Spy photos of the new 008 first emerged earlier this month, and today, we have even more details about the vehicle, which is set to be unveiled at the upcoming Beijing Auto Show later this month. New official images of the eπ 008 have recently been released, providing a better glimpse into the design and features of this new vehicle.

The images show that the eπ 008 shares a similar design language with its predecessor, the eπ 007. However, it distinguishes itself by adopting a popular trend in automotive design—the seamless light bar that runs across the front fascia. The interior features a matrix-style lighting design, adding a futuristic feel. The hood’s lines and the front bumper’s three-stage air intake design also contribute to a more stylish appearance.

In terms of dimensions, the eπ 008 measures 5002/1972/1732 mm, with a wheelbase of 3025 mm. The vehicle’s substantial size gives it a commanding presence. It hints at a large rear passenger space, further complemented by the use of low aerodynamic drag wheels for the plug-in hybrid version and 7-spoke wheels with side-view cameras for the all-electric variant.

The rear design of the eπ 008 harmonizes with the front, featuring a seamless light bar with matrix-style lighting elements. This design language improves the vehicle’s futuristic aesthetic and provides high visibility when illuminated.

As for the interior, spy photos of the eπ 008’s cabin reveal a minimalist approach similar to the eπ 007 design. The interior has a dual-tone color scheme and is devoid of physical buttons. The steering wheel features a two-spoke, flat-bottom design, accompanied by a fully digital instrument cluster and a large central touchscreen display. The vehicle incorporates a floating console design, providing storage space beneath it, and the central armrest compartment also offers storage capacity.

In terms of powertrain options, the plug-in hybrid version of the eπ 008 will feature a combination of a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine and an electric motor, delivering a maximum power output of 108 kW and a pure electric range of 154 km. On the other hand, the all-electric variant will be equipped with a 200 kW electric motor, providing an impressive range of 636 km.

With its futuristic design, advanced technology, and diverse powertrain options, the Dongfeng eπ 008 aims to establish the eπ brand as a prominent player in the competitive premium electric vehicle segment. Automotive enthusiasts and consumers eagerly await its debut at the Beijing Auto Show, where it is expected to make a strong impression.
