The Hozon Auto brand, which produces electric cars and hybrids, may appear on the Russian market in the near future, Izvestia writes, citing its representatives. And sources of Kitayskie Avtomobili say that Hozon is already choosing a local distributor and has begun certification – although it is still unknown which model. The list of the most likely candidates includes crossovers, of which there are currently three in the Neta lineup.

The Neta brand was launched in 2018 by Hozon Auto, a young NEV manufacturer founded four years earlier. Today, its lineup includes five models: Aya, X, S, GT, and L. Neta sold nearly 54,000 vehicles in the first half of this year.

Neta is already being delivered to Russia, but so far in a grey area. As for official deliveries, the first to reach the Russian market may be crossovers – these are electric Aya and X, as well as L, which also has a hybrid version.

However, Aya is a questionable option: it has a small electric motor and a short range, and the price will be too high due to transportation, which will negatively affect demand.

The Neta X is more likely to appear. This is a 4.6-meter electric crossover with a 2.8-meter wheelbase and a five-seater interior, which has a large 15.6-inch central display. It is driven by an electric motor with a capacity of 163 horsepower on the front axle, and two batteries – 52 or 62 kilowatt-hours. The power reserve is in the range of 401 to 501 kilometers according to the Chinese CLTC cycle. In its homeland, the X costs 99.8-151.8 thousand yuan, which is equal to 1.2-1.85 million rubles.

The second crossover, which is expected to debut in Russia, is the flagship Neta L, similar in size to the Geely Monjaro. It is 4.77 meters long with a wheelbase of 2.81 meters, and in the cabin of the top version there are two 15.6-inch displays, a refrigerator and an audio system with 16 speakers.

The petrol-electric version is equipped with a 231-horsepower electric motor on the rear axle and optional 30- and 40-kilowatt-hour batteries, as well as a 1.5-liter internal combustion engine not connected to the wheels. The total range of this version is 1,300 kilometers. The L electric car is offered with the same electric motor and a 68-kilowatt-hour battery, providing up to 510 kilometers of travel. The price of the model is from 129.9-178.9 thousand yuan or 1.55-2.15 million rubles.
