The Chinese-manufactured Denza is the first all-electric vehicle introduced to the Chinese market. It was presented at Auto Show China 2014 in Beijing. 

The Denza’s battery is designed to be chargeable through domestic outlets, public charging centers as well as dedicated charging boxes provided by the manufacturer. Charging speeds can range from less than an hour up to seven hours depending on the type of charger opted for. Charging can be monitored via an accompanying smartphone app, which also provides the vehicle’s location.

The Denza has an 86 KiloWatt, 213 pounds-feet electric motor that offers a driving range of 300 km between charges and a top speed of 150 km/h.

The five-passenger Denza comes in two style packages, namely ‘Lifestyle’—including light alloy wheels, a leather interior and 8-inch touchscreen—and ‘Executive’—including satellite navigation, adaptive lighting and a Harman-Kardon sound system.
