Default Dongfeng Fengguang EV

Possibly DFSK Fengguang will get a version too. Specific model name is not known.

Perhaps DFSK has a greater claim on the product than some of the other divisions of Dongfeng, because the vehicle(s) are going to be produced at the Donghuan Road facility in Maojian dt., Shiyan city, Hubei, which is one of two factories DFSK currently operates in Maojian.

Due to zoning and environmental regulations, DFSK will relocate its other factory (from Bailang Middle Road) within Maojian itself (to Shenying Industrial Park) by 2020-21, so once these hatchbacks begin to roll out, the company might consider concentrating all Shiyan-based production at the new unit.

Yes, thank you; the fact is mentioned in threads preceding the current one.

I should have placed these cross-references in the very first post, though.

MIIT reveals 271 km NEDC range for the minicar(s), made possible by a 27 kWh battery pack.

The anticipated full names of the Dongfeng models are:

In view of your previous posts about DFSK and its recent acquisition by Sokon (CCF post of 11/20/18), I am puzzled by the above reference to DFSK as a "division", of Dongfeng.

Let me add that I am aware of the 26.1% stake in Sokon, that Dongfeng recently acquired, and I would appreciate you clarification of this complex relationship.

Ownership labels aside, in the end I guess one could say that Dongfeng and Sokon are "as close as lips and teeth", to use the old proverb.

Yes, you are right. I should have said "than (some) divisions'", not "other divisions". I myself have emphasized the fact that DFSK is now a subsidiary of Sokon Industry Group in one or two other places. Perhaps my mind is still conditioned to think about Fengguang-branded vehicles as Dongfeng products (perhaps reinforced by the presence of the Dongfeng label and logo).

Thanks!

Just to show how complex it is, the eGT BBG project (i.e this car) will be produced by eGT New Energy Automotive [a 50:25:25 JV between Dongfeng Motor Group Co. Ltd.*, Renault s.a.s., and Nissan (China) Investment] under Dongfeng Motor Group Corp. ("EQ") license at a plant currently used by DFSK.

*itself owned by Dongfeng Motor Group Corporation.
