These SUVs recently listed are worthy of attention, led by Yuan PLUS.

The soaring oil price has once again attracted everyone’s attention. In many places, the unit price of 92# gasoline has exceeded 8 yuan/liter, and the voice of "can’t afford to add oil" is getting higher and higher. As an SUV owner, looking at the comprehensive fuel consumption of 100 kilometers up from 10 liters on the meter, the idea of starting a new energy vehicle has become stronger and stronger. Recently, four new energy SUVs have attracted my attention, hoping to give some reference to friends who also want to start new energy vehicles.

Byd yuan PLUS

BYD’s achievements in the field of new energy are obvious to all, and the explosive models launched are also continuous. BYD Yuan PLUS, which attracted widespread attention last year when it carried out preheating publicity. Different from the other derivative models of BYD Yuan Series, Yuan PLUS’s body size has been fully upgraded, with the length, width and height reaching 4455x1875x1615mm and the wheelbase of 2720mm respectively, and the vehicle positioning has also been upgraded to a compact SUV.

The appearance of yuanplus adopts BYD’s latest family-style appearance, which is more recognizable, and the rear of the car adopts penetrating taillights to enhance the layering and fashion sense of the rear. The design language of the interior is refreshing. The inspiration for the shape of the air outlet and the shape of the handrails on both sides of the door is said to come from musical instruments, but for users of different ages, the acceptance may be different. In terms of power and endurance, which everyone is most concerned about, YuanPlus is equipped with a motor with a maximum power of 150kW, and lithium iron phosphate batteries with capacities of 49.92 kWh and 60.48 kWh, respectively. The cruising range under CLTC conditions is 430km and 510km, respectively, and the subsidized guiding price is 13.18-159,800 yuan. From the point of view of price and positioning, BYD Yuan PLUS will become a competitor of Guangzhou Automobile Ai ‘an Y, Nezha U and Tucki G3.

Bound M5

Wenjie M5 is a brand-new product jointly built by Huawei and Jin Kang Celeste. The new car adopts extended-range power, and the fuel-electric driving mode makes it no longer have mileage anxiety. As the first vehicle equipped with Huawei HarmonyOS in-vehicle system, users have high expectations for the performance of the in-vehicle system. Wenjie M5 uses a 1.5T four-cylinder engine as the range extender, and its power configuration has three versions: 272 horsepower, 428 horsepower and 496 horsepower. Except for the entry-level version, it is a rear-drive model, and the others are all four-wheel drive models. All models are equipped with a ternary lithium battery pack with a capacity of 40 degrees, and support 0.75 hours of fast charging.

The Wujie M5 is positioned in a medium-sized SUV, and there are not many bright spots in the design. The design language is particularly concise, with the dimensions of length, width and height of 4770x1930x1625mm and the wheelbase of 2880mm, respectively. The interior space of the car is considered medium in its class. At present, there are not many extended-range power models on the market. Li ONE is the best seller at present, and its six-seat large space is one of its biggest selling points. The second is Lantu FREE. The price of the M5 in the world is 24.98-31.98 million yuan, which overlaps with the positioning of the first two. It is not easy to break through the tight encirclement, but with the technical blessing of Huawei, everything is still unknown.


The listing of Mocha DHT-PHEV means that hybrid power will become the development focus of Great Wall Motor in the new energy field in the future. The appearance of Moka DHT-PHEV is very close to that of the fuel version, and the dimensional parameters are basically the same, with the length, width and height of 4875x1960x1690mm and the wheelbase of 2915mm respectively.

The biggest highlight of this new car is the powertrain. Moka DHT-PHEV is equipped with a 1.5T engine, which adopts special technologies such as Miller cycle and high-temperature VGT pressurization, which can effectively improve engine efficiency. There are two models on the market this time, two-wheel drive with 130kW motor and front and rear dual-motor four-wheel drive with a total power of 265kW, which are matched with 2-speed DHT (special gearbox for hybrid power). It is said that the comprehensive fuel consumption under WLTC is as low as 1L/100km, and the price is 295,000 yuan and 315,000 yuan respectively. Compared with the fuel version, the pricing is greatly increased, and the fuel version of Mocha is cold in the market. Wei Jianjun blames the poor marketing. Whether it can make a breakthrough in the plug-in hybrid vehicle with a comprehensive upgrade of power and fuel consumption is still very exciting.

Xing tu Zhu feng ET-i

Chery has also begun to catch up in the field of hybrid power. In January this year, it launched the Tiggo 8PLUS Kunpeng e+, which is the first new car equipped with plug-in hybrid power in Chery SUV series. The high-end brand Xingtu also launched the Chasing Wind ET-i equipped with the same powertrain. It is expected that this powertrain will be carried to more models under Chery. Compared with the fuel version, the appearance of Star Road Chasing Wind ET-i has hardly changed. The design language is simple and fashionable, and the body lines are tough, which is in line with its own positioning.

The powertrain of Star Road Chasing Wind ET-i consists of a 1.5T engine and a motor with a total power of 125kW. The comprehensive power of the system reaches 240kW, and the comprehensive torque reaches 510Nm, with excellent performance in power parameters. It is matched with a 3-speed DHT (special gearbox for hybrid power). At the same time, the car is equipped with a ternary lithium battery pack of 19.27kWh, and the cruising range under NEDC working conditions is 105km. The official claims that the fuel consumption is only 4.8L/100km, and the comprehensive fuel consumption is as low as 1.0L/100km. The guide price of ET-i is only 14.98-15.98 million yuan, which looks very attractive.

2022 is destined to be a year of sustained and rapid growth of new energy. The above four SUVs cover three mainstream powertrain forms in the field of new energy vehicles: pure electric, extended range and plug-in hybrid power. Which model do you think has the best chance to become an explosion? Welcome to express your opinion in the comments. (Text/Yu Feng)
