The all-new Skywell BE11 was officially unveiled to the British public today (May 28th, 2024)  at the Everything Electric Show in Harrogate by broadcaster and EV expert Rob Llewellyn.

Distributed in the UK by Innovation Automotive, the Skywell brand was formed in 2017 by Skyworth and the Nanjing Golden Dragon Bus Company.

The exterior design is characterised by the ‘razor’ LED headlights, sharp contours and chrome accents, while the durable black skirting provides an effective shield against stone-chips and scratches.

The Skywell BE11 will be available to pre-order through the Innovation Automotive website ( from August 2024, with the first models arriving into IA’s growing dealer network in September. 

On board is a 12.8” touchscreen display featuring Wireless Apple CarPlay, Wireless AndroidAuto, a DAB radio, 3 USB ports and a Metz sound system with 8 speakers, engineered in Germany.

All models are powered by a spritely 204PS/320Nm motor which propels the BE11 to 62mph in just 9.6 seconds, and there are options of either a 72kWh or 86kWh lithium-ion battery which provide practical ranges of 248 and 304 miles respectively (WLTP – Combined).

Prices are yet to be announced but promise to be ‘extremely competitive’ and all models are backed by a 7-year vehicle warranty and an 8-year, 155,000 warranty for the battery
