Overview

Sehol A5 (JAC Jiayue A5) rear

The then-called JAC Jiayue A5 was revealed on 5 September 2019 at the Chengdu Auto Show and went on sale on 20 November 2019.[2] It is the first vehicle under the Jiayue sub-brand.

The Sehol A5, originally code named JAC A432, was designed at the JAC Design Center in Turin, Italy. The exterior was designed by Daniele Gaglione, formerly at Alfa Romeo, while the interior was designed by Giancarlo Concilio, formerly at Lancia and Maserati.[3][4]

In 2021, the JAC Jiayue A5 was renamed the Sehol A5.

Specifications

The A5 is powered by a 1.5 liter turbo engine, mated to 6-speed manual and CVT gearboxes. The A5 interior features include a 7-inch digital instrument cluster, a 10.4 inch touchscreen, and 64-color ambient lighting.[5] The price range is RMB 84,800-115,800 (12,661–17,289 in USD).[6]

JAC iC5/JAC E J7/Sehol E50A (electric variant)

The JAC iC5 is the all-electric version of the Jiayue A5. It debuted at Auto Guangzhou in November 2019 as the "A5 EV" and was available for pre-order from February 2020 before going on sale in April 2020 as the iC5.[7][8]

On 28 June 2021, JAC's Mexican division announced the iC5's arrival for late 2021 to expand JAC's line of electric cars sold in that market, and will be sold as the E J7[9]

The Sehol E50A or previously the Sol E50A is the rebadged version of the iC5. The E50A is equipped with a 193 hp and 340N·m electric motor. The battery is a 64.5kWh battery with a range of 530 km rated by NEDC.[1]
