Do you know how cars are graded?I hear A lot about who bought an A-class car and who bought A C-class car. So what's the difference between these cars?Actually the car into a00:1450:8006, A0, grade A, B, C, D, A German car (because the German automotive industry are strong enough so there boundaries) of A model segmentation approach, is not the general division standard in the world, also does not have strict rules between them, this kind of classification method mainly based on automobile wheelbase, parameters such as volume, weight, divided into alphabetical order more later, the level of the longer wheelbase, volume and weight, the greater the degree of luxury also enhances unceasingly.
At present, the classification of new energy vehicles also follows the classification method of traditional cars.Xiaobian today to take you to understand the traditional car classification method knowledge and application in new energy vehicles.
I. A-class model (also known as small passenger car)
A-class cars are actually subdivided into three classes: A00, A0 and A-class cars.
A00 class car: this class of car is the smallest, called MINI car, engine displacement is less than 1L, wheelbase is 2-2.2 meters, traditional car common models have Chery QQ, BMW MINI, BYD F0, Fiat 500, Alto and so on.A00 electric vehicles, represented by Micro electric vehicles such as Zhidou, Beijing Auto New Energy EC series, Chang 'an Benben and Chery eQ, occupy the vast majority of the market share of pure electric vehicles.
A0 sedan: This kind of vehicle is a small vehicle in people's mouth, with engine displacement between 1L and 1.3L and wheelbase of 2.2-2.3m. Common models include Dongfeng Citroen C2, Peugeot 207, Volkswagen POLO and other models.The size of a compact car is also small, but it can provide more spacious interior space than a minicar, and the configuration is much higher, so in terms of convenience and comfort, it has been upgraded to a higher level than a minicar.At the same time, small cars also have low fuel consumption and low maintenance costs, making them a good tool for urban commuting.
A0 class electric vehicles, such as BAIC New Energy EV series, JAC iEV series, BYD Yuan EV360, Chery Ruihu 3Xe400, BaiC EX360 and Changan CS15EV, etc.
A-class sedan: This class is A compact sedan with an engine displacement of 1.3-1.6L and A wheelbase of 2.3-2.45m. Common models include Nissan Sylvester, Volkswagen Lavina, Emgrand EC7 and other models. A-class electric vehicles are popular in first-tier cities, ranking second in market share behind A00 class cars, represented by baiC EU series, BYD E5, Emgrand EV, Roewe ERX5 and other brands.
2. B-class car (also known as mid-range passenger car)
The B-class sedan is in fact what is often referred to as a midsize sedan, with a displacement of 1.6-2.4L and a wheelbase of 2.45-2.60m. Common models include Audi A4, Honda Accord, Mercedes-benz C-Class, Toyota Camry and other models.B-class new-energy vehicles are mainly hybrid, such as Kia K5 hybrid version, ninth generation Sonata hybrid version, Accord hybrid version, etc.There are few b-class pure Electric models, such as baic new energy EH300, tesla Model3 and mercedes-benz Electric Drive pure Electric cars.
3. C-class vehicle (also known as high-end passenger vehicle)
Cars in this class are medium and large cars with engine displacement between 2.3 and 3.0L and wheelbase between 2.6-2.8m. Common models include BMW 5 Series, Cadillac XTS, Mercedes-benz E-Class, Audi A6 and other models.There are few C-class electric cars, and only the Yangtze ·EV, the first C-class concept car unveiled at the 2018 Beijing Auto Show, has a range of up to 1000km.
4. Class D vehicle, also known as luxury passenger vehicle
D class vehicle is also the luxury vehicle we say, this class of car displacement and wheelbase are the largest, displacement above 3.0L, wheelbase is not less than 2.8 meters, common models include Bentley Curtain, Rolls-Royce Phantom, Aston Martin Rapaid, Red Flag L5, imported Audi A8L, Mercedes S-class and other luxury vehicle models.
In a word, the classification of cars into A00, A0, A, B, C and D is a kind of model classification method in the German automobile industry, which is not a universal classification standard and also does not have strict rules between them, such as some said A0 car wheel base level generally between 2.3 meters to 2.6 meters, a-class car wheel base between 2.5 meters to 2.7 meters, b-class wheelbase is between 2.7 meters to 2.9 meters, etc.
