About Changan Deep Blue SL03
Changan Auto is one of the biggest automakers in China. Recently, it has developed a new vehicle platform called EPA1, which supports all kinds of powertrain options including hydrogen fuel-cell applications. After some teasing and concept revealing, the first vehicle built on top of this platform is finally available and it’s called Deep Blue SL03.
SL03 is the debut model for Changan Auto’s new sub-brand Deep Blue (Shenlan; 深蓝). The electric sedan, also known as Shenlan SL03 has a distinctive look, especially on the front side of its exterior. Frameless doors, uniquely designed headlights, 1.3 meters-long panoramic sunroof, an infotainment screen that can rotate vertically, and a highly functional head-up display are some of its features worth mentioning.
Changan Deep Blue SL03 is being offered in three different powertrain options; battery-electric, hydrogen-electric, and plug-in hybrid. We provide you with the BEV version’s standard specs. It comes with a 258-HP RWD electric motor, 58.1-kWh battery, and offers 515 kilometers of range. There is also a less powerful and yet more energy-dense version available with a 79-kWh battery pack. The long-range version can travel as far as 705 km, according to CLTC standards.
You can compare Deep Blue SL03 with other Chinese electric sedans such as Leapmotor C01, AION S Plus, BYD Seal, etc.
