We learned from Hozon Auto officials that 3,600 Neta V were shipped to Thailand at Nansha Port in Guangzhou, China. The 3,600 Neta V going overseas this time is the largest single-batch export.
Neta V is responsible for the sales volume of Hozon Auto last year. In 2022, it achieved a record of 95,529 vehicles, with an average monthly sales of 8,000 vehicles. For this type of model, the main focus is cost performance and sales volume.
The length, width and height of Neta V are 4070/1690/1540 mm respectively, and the wheelbase is 2420 mm. In the Chinese market, the 2022 Neta V is priced at 83,900 to 103,800 yuan. This EV has always performed with good cost performance and rich configurations.
As the third model of this new Chinese maker, Neta V was officially launched in November 2020. Neta V features the small and cute style commonly used in small SUVs, forming a big contrast with the previous Neta U, which looks a little mediocre.

The interior of Neta V is also simple. The top of the center console is wrapped with a large area of soft materials. The instrument panel uses a 12-inch slender full LCD instrument with a leather-wrapped multifunctional steering wheel, and a large 14.6-inch central control screen in the middle, most of the functions are integrated in the large central control screen.
The SoC of the infotainment systerm is MediaTek’s Helio P60, which is a mid-range processor launched by MediaTek in March 2018. This car has good technological configurations, the Netva V China spec supports such as keyless entry, PEPS, remote start, L2-level assisted driving, intelligent voice interaction, adaptive cruise, 360-degree panoramic camera, intelligent brake assist, automatic parking, etc., it also supports OTA upgrades.
In terms of power and battery life, the 2022 Nezha V China version provides 40kW, 55kW and 70kW single E-motor versions at the same time, and is equipped with lithium iron phosphate batteries (from CATL) to provide two battery range of 301km and 401km.
As a Chinese startup EV maker, Hozon Auto may also be another good choice to go abroad when the domestic competition for new energy vehicles is becoming increasingly fierce. At present, Hozon Auto has established a European business department and a subsidiary in Thailand, and has launched three overseas products including Neta U International Edition, Neya V International Edition, and Neta V Right-hand Drive Edition. The overseas market covers ASEAN, South Asia, and the Middle East market. At the same time, the official stated that in the future, it plans to expand overseas business to more countries around the world, such as the Middle East and the European Union.
At the same time, Hozon Auto Thailand Eco-Smart Factory officially laid the foundation stone in Khan Narao District, Bangkok. The factory is Hozon’s first overseas factory. In the future, it will become the main base for Hozon to produce right-hand drive electric vehicles.
