The vehicles will be built on a new off-roader platform developed by Dongfeng called MORV, which is designed exclusively for New Energy Vehicles - i.e. BEV, PHEV and FCEV. Technical data on the platform or the planned models is not yet known.
The new plant is being built on a 96,000-square-meter site and will include not only a complete production facility with body shop, welding, paint shop and assembly, but also a test center with off-road tracks.
According to the portal "Gasgoo", these are supposed to be "high-end off-roaders" that will be developed under the leadership of Dongfeng's "M" business unit. Dongfeng is one of the largest truck manufacturers in the world and also builds passenger cars as well as military vehicles. For passenger cars, Dongfeng operates several joint ventures, for example with Nissan, Honda, Stellantis and Kia.
