G Motors, the authorized distributor of Skywell electric vehicles in Nepal, has launched its first luxury electric SUV in the Nepali market.

Skywell was one of the first batch of new energy vehicle manufacturers in China, becoming the first Chinese manufacturers to obtain EU product certification.

Skywell ET5 marks the first entry of the brand in the Nepali market. It is the first electric vehicle in Nepal with a whopping 620 KM NEDC (or 520KM WLTP) range as per the company’s claim!

Addressing the C-NCAP Safety Rating Confusion

There has been some confusion regarding its safety ratings, as the C-NCAP site shows a 1-star rating, while the company claims a 5-star rating.

To address this confusion, we reach out to the Skywell representatives, Mr. Thomas Zhu – Skywell New Energy Vehicles Group and Mr. Kailash Babu Gelal – G. Motors.

We understand that safety is important for all vehicles. While the older iteration had a 1-star rating which was tested in 2022, we have worked tirelessly to improve the safety of the driver and passengers in the newer 2023-2024 Skywell ET5 that adheres to the 5-star CNAP Safety Rating.

Skywell vehicles are exported globally. So, we pride ourselves on putting safety above all, whether it is meeting the strictest EU Certifications or C-NCAP Safety Ratings.

– Skywell Representatives

In July 2023, the China-New Car Assessment Program (C-NCAP) carried out a series of crash tests, under the guidance of the China Automotive Research and Technology Center, on the Skywell ET5 to determine the safety and resiliency of vehicles in crash situations.

According to the released statement, the 2023 Skywell ET5 achieved good results in safety assessments, securing four perfect scores and two near-perfect ones.

The comprehensive data reveals impressive figures: an ADAS total score of 47.423 out of 48, resulting in a remarkable scoring rate of 98.97%, and a score of 13.764 in the side pillar impact test.

Expert analysis confirms that these results in the C-NCAP test equate to a 5-star Safety Rating as stated in the Skywell Panama and Skywell Turkey.

Considering the presence of Skywell ET5 in those countries, the information does seem to have credible backing. However, we cannot verify it in-depthly as this information is not available on the C-NCAP official website.

To reiterate, the 2022 and older versions of the Skywell ET5 received a 1-star rating. However, the 2023 and newer Skywell ET5 models have received a 5-star safety rating according to the company.

With that said, let’s take a quick look at the Skywell ET5 in Nepal and its specifications for 2024.

While we have gained some clarity on its C-NCAP safety ratings, there still remains a challenge for Skywell in the Nepali market.

Priced at Rs. 1.09 Crore, the Skywell ET5 must work to inspire confidence in the brand, particularly given the presence of numerous well-established EV and ICE brands within the same or less budget range.
