first electric car in the fourth quarter of this year, aiming to impress the public with its environmentally friendly vehicles.

The S3 EV, which can accelerate from zero to 100kph in 7.2 seconds and is equipped with a 33 kilowatt-hour battery, is to be Yulon’s first production-ready sedan in its electric vehicle lineup, the firm said, without providing pricing information.

On Wednesday, Democratic Progressive Party Legislator Lin Chun-hsien (林俊憲) criticized the automaker, saying that it had failed to produce electric vehicles, despite having received government subsidies since 2011.
