Among the VEM2023 stands, we found two models from Chinese brands that have just landed in Spain with two very different models. the impressive Voyah Free and the Yudo K3. Voyah is a brand of the giant automobile group Dongfeng Motor Corporation, and the Free is an almost five-meter-long SUV with a spectacular look.
Its calling cards are two electric motors that provide all-wheel drive and an output of 489 hp, with 106 kWh of batteries. The set enables a top speed of 200 km/h, with acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds and a range of 505 km.

But the “vehicle” that really surprised us was this Valans Eland, which is difficult to classify as it looks like a scooter with three large wheels and a saddle similar to that of a bicycle. Its design is avant-garde and groundbreaking, as are its technical characteristics, as its power can reach up to 15 HP. The battery has a capacity of 4.8 kWh, charges in two hours and has a range of 100 km. The most surprising thing is that it can reach a speed of 100 km/h because it is registered and you need an A1 license to drive it.for motorcycles up to 125 cc or electric motors with a maximum of 15 hp.
