Russian intelligence services, known for their conservative approach to choosing cars, took an unexpected step – the Federal Security Service (FSO) purchased a luxury Chinese Voyah Dream 2024 minivan in a hybrid modification for its needs. This all-wheel drive single-volume vehicle was spotted on the capital’s streets with departmental license plates and special signals.

According to available information, the FSO sampled a rechargeable hybrid version of the Voyah Dream, equipped with a 1.5-liter turbo engine to increase the range. The cost of such a car starts at an impressive 10.29 million rubles. Official Voyah dealers offer various modifications of the Dream in Russia, including luxurious four-seater options priced at about 17 million rubles. But even in the base version, the minivan boasts air suspension, leather interior, projection screens and all-round cameras. Hybrid models are equipped with a power unit with a total power of up to 393 hp. with electric motors on the rear axle.

The FSO’s acquisition of the Chinese Voyah Dream minivan became a kind of exception to the rule for conservative Russian intelligence services. However, the transition to cars from the Middle Kingdom has also affected government agencies – minivans, pickups and crossovers of Chinese brands are increasingly appearing in their fleets.

Another FSO vehicle from China is the Tank 500 SUV. And recently, Great Wall (the parent company of Tank) announced the appearance of a new flagship version of the Tank 500 Hi4-T.
