Changan's Deep Blue Brand Undergoes Name Change: What it Means for Independent Operation

Recently, the new brand of Changan, Changan Shenlan, may be renamed as Shenlan Motors, indicating that the brand may operate independently in the future, similar to the relationship between Geely and Ji Ke.

Shenlan brand was officially established in April 2022, focusing on new digital pure electric products. The first model, Shenlan SL03, has been launched and delivered, offering three versions of pure electric, extended range, and hydrogen energy, with a price range of 171,900 to 699,900 yuan. As of the end of February, Changan Shenlan SL03 has delivered a cumulative total of 37,328 units. The second model, Shenlan S7, completed its debut in March and is expected to be officially launched in the first half of the year, with pure electric and extended range versions.

The Shenlan S7 is positioned as a medium-sized SUV. The overall appearance and interior continue the design style of the Shenlan family, but some details show their own characteristics, such as the cancellation of the instrument panel design in the car, replaced by a large-size AR-HUD head-up display. The car will be built on the EPA1 platform. In terms of power, the maximum power of the electric motor of the pure electric version is 160 kW and 190 kW, and the range-extender version is equipped with a 1.5L naturally aspirated engine with a maximum power of 70 kW, and the peak power of the drive motor is 175 kW.
