Voyah Zhuigang, the all-electric sedan with semi-solid batteries

Voyah unveils its third electric car, a sedan called Zhuigang

The Chinese brand Voyah, created at the end of 2020 and belonging to the powerful Dongfeng Motor Corporation (DFM) group, has presented its third model. It is an electric sedan, which they have named Voyah Zhuigang, and which follows the previously presented models: the Voyah Free SUV and the Voyah Dreamer MPV.

Entering a new segment, this 100% electric sedan is notable for its semi-solid-state batteries, a novel technology that makes it the first manufacturer to include it, although it is expected to be fitted in other electric vehicles such as those from NIO. It offers two battery options: 82 kWh and 109 kWh, offering ranges of 580 km CLTC and 730 km CLTC, respectively.

In detail, the Voyah Zhuigang features two electric motors, providing all-wheel drive: a 160 kW front motor and a 215 kW rear motor, which together deliver a total output of 510 hp (375 kW) and 730 Nm of torque. It is capable of accelerating from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds.

It is a generously sized saloon, measuring 5.08 metres long, 1.97 metres wide and 1.5 metres high, with a wheelbase of 3 metres. First deliveries of the Voyah Zhuigang are expected to begin in the first half of 2023, with no certainty as to whether it will be marketed in Europe, although the brand plans to expand next year to countries such as Denmark, the Netherlands and Sweden.

Prices announced for the Chinese market start at 322,900 RMB (just over 43,700 euros at current exchange rates), beating its direct rival the NIO ET7 which starts from 458,000 RMB in the same market. Voyah offers a battery leasing programme similar to NIO, although Voyah does not currently offer a battery exchange service like NIO does.
