The Voyah Free electric crossover is just settling in the Russian market, but the list of modifications is expanding for the second time. First, as an alternative to a fully electric power plant, an EVR version with a gasoline “stroke extension” appeared (a 1.5 turbo engine is not connected to the wheels and is used to recharge the battery), and now the EVR Long Range version has entered the market, that is, this is the second “extension” of an autonomous move.
If an electric vehicle can travel 500 km in a WLTP cycle, and an EVR series hybrid 674 km, then the Long Range version promises immediately 800 km without recharging / refueling, while the range in all-electric mode has increased from 110 to 171 km (compared to conventional EVR).
This was achieved not only due to the lithium-ion traction battery increased from 33 to 39 kWh, but also due to more economical electric motors. If for EVR they give out a total of 510 kW (693 hp) and 1040 Nm, then for the EVR Long Range the output was reduced to 360 kW (489 hp) and 720 Nm, resulting in the passport acceleration time to “hundreds” increased from 4.5 to 4.8 s (for an electric car – 4.7 s). The parameters of the gasoline engine (108 hp, 192 Nm) remained unchanged. Top speed is still limited to 200 km/h.
The installation of a larger battery did not affect the volume of the trunk – it is the same 400 liters for the EVR Long Range as for the other hybrid version. And the curb weight, despite the increased battery, even decreased from 2290 kg to 2280. Externally, the new version can be distinguished only thanks to the partial suede trim of the seats (for other Voyah Free they are completely “leather”), the curtain on the panoramic roof (in EVR, instead of a curtain, electrochromic glass , which is available as an option for the Long Range version) and illuminated rear door sills. Also, the night vision system disappeared from the list of standard equipment.
At a price, the new version turned out to be immediately half a million more expensive than the usual EVR: 7,790,000 rubles. However, a fully electric modification costs another 200 thousand more and can only please with a more spacious trunk (560 l + 72 l under the front cover).
