Baojun electric car

What, can we say? … [waiting a minute]

Okay. There we go. It is a Baojun. It is an electric car. It is real. And General Motors is responsible.

Why? Because Bojun is an entry level brand under the SAIC-GM-Wuling joint venture, in which General Motors has a 43% stake. The other partners are SAIC (aka Shanghai Auto) and Wuling Automotive.

SAIC and GM are also tied up in the giant Shanghai-GM joint venture that makes Buick, Chevrolet, and Cadillac cars for the Chinese market.

Baojun makes a series of perfectly decent petrol powered cars. Next to that they make a series of electric cars. Their first electric baby was the Baojun E100, which launched last year.

Next up is this one, called the Baojun E200.

And this is the all-new car, looking just as weird from the back as from everywhere else. The type name has been blurred. There seems to be a D, something unreadable, and two zero’s. Perhaps this is the first car of a yet-unannounced D-Series.

We know it will have an electric motor with 39 hp, good for a 100 km/h top speed. It is a 2-seater, sized 2497/1526/1616, with a 1600 wheelbase.

I know that brands have to stand out in the hyper competitive small-electric car market in China. But is this the right way to go..? Probably not.

  1. Terrible!!
    More important perhaps, is the size of the wheels. Smaller than 14″ should not be allowed. Even in 100 km/h ….
    Everything else is criminal, but so is the design – anyway. 🙂
