The Venucia e30 EV will be launched on the China car market in September and that is much earlier than previously expected. Venucia is a sub-brand of the Dongfeng-Nissan joint venture, and the Venucia e30 is based on the Nissan Leaf. The e30 debuted as the ‘Venucia E-Concept’ on the 2012 Beijing Auto Show and re-appeared as the Venucia e30 on the Shanghai Auto Show in April last year.
The e30 comes with a redesigned front and grille but is otherwise exactly a Leaf. Power train is the same as well: and electric motor with 110hp and 280nm. Top speed is 144km/h and range is currently set at 180 kilometer, whereas the latest Leaf had a range of 200 kilometer. Price will start around 400.000 yuan but green-car subsidies of central and local governments can bring that down to about 355.000 yuan.
