrid, named "Plus", which is actually an overseas version of the explorer. The new car adopts Chevrolet’s global new generation design language, and will provide two interior and exterior design styles, RS and ACTIV. That is to say, the domestic models will be in line with the overseas versions in design, and the whole car will be tougher, younger and more in line with the current aesthetics.

Both versions are equipped with split headlights and honeycomb air intake grille, of which the air intake grille of Activ version has a larger area and is all blackened; The RS version of the air intake grille is more compact and more sporty.

The side lines are relatively straight, and the suspended roof and C-pillar are still very recognizable, with the length, width and height of 4653/1902/1667mm and the wheelbase of 2730mm respectively, which are positioned in a compact type.

It should also be pointed out that the Activ version pays more attention to off-road orientation, while the RS version pays more attention to daily road driving, so they will be equipped with different styles of wheels and tires to cope with the use scenarios.

The design of the rear of the car is in line with the front face, with a distinct sense of hierarchy, and it does not use the penetrating light group that has been rotten in the street, retaining its own style, which is really worthy of praise.

The interior features a brand-new family style, a three-spoke steering wheel, an 11-inch digital dashboard and an 11.3-inch central control panel, which is more scientific and technological. The safety assistance kit for new cars includes enhanced lane keeping assistance, automatic emergency braking with collision alarm, adaptive cruise, blind zone alarm, rear traffic alarm with automatic braking, lane change alarm, etc., and has been upgraded a lot.

In terms of power, the domestic version is equipped with a PHEV hybrid system. According to the application information, the new car will be equipped with a system consisting of a 1.5T engine and a motor. The maximum power of the engine is 127 kW and the maximum power of the motor is 140 kW. It is produced by Qinghai Fudi Battery Co., Ltd., and the cruising range of pure electricity is unknown. It is estimated that it will exceed 100 kilometers, and a pure electric version based on the Ultraenergy platform will be launched later.
