Chinese electric car manufacturer Voyah is making the leap to Europe and that is another concern for European brands.
The “invasion” of new Chinese electric car manufacturers in Europe is more than obvious. Probably never before in history have we seen a new Chinese brand land in a European country every few years.
Although BYD, Xpeng, NIO and Aiways are the best known and most promising Chinese brands, this transition to the electric era is serving as a perfect window for other manufacturers such as Voyah.
A few days ago we told you in Somos Eléctricos about the brand’s third electric car, a spectacular sedan called Voyah Zhuigang whose performance surprised us all.
However, Voyah will make its debut in Europe, specifically in Norway, with the Voyah Free, a large, premium electric SUV that will leave other similar proposals from other brands in the shade. But let’s find out more about the Voyah Free. What do you think?
The Voyah Free, features and price
The Voyah Free is a generously sized SUV, with a length of 4.90 metres and a wheelbase of 2.96 metres, which offers plenty of space inside. The boot of the Voyah Free has a capacity of 560 litres and there is also a small 72-litre front luggage compartment.
The Voyah Free’s power output is 360 kW (490 hp) and 720 Nm of torque, all thanks to its two electric motors that give the vehicle all-wheel drive. It can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds and its top speed is limited to 200 km/h (124 mph).
A very important aspect of electric cars is range, and the Voyah Free does not fall short, as it has a 100 kWh battery with a useful capacity (106 kWh gross), which means that it has a range of 500 kilometres under the WLTP cycle.
Perhaps the biggest shortcoming of the Voyah Free is the maximum charging power, which is only 100 kW DC, something that perhaps seems a little short considering the generous battery it is equipped with.
The price of the Voyah Free is 78,000 euros in Norway, the first country to receive the first units for its customers, something that happened at the end of 2022 as promised by the brand.
Looking ahead to 2023, Voyah intends to continue with its European expansion, with Sweden, Denmark and the Netherlands being the next countries to arrive. There is no news about Spain, although if Voyah arrives in our territory it will probably do so at the end of its European expansion, as there are other countries where the acceptance of electric vehicles is much higher.
