The Chinese auto giant Dongfeng started creating a turned copy of the popular French cross. Images of the new items have already appeared on the Web: the first pictures of the new model were placed in the database of the Chinese Ministry of Industry.

Dongfeng is preparing to launch its version of the Renault Kwid. Interestingly, the Chinese brand turned its attention not to the classic SUV, but to its electric version with the K-ZE prefix. Such a “green” Kwid debuted at the April Xinghai Motor Show. Recall, Renault-Nissan and Dongfeng have a joint venture in China. According to local media, the new electric crossover for export will be produced under the brand name Dongfeng. In the home market, the novelty will be wearing the Venucia logo.

Kwid is based on the Renault-Nissan CMF-A platform. Its Chinese “analog” will differ somewhat from the “donor” model. The Dongfeng electric car will get a completely different front part: new bumpers, original optics, a cap and the Dongfeng logo instead of the traditional grille with the Renault brand logo, as well as a charging connector, which the manufacturer prudently “hid”.

On the power of the power plant, which will equip the new product, while not reported. According to the developers, on one charge the new electric car will be able to drive about 450 kilometers. Price lists are also kept secret. However, it is already known that the Chinese copy of the Renault Kwid will receive a more affordable price tag than the original. The Dongfeng and Venucia electric cars will appear on the market by the end of this year.
