GM’s Chinese joint venture launches pure-electric Baojun E100 in China at just $5,300

General Motors’ presence in China just got more electrifying as the carmaker – through its SAIC-GM-Wuling joint venture – recently officially unveiled the Baojun E100. Considered as the brand’s first fully electric vehicle in China, the Baojun E100 comes in a very compact package and is offered in a very compact price.

At first glance, an onlooker may mistake the Baojun E100 as Chinese version of the smart ForTwo or the Scion iQ. But after a closer look, it becomes apparent that the design language is very different while the horse logo mounted on the front end of the E100 quickly tells us that it isn’t a smart or a Scion.

Long and wide enough to accommodate up to two adults in a comfortable manner, the E100 is indeed a compact unit, even with its height of 1,670 mm. Featuring a wheelbase that measures 1,600 mm, the new Baojun E100 has a turning radius of 3.7 meters, allowing the full electric car to maneuver into and from tight spaces without considerable problems.

Official: GM’s Baojun 630 sedan goes on sale in China

General Motors Co. launched its first sedan under a new China-only brand in order to tap the entry-level buyers in the largest vehicle market in the world. The company is the largest overseas vehicle manufacturer in China. The 1.5-liter four-door Baojun 630 sedan will go on sale with prices ranging from 62,800 yuan ($9,750) to 73,800 yuan, the company revealed.

The vehicle will be available in three kinds and will be available through 120 dealers in eight cities, including Harbin, Changsha, Nanning and Zhengzhou.

The company follows Honda Motor Co. in building cheaper China-only brands in order to increase sales among first-time buyers while overall car deliveries slow this 2011 after the government halted giving incentives and imposed ownership restrictions to discourage traffic congestion.

First Baojun 630 car rolls out of SAIC-GM-Wuling’s plant in Guangxi, China

The first Baojun 630 passenger car recently rolled out of SAIC-GM-Wuling’s manufacturing plant in Liuzhou, Guangxi. SAIC-GM-Wuling, one of GM China's main joint ventures, is relying on the Baojun (its new brand of affordable vehicles to appeal to local car buyers throughout China). Deliveries will start in early 2011 for the Baojun 630, the first model.

The Baojun 630 is a compact sedan that was developed locally. It features a highly efficient GM powertrain that complies with local emission standards as well as the advanced Euro IV standard.

GM to launch Baojun cars to penetrate China mass market

To capture the market share at the low-end of the Chinese market, General Motors Co. will launch its new Baojun brand cars this month. China chief Kevin Wale said that its brand competes with domestic carmakers such as Geely, Chery and BYD Co Ltd.

Wale, who is the president and managing director of GM's China operations, said that the Baojun brand, which is a product of GM's SAIC-GM-Wuling Automotive Co joint venture, will be introduced later in November and will arrive at the market next year.

Last January, GM gained some ground in the mass car market in China by releasing the Chevrolet New Sail autos, produced by its China venture with SAIC Motor Corp.

A new brand, Baojun, will be introduced by the SAIC-GM-Wuling joint venture to handle marketing of its future lineup of passenger cars. The Chinese word Baojun is translated to "treasured horse."

According to the partnership among General Motors Co., Shanghai Automotive Industry Corp. and Wuling Motors, the first passenger car model will be launched next year. These plans were outlined last Sunday during a press event in Shanghai.

The first Wuling car model will be a mid-sized sedan based on the Buick Excelle. The car was designed by the Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center, a Shanghai design studio shared by GM and SAIC.
