Venucia Chenfeng EV hits the Chinese auto market

The Venucia Chenfeng e30 EV has been launched on the Chinese auto market. Price starts at 267.800 yuan and ends at 281.800 yuan ($43.600 – $46.000). The Venucia Changfeng e30 EV was formerly known as the Venucia e30. The late name-change is unexpected, all the early-production cars, which were used on various media events, had only an e30 badge on the back.

Venucia is a sub-brand of the Dongfeng-Nissan joint venture, and the Venucia Chenfeng is based on the Nissan Leaf. This makes Nissan the first automaker to launch a fully modern EV under a sub-brand in China. Other automakers, most notably Volkswagen with Kaili and BMW with Zinoro, prefer to work with outdated technology.

Power train is the same as in the Leaf: an electric motor with 110hp and 254nm. Top speed is 144km/h and range is set at 175 kilometer, whereas the latest Leaf has a range of 200 kilometer. Charging on a fast charger takes 30 minutes for 80% battery, charging on 220V takes 8 hours for a full charge. The Venucia Chenfeng EV will compete directly with the brand new Denza EV, which is manufactured by the BYD-Daimler joint venture

Not an e30, this the Chenfeng (晨风), meaning ‘Morning Breeze’.

    A rebadged Nissan Leaf, huh? I dunno, was never a fan of the design (including the Leaf) and the interior looks kinda boring.

    The E30 badge has also been attached to the mini EV in the Fengshen series.., a Smart lookalike, also due for launch this year?
