Besides the Lithia sports coupe, CH Auto had a small electric city car on display, the Cylent. Both cars were penned after CH Auto hired former GM design manager Dan Darancou to lead their design team.
The Cylent weighs 700 kg and measures 2852 Ã— 1585 Ã— 1472 mm (length Ã— width Ã— height), roughly between the smart fortwo and the Toyota iQ in size.
Its permanent-magnet motor delivers a 15 second 0-60 km/h time, although CH-Auto also said its top speed is 50 km/h. The lithium-ion battery pack has a capacity of 8.5 kwh, giving it a 100km range electric range and only needs two hours for a full charge.
The boomerang-shaped object on top of the car is actually a 4G LTE antenna, which enables the Cylent to not just stay connected to the Internet but also function as a WiFi hotspot.
Thanks to its Internet connection, it can provide navigation with real-time traffic data, roadside assistance and more.
