SAIC-GM-Wuling joint venture launches first Baojun EV
Automotive News China | 2017/7/25

SHANGHAI -- SAIC-GM-Wuling launched sales of its first Baojun electric car -- the E100, which is aimed at entry-level buyers.

The car is priced as low as 35,800 yuan ($5,300), after national and local subsidies.

The E100 will be initially marketed as a low-volume niche vehicle. GM said the venture has sold an initial batch of 200 vehicles, with a second batch of 500 that went on sale on July 22.

Initial sales are limited to Guangxi province, where the partnership is located.

The E100 is powered by a single electric motor that generates 110 Nm of torque and 29 kW of motoring power. The car has a range of 155 km, and the lithium ion battery pack can be fully charged in 7.5 hours.

The vehicle has a maximum speed of 100 km per hour.

While the car has a modest top speed, it is equipped with regenerative brakes, a 7-inch screen, a pedestrian alert system, parking sensors and antilock brakes.

SAIC-GM-Wuling, incorporated in the southwest China city of Liuzhou, is a 50.1-44-5.9 percent partnership among SAIC Motor Corp., General Motors and the Liuzhou government.

The partnership produces Wuling microvans and compact multipurpose vehicles as well as Baojun passenger vehicles.
