Dongfeng eπ 007 versions and prices

Style wise it follows the sports coupe look first popularized in China for EVs by the XPeng P7, although the Dongfeng eπ 007 is actually a five door hatchback. The front face has a very simple design, and uses a split headlight cluster design. From the side the sleek lines that help give the car a 0.209Cd drag coefficient are apparent. The top of the line version has an electric rear spoiler which will be an option on other versions. Size wise the Dongfeng eπ 007 measures in at 4880mm/1895mm/1460 mm (l/w/h) with a wheelbase of 2915 mm.

The two standard colors are night shadow black and dawn white, there are an additional five cost option colors. The AWD Max version comes with 19-inch performance wheels, red brake calipers and Continental tires, all other versions of the Dongfeng eπ 007 get 18-inch low drag wheels.

Buyers can opt for scissor doors on the 620 Pro and 540 AWD Max versions. A cost option they are equipped with dual ultrasonic radar active obstacle avoidance and anti-pinch functions.

Inside the car has an 8.8-inch LCD instrument cluster and 15.6-inch central display screen. Behind the SOA intelligent cockpit with 38 service modules is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8155 chip. There are a total of 123 interfaces and over 300 custom scenes.

Equipment includes a 20-speaker audio system, 64-color ambient lighting, 50W wireless charging for mobile phones, gesture recognition, electric 6-way adjustment of the main driver’s seat + memory/welcome, electric 4-way adjustment of the passenger seat, ventilation/heating of the front seat, etc.

All versions of the car get assisted driving functions which includes forward collision warning, AEB automatic emergency braking, traffic sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assistance, lane merging assist, blind spot monitoring, lane change warning, rear traffic crossing braking, panoramic image, transparent chassis, etc. Higher spec versions gain NOA high-speed navigation assistance driving software subscription service, and LAPA over-the-horizon memory parking software subscription service. These utilize the 31 sensors on higher spec versions which consist of 8 high-definition cameras, 4 surround-view cameras, 12 ultrasonic radars, 5 millimeter-wave radars, 1 intelligent driving domain controller, and a high-precision positioning unit.

Range extended versions of the  Dongfeng eπ 007 use a 1.5 liter engine as a generator. The rear 160kW electric motor has a peak torque of 310 Nm. This version comes with a 28.39 kWh lithium iron phosphate battery which is good for 200 km CLTC electric range with a total range of 1200 km. Acceleration time is 7.2 seconds.

With the all-electric versions the 530 Pro used the same 160 kW motor as the EREV but this time with a 56.83 kWh lithium iron phosphate battery. The 530 in the model’s name is the CLTC range and the acceleration time is 6.8 seconds. Unsurprisingly the 620 Pro gets a 620 km range out of a 70.26 kWh lithium iron phosphate battery. Thanks though to a more powerful 200 kW electric motor with 320 Nm of torque, acceleration time is reduced to 5.8 seconds. Finally the AWD 540 Max uses the same battery as the 620 Pro but doubles up on the 200 kW motors giving a 3.9 second acceleration time. Interestingly the car comes not only with V2V and V2L but also V2G discharging.

is a new NEV brand under Dongfeng Aeolus launched last year in April at the Shanghai Auto Show. The eπ 007 is the first car to go on sale in what is meant to be a premium brand but presumably positioned below Dongfeng’s Voyah range.
