About Changan Deep Blue SL03
Changan Auto is one of the largest automakers in China. Recently, it has developed a new vehicle platform called EPA1, which supports all kinds of powertrain options from hydrogen fuel-cell applications to battery electric systems. After some teasing and concept revealing, the first vehicle built on top of this next-gen vehicle 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 rear-wheel-drive electric motor, 58.1-kWh battery pack, 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 up to 705 km, according to CLTC test cycle.
Furthermore, the interior of the Deep Blue SL03 looks similiar to Tesla’s Model 3 and Model Y. There is no physical button on the front. You can easily access all controls through the large touchscreen, which is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8155 chipset. The infotainment system’s interface runs smooth, thanks to its decent chip and the operating system developed by Megatronix called SmartMega OS+.
You can compare Deep Blue SL03 with other Chinese electric sedans such as Leapmotor C01, AION S Plus, BYD Seal, etc. .
