The Voyah Zhuiguang, previously known as the H53, is set to be released in the first quarter of 2023. In addition to the Zhuiguang, Voyah currently sells the Free SUV and Dreamer MPV. The Zhuiguang features a closed front face design for improved aerodynamics and a longer battery range, as well as sporty cuts and creases on the front. The front grille is connected to the LED headlights on either side in a through-type design, and the Voyah logo is prominently displayed in the grille.
The Voyah Zhuiguang has sleek lines and low-drag wheels, which contribute to its low drag coefficient of 0.225Cd. It also has pop-out door handles, darkened windows, and light units. In terms of size, the car is 5088mm in length, 1970mm in width, and 1505mm in height, with a wheelbase of 3000mm.
At the rear, the Zhuiguang has a through-type LED taillight group design and an electric spoiler that can be raised and lowered for added sportiness and downforce of up to 40kg. The car is equipped with 31 high-performance sensors, 12 cameras, 5 mm-wave radars, 12 ultrasonic radars, and two high-precision positioning units.
Inside, the Zhuiguang has three 12.3-inch screens that support gesture control and facial and voice recognition.

The rear of the car has an additional 7-inch control screen for adjusting audio, heating, ventilation, ambient lighting, and other functions.
The Voyah Zhuiguang is based on the “ESSA+SOA” platform, which stands for Electric, Smart, Secure, and Architecture. According to Voyah, this platform offers high electric drive efficiency and can support all-electric, hybrid, and hydrogen powertrains. Its battery can charge up to 230 km in just 10 minutes and it has independent suspension systems on both axles, equipped with two electric motors and 4WD. The “SOA” portion of the platform stands for Service-Oriented Architecture, which refers to its high computing power.
The Zhuiguang is a new sedan that will compete with models such as the NIO ET7 and Zhiji L7. It has a four-wheel drive system with dual motors, producing a maximum of 160kW (218 hp) at the front and 215kW (292 hp) at the rear, for a combined output of 375kW (510 hp) and maximum torque of 730 Nm. The car can reach a top speed of 210 km/h and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds.
