BEV (battery electric vehicle) coupe that boasts a range up to 600km at the forthcoming Auto Guangzhou 2018, according to local media.It is reported that the all-new coupe, based on GAC Group's second-generation BEV platform, will be manufactured at GAC NE's new intelligent plant.
According to the published manuscript, the yet-to-be-unveiled BEV model features the streamlined body design with quite a low height, which could greatly reduce the air resistance. The concise waistlines, T-shaped headlights and the horizontal one-piece taillights all highlight the theme of “futuristic technology”.
The model doesn’t adopt a large-sized intake grille at the front face because of its BEV attribute. The headlights are connected by a trim in the middle, elongating the length of the front face for people's visual effect. In the lower part, a massive grille seems to underscore the vehicle's superiority in acceleration.
Besides, the relatively larger size for rims and smaller aspect ratio for tires suggest the coupe's sports performance.
GAC NE currently has such models as the Trumpchi GE3, GS4 PHEV and GA3S PHEV available for sale. The Trumpchi GE3 530 sports a NEDC-rated range up to 410km, priced between RMB129,800 and RMB155,800 after consumers are subsidized.
