Test drive, performance and fuel consumption Mocha DHT-PHEV of the Great Wall brand | Car Blog



Price starts : $47.103

More and more independent brands are introducing their own hybrid technology. As the first major brand in China, Great Wall naturally also has powerful hybrid technology.

This time, at the Great Wall Motors Xushui test track, come to experience the Wei brand's Ji Dacheng, the high-performance all-wheel drive version of the Mocha DHT-PHEV based on the lemon platform. This car is truly a product that combines luxurious construction, technology, power and fuel economy.


In terms of appearance, the Mocha DHT-PHEV is really identical to the fuel version, the front center grille applies the main "big mouth" design. Baby's breath can really give People a powerful visual impact.

The LED headlights with light source and sharp edges make the front end look luxurious due to chrome plating, but also exude technology and power.


Body contours full of muscles. Is an SUV with a really luxurious balanced body. The tires are shod with Continental EC6 energy-saving tires of specification 265/45 R1 and the bright black wheels are beautiful and match the sporty atmosphere of this high-performance car.



The rear shape is similar to the fuel Mocha version, except for the rear that turns into a Mocha PHEV, the roof spoiler is very sporty. But as a high-performance version of the exhaust, the hidden design seems a bit inappropriate. In addition, as a PHEV version, 6.6kW fast charging and the usual AC slow charging interface are added to the right side of the vehicle.


Interior Great Wall Mocha DHT-PHEV

The interior design of the car is not too sporty but full of luxury. A lot of details are made with precision, and it is also equipped with high-tech configurations such as AI intelligent facial recognition, voice recognition system, 12-speaker Yanfei Lishi sound system, and more.

The 14.6-inch central control screen on the car is equipped with a Qualcomm 8155 chip in the cockpit, the whole experience is very smooth, even having an intuitive feeling like using an Android phone. In addition, on the left side of the screen there is a very intuitive design page, the operation is very simple, you do not need to go to a sub page in the system to find and adjust the functions you need.

The space of the luggage compartment is also worth mentioning, Below the luggage compartment is where the car's very encroaching battery pack is located, which is also a benefit of the new hybrid platform. Underneath the trunk lid is tire repair fluid and some emergency tools, but a spare tire is not provided.

Personally, I feel that I am not used to using a multimedia rearview mirror in a car. This rearview mirror cannot be replaced with a traditional optical rearview mirror. You can only adjust the settings on the screen. But this can also be easily adapted to many people.

Power section The Mocha DHT-PHEV High Performance All-Wheel Drive version is equipped with a 1.5T turbocharged engine and 130kW front-wheel drive. This set of systems combines with the traditional 2-speed regulation system to form the DHT's power layout, while the PHEV Section is a combination of a 135kW rear-wheel drive motor and a 39.67kWh battery pack. The power of the front and rear wheels can be combined to produce a maximum torque of 762 Nm, the official 0-100km / h acceleration time is 4.8 seconds, which is definitely a parameter. very powerful for an SUV of more than two tons.

Great Wall's DHT (Dedicated Hybrid Technology) hybrid technology is still very advanced, in addition to using an electric motor to compensate for the engine's poor fuel economy at low speeds, it also adds a two-speed transmission. . With this gearbox The engine can also be connected to work at relatively high vehicle speeds. And the computer can also calculate whether it is more economical to engage the motor in generating power or to connect to the output power under current working conditions.



Mocha DHT-PHEV launches two versions, one is a long-distance version, pure electric endurance can reach 204 km, comprehensive endurance of more than 1,000 km and fuel consumption per 100 km is 5.55L.

During the test drive, a somewhat intense lap test was performed. Although its weight has increased, the additional battery pack on the chassis makes its center of gravity very low and the handling will be more precise. In addition, the power matching of the rear-wheel engine is also very precise. In addition to the winding ramps, I went through a 60° ramp where many traditional PHEV electric four-wheelers failed. The Mocha DHT-PHEV High Performance All-Wheel Drive version is surprisingly easy.


The overall tuning of the chassis is very sturdy, the weight of the car itself already exceeds two tons, but the electromagnetically soft and hard adjustable suspension also plays a big role. Moreover, the vibration filter inside the car is actually in place, and there is no resonance or abnormal noise in the car when going through the rough road surface of the test site at high speed. Apart from pure electric driving every day, the car's quietness is truly impeccable, and with the great interior design, the luxury car "taste" is there.


In front of the chassis is a Macpherson-style independent suspension and at the rear is a multi-link independent suspension, the front and rear swingarms are made of aluminum alloy to reduce weight. The most important thing is that this Mocha DHT-PHEV has a high-performance all-wheel drive version Unlike other PHEV models, the battery pack protrudes quite a bit from the chassis, the design is quite local.

The four-wheel drive Mocha DHT-PHEV high-performance version also has a variety of adjustable driving modes, I think the most practical is the hybrid mode, which can control the amount of battery reserve on its own. This way, even without daily charging conditions, it can be driven like a powerful hybrid car, even with higher fuel consumption, I think it is worth it. In addition to these Mocha DHT-PHEV high-performance all-wheel drive versions, seven drive modes are also available: standard, economy, sport, snow, all-wheel drive and sand, with the addition of a table. Single pedal and wading mode are very practical.

In this current era of hybrid models, the Mocha DHT-PHEV is definitely shining. The fuel economy and power output of this powertrain is not a blind search for stability and reduced fuel consumption. While controlling fuel consumption, it also utilizes the characteristics of the engine to create a powerful performance.

Our test drive today was to experience the extreme performance of this powertrain. It is expected that we will have the opportunity to perform long-distance testing next month. After that, the actual driving experience of Mocha DHT-PHEV will be more obvious. The Mocha DHT-PHEV, which is a model built by the Wei Ji Dacheng brand, will likely sell for more than 300,000 yuan ($47,103) in the future, much more expensive than the fuel-powered version.
