Dongfeng M18 is China’s 1,070HP Electric SUV

Updated: Jun 25



“High-end electric off-road brand,” was how Chinese automaker Dongfeng described itself. And to complete this claim, they made their own Hummer EV.


It’s a pity, to tell you quite honestly. China has been making strides in the EV market, but they still continue doing these kinds of business practices.


The Dongfeng M18 is the EV version of the M50 Warrior – China’s infamous Hummer clone. This attempt to make an EV off-roader is the company’s answer to its market demand, as the government supports EV transition, and as more people embrace western-influenced products.


In order to sell this, of course they had to impress people with numbers. So here’s what the Dongfeng M18 has:


One 800Kw motor making 1,070 horsepower

0-62 miles per hour in under 5 seconds

140kWh battery, with a range of 311 miles

Weighs 6,384 pounds

About 17 feet long, and over 7 feet wide
