The first showroom of the Evolute brand was opened in Moscow, and the cars have already begun to arrive to dealers. At the moment, Russians can only buy i-PRO electric sedans, which have been produced near Lipetsk since the end of September.
According to the official website of the company, there are 9 dealer centers in the Russian Federation - in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazan, Voronezh, Nizhny Novgorod, Krasnodar and Simferopol. However, not all cars are available.
At the same time, even in Moscow, Evolute models so far coexist with electric vehicles from other brands. But already in November, instead of Tesla and BMW models, Voyah Free crossovers are expected there, which are imported by Motorinvest. He is also engaged in the production of i-PRO. The showroom itself was opened on the site of the former Lexus dealership.
Technically, the Evolutes are localized versions of Dongfeng cars, and the i-PRO sedan is the Dongfeng Aeolus E70. The price of such a car in a single configuration is 2,990,000 rubles, however, due to the preferential car loan program, the price can be reduced to 2,065,000 rubles. It is not yet clear if there will be other configuration options. And by the end of the year, the I-Joy crossover will appear, which will become the second Evolute model.
Earlier it was reported that Uganda wants to supply electric vehicles to Russia.
