This is the Dongfeng Xiaokang Fengguang 360 EV, a new electric car for China based on the Dongfeng Xiaokang Fengguang 360 mini MPV. Dongfeng did some effort to make the 360 EV look like an EV; they closed the grille and added a blue line. Well, not much effort, but still more than Changan did with their electric MPV.
The petrol powered Xiaokang Fengguang 360. Price starts at 57.900 and ends at 74.900 yuan. Engines: a rather interesting 1.3 turbo diesel with 78hp, and a 1.5 petrol with 113hp.
Name talk: Xiaokang is a division of Dongfeng Motors. They used to make commercial vehicles only but they are now moving into passenger cars. Fengguang is the name of a series of small and mini MPVs.
The 360 EV will be powered by a surprisingly strong electric motor with an output of 190 horsepower, and that is by far the most powerful motor we have seen in this segment. The motor is manufactured by a company called Chongqing Ruichi Automobile Industry Corporation, also known as D1EV. Happily, we know the engine’s factory designation: TZ250XSRC2. Top speed will be 120 kilometer per hour.
The 360 EV will debut on the Guangzhou Auto Show in November and launch on the Chinese car market in Q1 2017.
