About SERES 3

Overview

Seres 3 is a budget-friendly electric SUV manufactured in China by the Chinese automaker DFSK (Dongfeng Sokon Automobile). It can produce 161 HP with its single electric motor sitting in the front. Seres 3 can go 405 kilometers when fully charged and it is in the €35,000 price range.

Battery electric SUV Seres 3 is available in Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, and Turkey right now. The firm has been planning to expand its market to other European countries in the near future.

In China, Seres 3 sold as Fengon E3 and there is a combustion engine version of the vehicle, as well. Starting price is 139,800 yuan (~$21,500).

Performance

Front-wheel drive Seres 3’s acceleration is very average, 0-100 km/h in 8.9 sec. Electric motor produces 161 HP and 300 Nm of torque, top speed is 160 km per hour.

The vehicle platform originally designed for combustion engine cars. That being said, Seres 3 could more of a BMW iX3 style EV other than a purely electric car like the Teslas. So, its driving experience is also not much different than its Chinese counterpart with petrol engine.

Design and Features

Seres 3’s central console is very similar to Mercedes EQA, air vents and infotainment screen look like they belong to a German car. And also, blue stitches around the edges of the synthetic leather constantly reminding that this is a fully electric vehicle.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto doesn’t support by the Seres’s own infotainment system, but at least you can mirror your smartphone’s screen to the center display.

Mid-size crossover has 360-degree view mode, thanks to the cameras all around the car. These cameras are also capable of recording driving sessions, in case of an accident etc.

The floor of the electric SUV is flat, but the rear seats are pretty low, and that’s not the most comfortable sitting arrangement for the passengers.

Range and Charging

According to NEDC standard, Seres 3 can travel 405 km with a fully charged battery while more realistic WLTP standard gave this car 300 kilometers of range. 52.5 kWh battery can be charged with DC plugs at up to 100 kW charging speeds. On-board 6.6 kW AC charging will full load the battery in 8 hours.
