Thunder Power has introduced their new sedan concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Designed to preview the 2017 production model, the concept features a curvaceous design from Zagato.  Notable highlights include LED headlights, an oval-shaped grille and a unique rear end with an integrated spoiler.

The exterior styling leaves something to be desired but the cabin is another story as it features a pleasing design that incorporates premium leather upholstery, wood trim and metal accents.  The model also has a "TP-Touch" system which spans the width of the dashboard an combines the instrument cluster and infotainment system into one huge customizable display.

The entry-level model will have an electric motor that develops 312 PS (230 kW) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque.  It will enable the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than six seconds before hitting a top speed of 210 km/h (130 mph).

There will also be a high-performance variant with an electric motor that produces 435 PS (320 kW) and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque.  Thanks to the extra oomph, the car will run from 0-100 km/h in less than five seconds before hitting a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

Both models will feature a 125 kWh  lithium-ion battery which will enable them to have a range in excess of 650 km (404 miles).  When the battery is depleted it can be recharged in less than 6 hours.  There is also a fast charging mode that enables the car to have a 300km range in under 30 minutes and nearly a full charge in an hour.

The sedan will also ride on a dedicated platform that uses lightweight materials.  The company was coy on specifics but said the platform is modular and can be used to underpin everything from compacts car to large crossovers.
