The flagship i-Jet electric car is preparing to enter the market, which will become the most powerful and dynamic model of the Lipetsk brand: it has a 585-horsepower unit that allows it to accelerate from zero to 100 kilometers per hour in exactly four seconds. The cost is appropriate: taking into account all kinds of discounts from Evolute and state support, i-Jet will cost 5,545,000 rubles.

For comparison, the most expensive Evolute model after the i-Jet, the i-Sky crossover, costs almost two million rubles less, starting from 3,795,000 rubles. For i-Joy they ask from 2,699,000 rubles, and i-Pro sedans from a limited edition can be bought for 1,689,000 rubles, subject to a number of conditions – when applying for comprehensive insurance and handing over the car for a trade-in.

The premium sports E-SUV, as Evolute itself calls i-Jet, entered the assembly line of the Motorinvest plant in Lipetsk in December last year. This is a tweaked Dongfeng Seres SF5, which has been sold in China since 2019.

The crossover is equipped with a twin-engine power plant with a capacity of 585 horsepower (940 Nm of torque). It is powered by a lithium iron phosphate battery with a capacity of 80 kilowatt-hours, providing a range of 483 kilometers.

There will also be a second, larger 90-kilowatt-hour battery option. With it, the i-Jet will be able to cover 530 kilometers, but the cost of such a crossover has not yet been disclosed.

The model’s equipment list includes all-round cameras and various electronic assistants, a 12.3-inch diagonal digital instrument panel, a large 15.6-inch multimedia touchscreen, a head-up display and eco-leather upholstered seats with massage, ventilation, heating and memory.

There is also interior lighting with 64 colors, and seven shades are prepared for the exterior – Arctic White, Starry Night, Platinum Grey, Olive Green, Pearlescent and Sky Blue.
