CONCEPTS

 

Make: GAC Motor

Model: EV Coupe

The EV concept is created by GAC Engineering based on its own A-class platform and is applied with GAC’s Green-Mute EV technology.

The advanced high-energy lithium battery pack and e-machine system form the safe and forceful powertrain, which makes the vehicle capable of reaching a speed of 150 km/h, a 0-100 km/h acceleration time of 9.8 seconds, and a grade of greater than 35 percent. Its cutting edge EPS system works cooperatively with the e-machine, to guarantee a safe, reliable but energy re-generative braking, which contributes to the vehicle’s maximum range of 240 km.

The concept reveals GAC’s latest probe into automotive configurational innovation and more eco-friendly NEVs, and the results will be soon applied to GAC’s upcoming mass-production car models.

 

Make: GAC Motor

Model: i-Lounge MPV

This is the first 7-seat MPV concept developed by GAC Engineering. The 3,000 mm wheelbase gives the vehicle a superior cozy space. GAC’s newly developed 2.0T turbo engine matched with a 6AT will provide sufficient power.
