New photos and details of the Lingxi L battery-electric sedan from the Dongfeng-Honda joint venture in China have emerged, revealing the car will be able to travel up to 322 miles (520 km) on the CLTC cycle.

The new car was previewed with a striking concept at the 2023 Guangzhou Motor Show and the first images of the production model surfaced in March thanks to the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

Found beneath the sharp, angular bodywork of the Lingxi L is a 59.22 kWh lithium iron phosphate battery pack. This relatively compact battery drives a single electric motor at the front axle with 215 hp (160 kW), enough to send the car to a top speed of 99 mph (160 km/h). Evidently, this isn’t an EV focused on performance but rather one that prioritizes efficiency and range.

Chinese media outlets have also published the first photos of the car’s interior. Just like the cute Honda e, the cabin of the Lingxi L is dominated by a dashboard housing not one, not two, but five screens. These consist of a digital instrument cluster, a central infotainment display, a passenger screen, and two screens for the rear-facing cameras. Dongfeng-Honda has also equipped the car with a head-up display.

Elsewhere, the cabin has what appears to be a plush headliner clad in Alcantara. This Lingxi L has also been showcased with an attractive combination of dark blue and white leather. A wireless smartphone charger is visible on the console, as is a gear lever.

Pricing details for the model haven’t been announced. Dongfeng-Honda‘s range of Chinese models will consist of 50% electrified vehicles by 2025 and from 2027, it will stop launching combustion-powered cars.
