Last week, we brought you the news that the Nissan-Dongfeng joint venture will build an EV in China, that it will be ready by 2015, and that it will not be the Nissan Leaf. The Made-in-China plug-in will be offered by Nissan-Dongfeng’s “Chinese” brand, Venucia. This most likely in compliance with yet-to-be-released, but much-rumored regulations which will shower Chinese EV subsidies only on indigenous vehicles.
Barely a week after the news, there already are pictures of the future Chinese EV.
Carnewschina has pictures of EVenucia design studies that were allegedly supplied by “someone inside Venucia.” The site also opines that “the pic above clearly shows a car that loox very much like the Nissan Leaf.” Well, it does. Down to the snout in front through which the original Leaf sucks electrons.
If it is the correct picture of the EVenucia … Nothing is impossible in China.
