Nammi 01: Dongfeng’s new proposal for Europe

We know that Chinese groups are quick to create new automotive brands. Dongfeng, too, has just unveiled the Nammi 01, with interesting technological and aesthetic features.

A compact electric car that offers good range at a very competitive price: it reaches 430 km on the Chinese CLTC cycle and is priced from 74,800 to 104,800 yuan, equivalent to €9,700 to €13,600. Since Dongfeng recently debuted in Italy, it is not excluded that they may choose to introduce their new brand, Nammi, to our region.

However, if Dongfeng admits to bringing it to Europe, the price could rise to €26,100 or 195.000 DKK still making it one of the most affordable electric cars at the moment.

Nammi 01, modern and lively

The Nammi 01 represents the first model of the new brand dedicated to more affordable electric vehicles for the younger generation. It is based on the Dongfeng Quantum Architecture S3 platform, and the company specifies that it was designed for Europe.

The car can accommodate five people and is available in a range of vibrant colors, including yellow, white, blue, and combinations of these shades. Standard 16-inch wheels can be upgraded to 17-inch ones.

The manufacturer claims that Nammi 01 can recharge from 30% to 80% in 30 minutes using a DC charger.
