Denza High-End MPV to Feature EV Dual Power Mode

Zhao Changjiang, general manager of Denza’s sales department, said on Monday morning that the firm’s high-end MPV will feature DM and EV dual power modes, while the DM super hybrid will be able to drive for 1000km. The model will also feature other driving modes, including economical, normal, sport and snow.

The vehicle is also supported by super-hybrid technology with an ultra-high thermal efficiency engine and an EHS electric hybrid system. As compared to the extended hybrid, it has an additional form of direct engine drive and the super hybrid 4WD system delivers a combined torque of over 600Nm.

Furthermore, the innovative EV design boosts voltage with inductive motors, and the smart thermal management system of the battery provides a heat pump temperature ranging from -30 to 60ºC, addressing the severe problem of ensuring EV range in the winter.
