The model is aimed at buyers leading an active lifestyle. It has a hybrid power plant with the ability to charge from the network, air suspension and a convertible interior. Additionally, the G318 will be offered with a wide selection of camping accessories – from an expedition rack to sun canopies. According to unofficial data, the SUV will cost 250-300 thousand yuan.

The premiere of the new Deepal model (the brand belongs to Changan) with the index G318 took place in China. What’s unusual is that the SUV was created inspired by the TV series “Star Trek”, and therefore is stuffed with many references to interstellar travel. For example, the Chinese compare the solid front end to the bow of a starship, and for the stern they use the term Space Gate. Inside, everything is also reminiscent of space: for example, the panel with the power window buttons is an “interstellar light energy gun,” and the transmission selector is a traction control lever.

The new product has independent suspension, electronically controlled shock absorbers and air struts – all this is included in the standard equipment. The power plant is hybrid, sequential type. The wheels in the G318 are rotated by two electric motors, and the energy for them is generated by a 1.5-liter gasoline engine. The combined output of the system is 430 horsepower. On electric power, the car travels 155 kilometers (WLTP), the rated consumption is 7.4-7.7 liters per “hundred”. Acceleration to hundred takes 6.3 seconds.

The SUV is capable of towing a trailer weighing 1,600 kilograms and powering external devices with a power of up to six kilowatts. For forays into nature, the car can be equipped with an expedition trunk, sun canopies and a tent. 16 driving modes will help you get to your destination, no matter how far it is from civilization, including profiles for mud, snow, sand, steep climbs, as well as specialized presets like “tank turn.”

The G318 interior is designed for five. The backs of the front seats recline completely, forming makeshift sun loungers. But if you fold the second row, taking into account the trunk floor, you get a bed 1.8 meters long. How much the G318 will cost is still unknown. Chinese media suggest that 250-300 thousand yuan, that is, 3.2-3.9 million rubles. Deepal plans to sell 10 thousand copies per month, and given the capacity of the local market, the figure is quite reasonable.
