SKYWELL ET5 analogue of a well-known automotive brand

SKYWELL ET5 is not an analogue of a famous car brand, but an electric crossover developed from scratch. At the same time, the company itself, which dared to conquer the world of automobile industry, until a certain point was one of the famous brands-manufacturers of electronics for the home. Skyworth’s Skywell Auto division has been producing electric buses in the Celestial Empire since 2010, which is why the announcement of the electric car was not met with surprise or excessive excitement.


He who dares once will conquer the world

Multi-disciplinary companies that can produce household goods and aeroplanes are familiar around the world, in Japan they are known as zaibatsu and in Korea as chaebol. Skyworth was one of them and was amazed at the speed with which it was able to repurpose itself to produce electric vehicles. Initial exploration began in 2015, and the first-born, the Skywell ET5 crossover (Skyworth EV6 in its home market) hit the line as early as autumn 2020.

Following this, the company began to conquer car markets around the world and today SKYWELL ET5 can be found in 42 countries, but under different names. In Germany the electric car is known as Elaris Beo, in the USA – as Imperium SEV. The company’s goals are truly grandiose and go beyond the bold expectations of even well-known car brands that have been at the top of automotive Olympus for decades. By 2030, Skyworth intends to sell at least one million electric cars per year worldwide.

Classical forms of the new age

The design of SKYWELL ET5 was developed by a famous car designer, who invented the appearance of Mercedes-Benz and Porsche. He refused from deliberate epatage, pretentious details and kitsch, the appearance of electric car ET5 turned out to be calm, but solid, reliable and trustworthy. Thanks to this, the crossover has gained popularity among buyers of different target audience.
