What is Hycan?
Hycan is a Chinese electric vehicle brand, established in 2018 as a joint-venture between GAC and NIO. Later, NIO has distanced from the JV, so now Hycan is fully owned by GAC. On the tech side, Hycan’s vehicles mainly use solutions from Aion, one more brand under GAC. But Hycan has another design, platforms, and branding. It is mainly aimed at young buyers. Currently, the Hycan model line comprises two vehicles: the Z03 hatchback and the 007 SUV. But its third car has already arrived at dealers. Let’s get to know it better.
