The top-tier, long-range version is priced at CNY 268,800 (USD 37,390) which is still ridiculously affordable by US standards. Other RD6 features include 6 kW vehicle-to-load (V2L) capabilities, plus 220V and 12V interfaces.
Geely's new electric pickup truck marque, Radar Auto, has officially launched its first electric pickup truck in China. Production is underway overseas, and order books have opened, starting at an MSRP of around USD 25,000. Radar Auto is a new name to many, but the automaker is actually a subsidiary of the larger Zhejiang Geely Holding Group Co., Ltd.
The group is one of the top 10 largest automotive manufacturers in China and is the parent company to several EV brands, including JIDU, Lotus, Volvo Cars, and ZEEKR. Geely also co-owns Polestar alongside Volvo. The Radar Auto RD6 electric pickup comes standard with a single motor that delivers up to 200 kW of power and can accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 6.9 seconds. Chinese customers can choose between three battery pack options offering the following CLTC ranges: 63 kWh – 400 km (249 mile), 86 kWh – 550 km (342 mile), and 100 kWh – 632 km (393 mile). The version of the RD6 with the 249 mile range starts at price of CNY 178,800, which is approximately USD 24,870. Although this electric pickup is only being sold in China right now, that level of pricing is significantly lower than any electric truck in the US. The 86-kWh battery pack is available on two different versions of the RD6 priced at CNY 198,800 (USD 27,650) and CNY 228,800 (USD 31,825).
The top-tier, long range version is priced at CNY 268,800 (USD 37,390) which is still ridiculously affordable by US standards. Other RD6 features include 6 kW vehicle-to-load (V2L) capabilities, plus 220V and 12V interfaces. Production is underway in China with first deliveries expected in January of 2023.
