New Spy Shots of the upcoming Guangzhou Auto Trumpchi GE3, an electric crossover SUV for China. It debuted in semi-concept form on the Detroit Auto Show in January and we saw the first pictures of the production version in February. The Trumpchi GE3 will be launched on the Chinese car market during the Shanghai Auto Show next month.

The GE3 will be powered by an electric motor with 177 hp (in Detroit they said 163hp). Top speed will be 156 km/h and range somewhere around 300 kilometers. Size: 4346/1825/1637, and wheelbase is 2560.
The GE3 stands on a new platform especially developed for electric cars. It will also underpin an MPV and a sedan.

Back in Detroit. She’s got great bags at the rear as well. No Trumpchi name on the rear, likely because Guangzhou Auto was not looking for a connection between their Chinese cars and the new president.
First look at the interior of the production car, and it looks 100% similar to the…
