The Chinese manufacturer SAIC unveiled the Maxus EUNIQ 6 in 2021 as an all-electric mid-size SUV under the Maxus name. The SAIC MAXUS D60 and the EUNIQ 6 are both based on the SAIC MAXUS MERA intelligent platform. There will be two types offered: electric and plug-in hybrid.
The EUNIQ 6 is based on the Maxus D60 SUV, which targets the European market. As a result, the firm made every effort to diversify it. A model can have five or seven seats. Additionally, there are gasoline, hybrid, and all-electric models available. These variants are all fundamental; the only way they differ from one another is in the type of drive.
The importer stated on April 22, 2021, “RSA now confirms that the all-electric Maxus Euniq 6, a large and capacious SUV, will also be offered for the Nordic market around the end of 2021.” The Euniq 6 will join the Euniq 7 electric MPV as the first Maxus SUV in Norway.
Exterior of Maxus Euniq 6
The new Maxus EUNIQ 6 has a respectable exterior and a balanced, unassuming body. Although the look is a little archaic, Maxus does not claim to be extremely futuristic. The SUV’s headlamps are slim and fashionable, despite being LED. The front end design is more complex on the all-electric variant because it has no grille at all. Additionally, the electric EUNIQ 6 has unique tires and wheels with reduced rolling resistance and airflow. The electric version’s exhaust pipes are merely replaced with chrome trim. The electric car is 1,860 mm wide, 1,736 mm tall, and 4,735 mm long. The ground clearance is 160 mm and the wheelbase is 2,760 mm.
You should be aware right away that this is a front-wheel drive vehicle with no all-wheel drive system built specifically for city driving conditions, not an off-road vehicle or a sophisticated SUV.
Interior of Maxus Euniq 6
The inside is really roomy. Tall people may not have enough headroom, but there is adequate legroom in the car. The 2021 Maxus EUNIQ 6 is well-equipped, with features including a 14.2-inch HD touchscreen infotainment system, color head-up display, 12.3-inch virtual dashboard, adaptive cruise control, autonomous parking, and level 2.5 semi-autonomous driving capabilities, among many more. Not all European automobiles can provide this much.
Powertrain and Battery of Maxus Euniq 6
Two battery options are available for the new Maxus EUNIQ 6: a 52.5 kWh lithium-ion pack and a 70 kWh battery. The 52.5 kWh battery has a maximum driving range of 350 km (NEDC cycle), while the 70 kWh battery has a maximum driving range of 510 km (NEDC cycle). The driving range can range from 400 to 475 kilometres when using the European WLTP test cycle.
If you use a standard AC charger, this will take you just under 9.5 hours to fully charge a smaller battery and 11 hours to fully charge a larger battery. Additionally, a rapid charger can be used to complete a charge of up to 80% in 30-35 minutes.
The model has a single electric motor that produces 130 kW and 310 Nm of torque. The top speed it can produce is up to 170 km/h.
The radiator grille on the hybrid EUNIQ 6 PLUG IN is identical to that on the SUV that runs on gas. Only the blue ornamental stripes and the blue background of the headlamp group reveal this car’s hybrid nature. The rest of the car, including the 19-inch wheels, is identical to the gasoline-powered counterpart.
Safety in Maxus Euniq 6
The 2021/2022 Maxus EUNIQ 6 is equipped with cutting-edge safety features like lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, traffic sign recognition, lane change assist, and rear cross traffic warning in addition to a full set of airbags and curtains that meet European safety regulations.
Dimensions of Maxus Euniq 6
The Maxus Euniq 6 is the Maxus D60’s all-electric counterpart; it has a different name and a different look. It has the following dimensions: 4,735 mm long, 1,860 mm wide, and 1,736 mm high. It had a 160 mm ground clearance and a 2,760 mm wheelbase.
Features of Maxus Euniq 6
The Euniq 6’s primary features include full LED headlights, 19-inch wheels, a panoramic sunroof with silver brakes, a 12.3-inch virtual instrument cluster, a color head-up display, a 14-inch HD touchscreen infotainment system, and an air purifier. Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Traffic Sign Recognition, Lane Change Assist, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert are just a few of the driver assistance and safety features that Maxus offers. The Euniq 6’s closed grille, a chrome appliqué joining the roof rails and window, and a slightly modified rear bumper set it apart from the PHEV.
Price of Maxus Euniq 6
The entry-level variant of Maxus Euniq 6 comes in at $23700 and the top-level trim comes at $29000.
SAIC introduced the 2021 Maxus Euniq 6 to the Chinese market. The Euniq 6 has only been available for a year, therefore there have been no design modifications. The MY2021 offers new financing options, auto connectivity subscription plans, and four different model options: LITE, LITE+, MATE, and EXTRA. Maxus made these adjustments in response to early consumer input, and this year’s shipment to the Norwegian market will be the same version.
