DFSK SERES 3 - First 200 units exported to Germany

On October 8, the first 200 units of the DFSK SERES 3 were shipped to Germany and should arrive next month.

This electric car has similar dimensions to the Kia e-Niro, a starting price of 32.500 euros and a 52,56 kWh cobalt-free LFP (LiFePO4) battery.

 

Let’s see some of its specs.

  • Length: 4.385 mm
  • Wheelbase: 2.655 mm
  • Width: 1.850 mm
  • Height: 1.650 mm
  • Ground clearance: 180 mm
  • Curb weight: 1.690 kg
  • Gross weight: 2.065 kg
  • Seats: 5
  • Motor: 120 kW and 300 N.m of torque
  • Acceleration: 0-100 km/h in 8,9 seconds
  • Battery: 52,56 kWh cobalt-free LFP chemistry with 8 year warranty
  • Range: 405 km in NEDC
  • Fast charging: 20-80 % in 30 minutes
  • Slow charging: 8 hours
  • Starting price: 32.500 euros (before subsidies)

 

In the more realistic WLTP test cycle the range should be around 300 km and the consumption 17,5 kWh/100 km.

 

DFSK SERES 3

 

We still don’t know what safety rating this electric car will get in the Euro NCAP crash tests. Last year the MG ZS EV scored a perfect 5-star rating, while the Aiways U5 only got 3 stars.

My interest in electric transportation is mostly political. Iโ€™m tired of coups and wars for oil. My expectation is that the adoption of electric transportation will be a factor for peace and democracy all over the world.

    VW, Renault, PSA, and Fiat better be doubling down on BEVs and quality because the Chinese are coming..
    The up coming onslaught of Chinese competition makes me think VW is very foolish for not selling every eUP they can and not producing even more…
    In addition to DFSK, MG, and Aiways they will be facing a minimum of 5 new Chinese brands in the next year or two…

    They will most likely be coming to the US a year or two later after Trump is most likely gone..
    Even if Trump is still here they will still be coming…
    Kandi a second or third rate company is starting sales here this year…

    What is your opinion about price? It’s seems that all EV car makers have some agreement about price. Lots of 30ish Euros price

    Good to see this, although I would like to see what WLTP range rating it achieves.

    Will it match the Citroen e-C4’s range of 350 km? That’s a good goal to strive for, to appeal as an acceptable “all rounder” for European families. The Citroen starts at โ‚ฌ35.6k (in France).

    The MG5 also offers this 350km WLTP and may be priced below the SERES 3’s โ‚ฌ32.5k.
    Either way, good to have more options in this mid-price segment – all of them far better value than ICE vehicles.

    Great stuff! More relatively practical EVs at prices that continue to inch downward, increasing the competition in Europe.

    I know DFSK sells cars in Indonesia too, I wonder if theyโ€™re going to start exporting them there as well? Iโ€™m not sure Indonesia has enough incentives for EVs yet though, but they are certainly talking about it there. I think they intend to compete with Thailand to become a regional EV hub.
