Changan Automobile announced in early June 2022 that it was building the infrastructure for mass production of the SL03. Under the auto brand Deep Blue, the SL03 is to be immediately obtainable in China for, translated, 30,000 USD. The e-car is based on the electric drive platform EPA1 and is offered in three variations: purely electric, with range extender and with fuel cell. With hydrogen, a range of 700 km (400 mi) should be possible. However, it is not yet clear when exactly the H2 model will be available and how many of the units will be produced. Technology partners for the SL03 are CATL and Huawei.
