Avtotor showed the Amberauto A5 sedan – this is an analogue of the joint model of Renault and JMC

The company has already produced a pilot batch of electric four-door cars; they intend to sell these cars within the Kaliningrad region in order to collect data on the first operating experience. Subsequently, deep localization of the model is planned.

At the beginning of February, the Kaliningrad Avtotor plant announced the creation of the Amberauto electric vehicle brand. As it was reported then, this brand will produce both models of its own design and vehicles created as part of “technological cooperation with a number of partners.” And now the first-born has been announced – it is the Amberauto A5 electric sedan, and this is just a “joint” model.

The partner has not been named, but in the Amberauto A5 one can easily recognize the Chinese electric car JMEV Yi (aka GSE) from the joint venture of JMC (Jiangling Motors Corporation) and Renault. By the way, Renault itself also sold a similar four-door: in Europe, the model was presented under the Mobilize sub-brand, a sedan named Limo was intended mainly for taxis, but last fall it became known that the “electric train” left the “old-world” market due to weak demand.

It was also announced that the model has been adapted for use in the Russian climate, and has also been certified. The pilot batch is going to be implemented within the Kaliningrad region in order to “get the first operating experience here.”
