New Spy Shots of the all new Baojun E100, a new electric vehicle for China. The Baojun E100 will debut, likely in concept form, of the Beijing Auto Show in April, and the real thing will be launched on the Chinese car market in October.
An incredible hip interior with an all-digital instrument panel and a take-out pad in the center. The drive-selector is located between the seats. This particular development car is painted in two-tone white over orange inside and out, earlier on we saw a white over green example.
Details of the drivetrain are very scarce; all we know is that the E100 will have a range of 100 kilometer and a top speed of 100 kilometer per hour. Hence the name.
Wuling is a brand name of the SAIC-GM-Wuling joint venture, in which GM has a 43% stake. The other partners are SAIC (aka Shanghai Auto) and Wuling Automotive. SAIC and GM are tied up in the giant Shanghai-GM joint venture that makes Buick, Chevrolet, and Cadillac cars for the Chinese market.
The E100 is the first of a range of new electric vehicles under the Baojun brand. They are also working on another small one with a BMW i syndrome. Baojun has built a new plant for the production of all those electrifying cars in the great city of Liuzhou in Guangxi Province.
It has those odd rails on the roof. Possibly for charging..? Black wheel arches hide tiny wheels. Black headlights work well on white car.
