Zhuiguang And Dreamer Winter Tests

The winter test has taken place in Yakeshi city, Inner Mongolia, China. This place is well-known as one of the coldest sites in China. An average temperature here is around of minus 30 °C. Here, the CCTV has organized its own winter test with a quirky name, ‘Ice and Snow Carnival’. They have tested Zhuiguang’s and Dreamer’s driving assist features, acceleration performance and vehicles’ stability of snowy roads. Now, let’s get to their results.

The Voyah Zhuiguang’s acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h on a snowy road is 6.91 seconds. As for the Dreamer, it has speeded up in 8 seconds. According to CCTV, their performance is great because of a 4WD system with some intelligent systems such as VCU, MCU, IPB, BMS. The 4WD system also helped Zhuiguang and Dreamer to pass 20% slope and split road tests. Moreover, they both have successfully passed the ESC stability control system test. Nowadays, all Voyah cars have a snow mode that optimizes traction control, chassis, energy recovery, braking force distribution, etc. It may be a reason for their high performance.

Worth mentioning that previously, the Chinese media called ‘Dongchedi’ has organized its own winter test. And the Voyah Dreamer has become a troublemaker there. It has unexpectedly stopped picking up speed and then completely stopped. As a result, Dongchedi mentioned that this vehicle isn’t ready for harsh winters. So these vehicles need further tests. We will keep an eye on them, so stay tuned!
