Voyah Free EV Entering Europe
Not so long ago, Chinese cars were barred from entering Europe due to poor built quality, low crash test score and inadequate safety features on offer. What happened next, they went back to the drawing board and within the next 5 years were able to surprise the Europeans by launching cars that attained 4-stars Euro-NCAP crash test score.
And then came the EV revolution, with all sorts of big & small scale Chinese automakers entering Europe with a flurry of quality electric vehicles, which are so good in many levels that Europeans can do nothing but to welcome them, particularly in wake of ever-evolving & stringent emission standards which even the Euro-6 compliant cars are failing to comply to.
The latest addition to the list of Chinese automakers entering Europe is Voyah, which is a high-end EV brand under the umbrella of Dongfeng Motors. Currently, its model lineup consists of only one electric SUV called Free. Voyah has recently announced that it will arrive in Norway in June 2022. The first Voyah overseas store will open in the center of Oslo, the capital of Norway. The deliveries will commence towards Q4, 2022 following which Voyah will enter other European countries with a broader product range. Keep in mind 3 Chinese automakers including Nio, BYD and Xpeng are already operating in Norway.
Voyah Free is a 7-seater full-sized electric crossover SUV that was put into production in the third quarter of 2021 for the Chinese domestic market. It was originally previewed as the Voyah iFree concept at the 2020 Beijing Auto Show in September 2020. The production version is said to have been co-designed by renowned design & engineering company Italdesign of Italy.
