Default 2021 Arcfox α-T

Arcfox is Beijing Auto's (BAIC) "premium" EV brand.


It looks generic, but credible.

Magna also has done a lot of engineering work on the vehicle - I wonder if it has anything in common with the Sony Vision S concept.

Trying to find a website that lists the stats, but according to "China Car Times" on Facebook, this car has 218HP between the front and rear motors, and has a 93KW/H battery.

Live photos look less impressive though.

This thing is ugly. There are so many 'better' looking products from China - I'm surprised that someone thought releasing this concept was a good idea.

SO nearly all of the dash is a screen; I fail to see the benefit of that;

Bragging rights...that's about it.

It's like 0-60 times...sure, neat stat, but practically speaking, doesn't really accomplish that much in the real world.

I'd say even 0-60 is slightly more relevant (and this I'm saying when I don't really care about it at all), because occasionally you will still need the power when entering a motorway or driving fully loaded (though likely not if it is 3, 5 or 7 seconds); The lack of physical buttons, shiny screens with complex menus and the source for defects after warranty is however frustrating form day one in real life, because let's be honest, how often do you customize your cars instruments? 99,9% of VW and AUdi drivers I know use the factory standard setting which shows 2 round dials. And the only feedback they give is that they lack a volume button or scroll dial, and the only thing they use is carplay resp. Android Auto; Everything more is usually regarded as "junk in the system" in everyday use;
