On January 29th, Chery’s high-end brand Exeed launched its latest model, the Exeed Zhuifeng, known internationally as the Exeed LX C-DM, with three variants entering the market.

A notable feature of the LX C-DM is its new 1.5T C-DM plug-in hybrid system, which offers improvements over the previous PHEV’s 1.5TCI-DHT plug-in hybrid system. The new system boasts quicker charging times, higher efficiency, and better fuel economy, delivering a combined power output of 326 horsepower (239 kW). It has an electric-only range of 80 km and a total range of 1,000 km. The petrol-powered Exeed LX included a 2-liter four-cylinder for 262 horsepower (192 kW).

As part of the launch, Exeed offers buyers a package of benefits, including warranty, emergency services, data, and charging privileges.

In terms of design, the new model retains a fairly similar appearance of the PHEV variant, featuring a front end with four LED lights and a black trim strip that broadens the visual width of the vehicle. The front fascia includes large criss-crossed air vents, silver trim, and side ducts, contributing to a sporty look. The vehicle’s profile is rounded and equipped with large two-tone wheels, while the rear features full-width tail lights and dual square exhaust tips, alongside diffusers and a spoiler to enhance the sporty aesthetic. Furthermore, the front-end design of the Exeed LX C-DM follows the styling of the top-trim petrol-powered with a frameless grille. The dimensions are 4538 mm in length, 1848 mm in width, and 1699 mm high, with a wheelbase of 2670 mm.

The Exeed LX C-DM is a small part of Chery’s New Energy Strategy. Last year, Chery Group announced a comprehensive transition to NEVs. This year the company hopes to see a significant increase in sales of its NEV line up.
