Brilliance aims to shine in a big way

Pete Mait

Chinese manufacturer Brilliance presented an electric concept car at the Shanghai Motor Show. It is fitted with lithium-ion batteries and has two motors, one of which provides 30bhp with a range of over 90 miles. If the second motor is switched on, a speed of over 80mph should be possible at over twice the power output. The 'pull out and slide' doors attracted great attention and the interior has many futuristic ideas. The steering wheel alone will certainly appeal to the youthful aspirations of quite a few drivers.
