's premium new energy vehicle (NEV) brand Denza has unveiled the interior design of the Denza N8, as it ramps up its preview of the new SUV.

Images posted by Denza on Weibo today show the N8 with a large glass roof, a large center screen and rear tabletops.

In China's increasingly competitive electric vehicle (EV) market, automakers are racing to offer features that will provide consumers with more convenience in their driving experience.

Denza was formed in February 2011 as a joint venture between BYD and Daimler, each holding a 50 percent stake, and Daimler was rebranded as Mercedes-Benz in February 2022.

BYD's stake in Denza increased to 90 percent last year, and Mercedes-Benz's stake decreased to 10 percent.

Denza is currently offering only the D9, an MPV that went on sale in August 2022 and began deliveries in October last year.

The N8 will be the third model in the rebranded Denza, with the second model, the N7, to be released in the first half of this year. The release date for the N8 has not yet been announced.

On March 29, Denza unveiled the exterior of the N8, which will carry over much of the design of the discontinued Denza X.

On April 11, the Denza N8 appeared in a catalog of models that will soon be allowed to be sold in China, published by the Chinese industry regulator.

The Denza N8 entered the catalog in four versions, including a single-motor all-electric version, a two-motor all-electric version, a DM-i plug-in hybrid version, and a DM-p plug-in hybrid version.

The single-motor version is equipped with a 230-kW peak power motor, and the dual-motor version has 230-kW and 200-kW peak power front and rear motors, respectively.

The model's length, width and height are 4,949 mm, 1,950 mm and 1,725 mm, respectively, with a wheelbase of 2,830 mm, according to the filing.

Denza delivered 10,526 vehicles in April, up 1.23 percent from 10,398 in March.

Denza has a chance to see monthly sales of more than 20,000 units this year, said Zhao Changjiang, general manager of the company's sales division, on Weibo on May 7.

Denza's new SUV model N7, which is on pre-sale, is expected to receive more than 6,000 new orders this month and is expected to reach 30,000 orders before its official launch, Zhao said.
