Voyah's first sedan is 5,088 mm long and features dual electric motors with peak power of 160 kW and 215 kW at the front and rear, respectively.
It's no secret that Dongfeng Motor's premium electric vehicle (EV) arm, Voyah, is building its first sedan, and now a regulatory filing has revealed the model's core specifications.
China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) on Thursday released its latest catalog of models that will be allowed to be sold in China for public comment, and a sedan model from Voyah is included.
The Chinese public can submit feedback on the catalog between October 14-20. Entry into the catalog is the last major regulatory process for a model to be allowed to be sold in China.
Voyah's sedan comes in two product models -- EQ7001AL1F2BEV and EQ7000AL1F2BEV -- both of which are pure electric vehicles, the main difference being that the former has a white body and the latter is blue.
Voyah's internal code name for the sedan is H53 to commemorate Dongfeng Motor's 53rd anniversary. The actual name of the model is "追光" (literally, "chasing light"), according to the filing.
The sedan is 5,088 mm long, 1,970 mm wide and has a wheelbase of 3,000 mm. Its height includes two specifications of 1,515 mm as well as 1,505 mm, probably because the optional configuration may allow the height to vary.
Both versions entering the MIIT catalog are equipped with dual electric motors, with peak power of 160 kW and 215 kW at the front and rear, respectively. The model has a top speed of 205 km/h.
The EQ7001AL1F2BEV weighs 2,286 kg and is powered by a ternary lithium battery supplied by CATL. The other version weighs 2,641 kg and is powered by a ternary lithium battery supplied by Farasis Energy. Information on the capacity of the battery pack is unknown.
Both models can be equipped with an optional electric rear wing, an option that seems to be gaining popularity, as NIO also applied for a patent for an electric rear wing.
