The Chinese company Dongfeng presented its new SUV brand Mengshi (Warrior) at the Chengdu Motor Show. The first carriers of the brand were the M-Terrain SUV and M-Terrain S models: they are built on the MORA platform and are equipped with impressive power plants. So, the power of the purely electric version is 1070 hp. For comparison, the Tesla Cybertruck should receive an 800 hp power plant.

Dongfeng Mengshi look not as futuristic as the Cybertruck, but for some, their more familiar design will be a plus. At the same time, the cars look deliberately brutal, more interesting than some Jeep Wrangler Rubicon.

The design hints at outstanding off-road capability, and the Mengshi really has something to offer off-road explorers. These cars will use intelligent off-road technology M ATS with nine driving modes. If necessary, the air suspension will increase the ground clearance by 105 mm. And there will also be three electric differential locks – just like in real SUVs!

The MORA platform, on which the cars are built, carries a lot of interesting things. Firstly, it allows you to create cars with different body types – a pickup truck, an all-terrain wagon, a minivan, etc. Secondly, the platform is designed for both the creation of pure electric vehicles and hybrids. Finally, like a Formula 1 car, it uses steer-by-wire technology, that is, without a physical connection between the steering wheel and the wheels. Due to this, it turned out to make the chassis almost fully controllable – the rear wheels can be rotated to reduce the turning radius, and due to this, the diagonal movement mode (“crab gait”) is implemented.

M-Terrain SUV is made in a body typical for an SUV. It is expected that the length of the car will be 5.2 meters. M-Terrain S is not a “coupe version” of the older model, as it might seem, but a pickup truck. Of course, in this version, there is little sense from the cargo platform, but, probably, the production model will be more practical.

Dongfeng has not yet disclosed the characteristics of Mengshi, but earlier the parameters of these cars were lit up in the database of the local regulator. From the list of parameters it follows that a purely electric version will receive a power plant with a capacity of 1070 hp. and a traction battery with a capacity of 140 kWh, it will provide a power reserve of 500 km. Hybrid version – with a power plant with a capacity of 600 hp, a traction battery with a capacity of 65.88 kWh and a cruising range of 800 km. The maximum speed will be 180 km/h. The most powerful version will accelerate to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds.

The production Mengshi M-Terrain will go on sale in China in 2023. Dongfeng expects to sell 4,000 vehicles a month, but prices have not yet been made public.
