Aston Martin and Letv partner to build next gen electric vehicles


Aston Martin will partner with Letv, a Beijing based multinational company to build next generation electric vehicles. The Chinese company had announced its electric car plan on December 9th, 2014, when its founder, Mr. JiaYueting, announced that Letv will make electric vehicles and the project will be called SEE (Super Electric Eco-system).  Letv is working with Aston Martin and BAIC Motor Corporation on its first Electric vehicle, which will have its debut at Auto China 2016.

“The SEE Project will duplicate Letv’s complete vertically-integrated ecosystem and redefine the automobiles industry. We try to make the best internet and smart electric vehicles and build an internet-based vehicle eco-system,” said Jia’s microblog.

Recent reports have suggested that the first model will have racing car looks and will be 3.465m/1.625m/1.530m in length, width and height, with a wheel base of 2.345m long. The model will have two variations, the high- and low-powered ones.

The vehicle will equip Letv’s intelligent internet-based LeUI system with a 9-inch touch screen, and can interact with Letv’s other smart terminals. For example, Letv’s smart phones can control the vehicle and the vehicle can have a seamless interaction with Letv’s other eco-products.
