Representatives of the Motorinvest company announced the entry into the Russian market of a new version of the Dream minivan – fully electric. Previously, the model was offered only in a hybrid version. She has a 1.5 petrol turbo engine (129 hp) connected to the front axle only in extreme cases, and the rest of the time it is used to recharge the traction battery with a capacity of 25.6 kWh, while the wheels are rotated by two electric motors with a total peak power of 290 kW (393 hp) and 610 Nm. This scheme allows you to accelerate to “hundreds” in 6.6 seconds and drive, according to official statements, 750 km in the WLTP cycle.
The new version is devoid of a gasoline “stroke extension”. The output of the front motor has increased from 130 to 160 kW and from 300 to 310 Nm (the same for the rear), thanks to which the electric version already develops 320 kW (435 hp) and 620 Nm of torque.
The curb weight of the seven-seat version (Russian dealers do not yet have four-seat Dreams) increased from 2540 to 2625 kg, but the acceleration time to “hundreds” still decreased to 5.9 s. Top speed is still limited to 200 km/h.
Of course, the lithium-ion traction battery is much larger here: 108.7 kWh. However, the claimed range in the WLTP cycle is only 482 km.
In other words, if on a hybrid Dream it is possible – at least in theory – to get from Moscow to St. Petersburg without recharging / refueling, then on the Dream EV you will definitely have to look for a free terminal. When using “fast” DC charging, you can replenish the battery from 20 to 80% in one hour.
The list of standard options for a hybrid and electric minivan is the same: the basic equipment includes air suspension, a Dynaudio audio system with 10 speakers, a wide range of electronic assistants (including a night vision camera and adaptive cruise control with lane keeping function), a panoramic roof and much more.
So, the cost of the electric Voyah Dream in the only Executive configuration is 9,990,000 rubles. Back in February, a hybrid Dream with similar equipment cost 8.3 million rubles, but now the price tag has grown by exactly a million. The warranty for both versions is five years or 100 thousand kilometers.
