Leapmotor launches its first mass-produced model with CTC technology

HANGZHOU, China, April 25, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–On February 25, 2022, Leapmotor showcased the highlights of its new C01 model for the first time. It is a mid-to-large size electric sedan built on the company’s C-Vehicle platform. It is also the first mass-produced model with a length of more than five meters, equipped with CTC battery technology, an ultra-long range of 700 km and capable of acceleration to 100 km/h in less than four seconds. This model completes the Leapmotor portfolio and is scheduled to launch in Q2 2022.

Natural and technological aesthetics to create an intimate and personal “style”

The Leapmotor C01 harnesses natural aesthetics as a design concept, to highlight an intelligent mobility experience. The design of the C01 features technical elements that provide a comfortable environment while the immersive cabin allows young, trendy urban families to experience luxury.

Introducing the key features of the C01

Leapmotor’s comprehensive set of R&D capabilities has resulted in the C01’s must-have features: CTC technology, acceleration, vehicle length, and NEDC range. The C01 is destined to become a popular product in the EV market.

#1 – Leapmotor’s first mass-produced model with CTC technology

CTC (Cell-To-Chassis) is an advanced technology that integrates the battery to the chassis for better shock resistance and optimization of vehicle power. The C01 offers increased maneuverability and range, as well as greater safety in the event of a collision thanks to CTC technology.

Zero to 100 km/h in less than four seconds — Fastest acceleration among Chinese electric sedans in the same class, at super sports car level

The Leapmotor C01 is characterized by one of the fastest accelerations among Chinese sedans of the same class. It is equipped with the “Higher Dimension” intelligent power system: electric transmission with oil cooling and variable structure, with a service life of up to one million kilometers and with the best energy efficiency and NVH performance (noise, vibration, hardness) in the world to meet the demand for high-performance, long-range EVs. This performance is also optimized thanks to the recessed handles, the “sportback” design, the hyper-low aerodynamic coefficient of 0.226 and the weight reduced by 5% for better performance.

Vehicle Length Over Five Meters — Mid to Large Sedan

A mid-to-large sedan, the Leapmotor C01 is over five meters long, offers more legroom in the rear, as well as a larger trunk, for exceptional comfort.

Ultra-long NEDC range of 700 km — Satisfying long-distance travel needs

The C01 is equipped with a super large capacity 90kWh battery that can reach an ultra-long NEDC range of 700km to satisfy consumers’ long-distance travel needs. The intelligent battery management system and the integrated modular system can improve battery life, autonomy and overall safety.

Full range of R&D capabilities driving innovation

Leapmotor is committed to expanding its portfolio of R&D capabilities, for example by filing 1,474 patent applications, of which 939 have been approved and 40% represent innovation patents.

In 2021, Leapmotor expanded its product lineup by releasing the C11, a mid-size smart electric SUV that allowed it to enter the RMB 150,000-200,000 SUV sector long dominated by automakers. .
