Denza starts N7 deliveries and launches hybrid SUV in China

Denza, BYD’s Chinese joint venture with Mercedes-Benz, has started deliveries of its new all-electric model N7 in China. The electric SUV is intended to compete with the Tesla Model Y.

The Denza N7 starts at 301,800 yuan, equivalent to around 38,200 euros. It is thus more expensive than the Model Y in China, which starts there at 263,900 yuan (approx. 33,400 euros). Nevertheless, Denza allegedly received 11,687 firm orders in the first 24 hours after the launch.

It is the brand’s first electric SUV. It is a five-seater, measuring 4.8 metres in length and 1.9 Metres in height. The width and wheelbase are 1.6 and 2.9 metres, respectively. It is fitted with LFP batteries from BYD.

In addition, Denza launched another SUV with the N8. It will be available as a six- or a seven-seater and is currently only offered as a plug-in hybrid. The PHEVs sell from 319,800 yuan for the seven- and 326,800 yuan for the six-seater. That is the equivalent of 40,400 and 41,390 euros.

The car measures 4.95 x 1.95 x 1.73 metres in length, width, and height and has a wheelbase of 2.8 metres. It is powered by two electric motors with a combined power of 360 kW. The battery has a capacity of 45.8 kWh, allowing for an all-electric range of 216 kilometres (NEDC). (N7), (N8)
