The exterior is basically Sail except for some changes at the grille. Springo-logo is an S-shape in an oval. ‘Springo’ likely stands for ‘Spring, go!’ but we are not sure yet. Shanghai-GM has announced they will talk about their ‘green-strategy’ on the Guangzhou show and I guess they will also say what this strange Springo-word is all about.

Springo C Green Drive EV. Not sure where the ‘C’ stands for but it might be the name of the vehicle, which up until now is still a mystery. Springo is the brand name, but the car itself doesn’t have a name yet. Shangha-GM might also decide to simply call it Springo until the second Springo arrives. We will be sure on Friday.
