Voyah, the high-end EV brand under the umbrella of Dongfeng Motors has launched the new Zhuiguang electric sedan in China. This is the third product in Voyah’s product portfolio after the Free electric SUV and Dreamer luxury electric MPV.
Previously known with its codename H53, the Zhuiguang (Chinese name – 岚图追光 / Chasing Light) sedan is priced between 322,900 yuan and 432,900 yuan ($46,310 USD to $62,100 USD).
In terms of dimensions, the electric sedan measures 5,088 mm long, 1,970 mm wide and 1,505 mm tall with a wheelbase of 3,000 mm. To put this into perspective, the 8th gen Hyundai Sonata D-segment sedan here is 4,900 mm long, 1,860 mm wide and 1,445 mm tall with a 2,840 mm wheelbase. This makes the Voyah Zhuiguang considerably larger than the Sonata we have here, in every aspect.
The vehicle boasts sharp styling with slim headlamps and tail lamps. The drag coefficient is an impressive 0.225Cd which helps towards achieving low drag and better fuel economy. There are flush door handles and an electric spoiler that can be automatically raised and lowered.
The spoiler can generate a downforce of up to 40kg. Voyah has also installed 31 high-performance sensors, 12 cameras, 5 mm-wave radars, 12 ultrasonic radars, and two high-precision positioning units in the Zhuiguang sedan.
Inside, the Voyah Zhuiguang gets three screens of 12.3 inch each, each placed together in an array. It supports gesture control and face and voice recognition. The vehicle features a 14-speaker setup, a panoramic sunroof, and heating, ventilation, and massage functions as standard for all seats. On the rear, it gets another 7-inch control screen, which can adjust the audio, heating, ventilation, ambient lighting, and other functions.
The vehicle comes equipped with dual motors & 4-wheel drive system. The front motor outputs 160kW (218 hp) of max power, while the rear motor churns out 215kW (292 hp). The combined output is 375kW (510 hp) and peak torque of 730 Nm. With this, the Voyah Zhuiguang can accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.8 second and can achieve a top speed of 210 km/h.
Voyah offers the Zhuiguang in two battery packs of 109kWh or 86kWh. It has a corresponding CLTC range of 730 km and 580 km. It also supports ultra-fast charging, with a 10-minute charging can enable a drive range of 230 km.
