Cleanova, the electric car developed by Heuliez and Dassault on the platform of Renault Kangoo will be built as a series model and sold in China.

Serge Dassault has announced that he reached an agreement with the investment group China Citic Group to produce the Cleanova model starting from 2008.

The platform for the model is not yet know, but it seems it will be the same as the first Cleanova prototype, that of the Renault Kangoo. The technical data will remain the same, a 25kw battery, a maximum speed of 100km/h and a 200km autonomy.

Untill now, the only electrical car sold in China was the Electric Car City Smart, a copy of the well know european Smart. The main market of the Cleanova will be the taxi area, with a few thousand orders already made by taxi companies from Pekin.
