According to Dongfeng Motor, the jointly developed wheel hub drive technology is the world's first wheel-hub electric motor-powered passenger vehicle and demonstration operation project. The automaker registered a trademark for the distributed drive technology brand, “Any-Drive”.

Wheel hub drive is a type of distributed drive technology that features advantages such as high-efficiency energy savings in the transmission system, independently controllable driving and braking torque, and flexible chassis space design, making it one of the power solutions for new energy and intelligent connected vehicles.

The Dongfeng Weifu wheel hub drive system will first be demonstrated in Wuxi, mounted on the Zhuiguang sedan under Dongfeng's new energy vehicle brand, VOYAH, and the E70 battery-electric model under Dongfeng AEOLUS (Fengshen). 

Dongfeng Motor stated that the Dongfeng Weifu wheel hub drive passenger vehicle uses pure-electric four-wheel-drive and high-integration technology of the wheel hub electric motor and controller. Compared with the traditional drive configuration, the vehicle's acceleration from 0-100km/h was improved by 42%, and its maximum speed while turning under extreme conditions was increased by 18%.
