Spy Shots: Dongfeng working on small EV
Published on August 10, 2012 by Joey Wang
New spy shots show that Dongfeng is working on a small EV that will likely be sold under the Fenshen brand name. Chinese media reports that this vehicle seems to be based on an older EV concept that was developed by Anhui-Anchi a few years back. It is yet unclear how Dongfeng got their hands on it.
The vehicle loox very finished and ready to debut. It seems to meant as a small city car which indeed is the only electric kinda vehicle people in China might actually buy, especially whe the price can be kept as low as possible.
This is the original, the Anhui Anchi MC6320A concept. The company is since 2010 part of JAC. The MC6320A was developed in 2009. It never made it to production. Anhui Anchi was planning to power it by several small patrol engines or an electric motor. Size: 3190 x 1670 x 1610 and weight was 830kg.
