Chang’an Eado Hybrid will hit the China car market in 2014

BY JOEY WANG
The very first spy shots of the Chang’an Eado Hyrbid, it will be launched on the China car market in 2014. The hybrid will be a PHEV, or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. Details on the power train are scarce at the moment but we know that the gasoline engine is a 1.5 liter four-cylinder with 112hp.
The Chang’an Eado Hybrid is based on the petrol-powered Chang’an Eado sedan which was launched on the Chinese car market in March 2012. The EAdo is currently only available with a 124hp 1.6, but a 150hp 1.5 turbo will soon join the line-up. The 1.5 for the hybrid seems to be the naturally aspirated variant of that engine.
