The company is run by industry veterans, led by its president, Mr. Monek Calimbahin. Taking full advantage of the incentives of the Comprehensive Roadmap for the Electric Vehicle Industry of the Electric Vehicle Industry Development Act, the newly created company will offer sales, spare parts, and maintenance and repair services by mechanics trained by Dongfeng Motors Corp. to work specifically on electric vehicles. The company will open its flagship 3-S dealership along Marcos Highway in Cainta, Rizal, in September this year, followed by another facility along Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City. Other strategic locations in the NCR, as well as in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, are also in the pipeline.

The complete lineup from Dongfeng EV is composed of a pickup truck, vans, small trucks, and light-duty trucks, all conveniently weighing below the minimum gross weight for vehicles covered by the truck ban.

Based on the Nissan Navara, the RICH 6 EV pickup (P 2.76 million) produces an output of 120kW/161hp and 420Nm of torque, with a range of 350 km.

The EC36 8-seater passenger van (P 1.78 million) produces 60kW/80hp and has a range of 300 km. This van is ideal for airport-to-hotel shuttle services and similar operations. Perfect for last-mile deliveries, the EV30 panel van (P 1.9 million) has an output of 70kw/94hp and 230N-m of torque.

For businesses looking for light-duty trucks, the EC31 (P 1.68 million) produces 60 kW/80hp and 200Nm of torque, has a strengthened chassis, and has a range of 300 km. The medium-sized cab and chassis is the EV35 (P 2.475 million), which can carry a payload of up to 1,650kg and has a range of 280 km. It produces 100kW/134hp and 230 Nm of torque. The larger of the trucks is the EV45 (P 3.35 million), which can carry a payload of 2,200kg. It produces 120kW/161hp and 320Nm of torque and has a range of 350 km. It has keyless entry, power windows, and an LCD instrument cluster display. These cabs and chassis can be configured with an aluminum box or other body applications by local partner builders.

Similar to other fully electric vehicles, the batteries of Dongfeng’s commercial EVs can be recharged using a portable AC or DC charging system. When plugged into a 220V outlet, the AC system has an output of 3.3kW, while the DC system can produce 6.6kW. Likewise, the vehicles can also be recharged with mall-based wall chargers using appropriate adaptors.

The Diamond Auto Group EV Corporation will hold its official brand launch at the 10th Philippine Electric Vehicle Summit slated for October 20–21, 2023, at the SMX Convention Center.

2024 Dongfeng Rich 6 EV pickup is yours for PHP 2.760M

All-electric Rich 6 EV is a double cab pickup from Dongfeng Commercial EV PH

Yesterday, Diamond Auto Group EV Corporation announced they are the official importer and distributor of Dongfeng Commercial EVs in the Philippines. To show the motoring public they are indeed ready to serve up fully-electric commercial vehicles, the company revealed its initial offering.

Their lineup consists of panel vans, light-duty cab & chassis trucks, cargo vans, as well as a passenger van. But if there’s one vehicle that immediately stood out from the rest, it’s the electric pickup truck called the Rich 6.

While there’s a version that exists with an internal combustion engine (ICE) under the hood, Dongfeng decided to only bring the electric version aptly named Rich 6 EV. Immediately, some of you might have noticed that it looks somewhat similar to the Nissan Navara. It is in fact based on the third-generation Navara albeit with a differently-styled front end and a redesigned interior. But what else can we expect from the all-electric pickup truck?

Let’s start with the most obvious first, its electric hardware. A single permanent magnet synchronous motor drives the rear wheels of the Rich 6 EV. It makes 163 PS with 420 Nm of torque and is powered by a lithium-ion phosphate battery that’s rated at 60.16 kWh. On a full charge, Dongfeng says it can travel an estimated 350 km.

When it comes to recharging its battery, the system accepts both AC and DC charging methods. With a portable AC charger (3.3 kW), the automaker claims it can recharge from 0 to 100% in 12 hours. With a DC charger (6.6 kW), it can recharge itself from 0 – 100 % in only 3 hours.

Size-wise, the Rich 6 EV measures 5290mm long, 1820mm wide, 1790mm tall, and has a 3150mm wheelbase. It has a curb weight of 1970 kg and a gross vehicle weight of 3200 kg. This gives the Rich 6 EV a payload capacity of 1,230 kg which is impressive despite already weighing nearly 2,000 kg. Suspension-wise, it has a double wishbone at the front, and a leaf spring rear to help it carry heavy loads with ease.

When it comes to interior amenities, the electric pickup has plenty despite its utilitarian nature. It has leather seats, a digital instrument panel, a 10.25-inch touchscreen, automatic climate control, Zero Gravity seats derived from Nissan, push-button start, an electronic parking brake, a tire pressure monitoring system, cruise control, Eco/Sport modes, and a rotary-style gear selector.

When it comes to safety features, the Rich 6 EV comes with dual front airbags, traction control, vehicle dynamic control, brake assist, rear parking sensors, and a reverse camera.

For peace of mind, the Rich 6 EV (as well as the other electric vehicles) is covered by a 3-year or 100,000 km bumper-to-bumper warranty. The battery itself also has a separate warranty that is good for 5 years or 200,000 km, whichever comes first.

At PHP 2.760 million, the Dongfeng Rich 6 EV is more expensive than its similarly-sized stablemates despite the EVIDA law already in effect. However, since it doesn’t need fuel or oil, there are reduced maintenance costs and parts to maintain in the long run.
