Poland is restarting in the auto industry – the new car brand Izera made its first debut worldwide with two models, a compact hatchback and an SUV. The Poles have decided to start producing cars with electric cars, or the new models do not allow for the assembly of some heat engines, and production will start in 2023.
It should be noted that Poland had a developed auto industry in the 20th century, but in recent decades the country’s production lines have been bought by major automakers, leaving Poland without its own brand. This is how the new Izera brand reinvents the local automotive industry, and the name was chosen in honor of the Izera Mountains on the border between Poland and the Czech Republic.
The Izera brand is part of ElectroMobility Poland, a state-controlled company founded in 2016. The first two models in the pictures, the hatch and the SUV, do not yet have their own name and a defined technical substrate, but the Poles seem to have chosen the design of the machines and opted for an electrified technical substrate.
Most likely, however, Izera will not try to develop its own cars from the start, but will use the technologies of the major players in the world auto industry. It is not out of the question that Izera could take over Volkswagen’s MEB platform, which was developed especially for electric cars, and which the Germans offered to the brands that are part of the company, but also to those of Ford for the development of their own electric cars.
The design of the machines was developed by the Italian workshop Torino Design and the technical part belongs to the German-Swiss company EDAG Engineering. However, there is currently no information on the technical surface, but representatives from Izera promise that the hatch and the SUV can accelerate to 100 km / h in less than 8 seconds and the maximum range according to the standard will reach 400 km. WLTP. On the market, Izera will most likely compete with budget electric vehicles, such as the future models Skoda, Volkswagen, but also Renault-Nissan.
