A nice concept from Dongfeng. And it was about time the boys from Wuhan got a little creative, their line up including the joint venture machines is rather boring. This one might change that, a bit. The I-Car, guess what, is a plug-in electric. Size: 2999x1670x1540. ‘2999’ has to do with a Chinese tax-law, cars under 3 meter pay less. The range of the I-Car is 60 kilometer. That is all the info Dongfeng wished to share. No plans for production in the near future.
