Venucia is absolutely new brand – a product of the Dongfeng Nissan Passenger Vehicle Company (DFL-PV). It is part of Nissan's global platform and will be specifically built for the Chinese market. Now the brand is introducing its fifth vehicle, the e30, which in holds credentials for affordability and pure electric-vehicle-experience. The car was unveiled just a few days ago. The model was locally developed through Nissan's careful studies about market situations and consumer needs in China.

To go further into details, the Venucia e30 achieves an optimal balance between driving range, affordability and convenient charging. For instance, the running costs for e30 are only about one-seventh of gasoline models of the same grade. This result is due to e30's energy consumption at only 0.146kWh/km.

Furthermore, both normal-charge and quick-charge options are also available. Thanks to them the e30 can run about 60km on a quick-charge of only five minutes. The quality and safety of e30 have been validated by the five million kilometer failure-free pilot program, accumulated by more than 300 cars on the roads of Guangzhou, Xiangyang and Dalian.
