A hybrid four-door is being prepared to enter the market. This model has an original “face”; the stern has also been modified, but slightly. According to preliminary data, the total output of the new version is 530 hp, and the maximum range exceeds 1200 km.
The Voyah brand was created by the Chinese concern Dongfeng specifically for expensive electrified cars. The first-born was the Free crossover, then it was joined by the Dreamer minivan (in Russia it’s Dream), and at the end of last year the third model debuted – a sedan, which in its homeland is called Zhuiguang (aka Chasing Light), and in our country is known as Passion (before He arrived in Russia in May of this year). The four-door is currently being sold exclusively as an electric car, but the range will soon be expanded: branded images of the hybrid version have been published.

The new version has its own design. So, in front, instead of a plug, a radiator grille appeared, strewn with many elements repeating the Voyah emblem. The bumper was also retouched, and the hybrid Voyah Zhuiguang/Passion lost its pronounced “beak”. The stern has also been modified, albeit slightly: the trunk lid is divided in two by an additional light. Finally, the new version got the original wheels. Like the electric car, the hybrid has air suspension.

According to preliminary information, the dimensions have not changed: the length of the sedan is 5088 mm, width – 1970 mm, height – 1515 mm, wheelbase – 3000 mm.
The interior of the hybrid Voyah Passion has not yet been shown. Most likely, the four-door retained the display across the entire width of the front panel and a separate screen on which the climate control is displayed. But the central tunnel could well be remade in the style of the restyled Voyah Free crossover: in this case, it will feature two platforms for wireless charging of smartphones (the steering column lever will be responsible for controlling the transmission).
