In April this year, Dongfeng released its “1258” new energy transformation strategy. “2” means Dongfeng Aeolus will continue to invest in hybrid and pure electric vehicles. “8” refers to the launch of at least 8 new energy vehicles in the next three years. Aeolus Haohan is the first model under this plan, and it is also the first model based on Dongfeng’s DSMA 2.0 platform, focusing on the younger customer groups.

Overall, Aeolus Haohan looks sporty. The slender headlights and the inverted trapezoidal grille embellished with a starry matrix design in the front face make the car highly recognizable. In addition, the bottom is equipped with triangular decorative lights on both sides, adding a sense of novelty.

As a compact SUV, the size of Aeolus Haohan is 4653/1886/1730mm, with a 2738mm wheelbase. From the side, the blackened roof trends slightly downward and creates a suspended roof effect. The popular hidden door handles are also present.
