Recently, JuneYao Auto (吉祥汽车) revealed the official images of its first model, JuneYao Air, in China. The new car is expected to be unveiled in the second quarter of 2024 with a price tag below 200,000 yuan (28,000 USD) and enter the market in 2025.
The JuneYao Air is designed based on “minimalistic aviation aesthetics” called Ultimate One-Box and sits on a full-stack self-developed pure electric platform, according to the brand. It it worth mentioning that JuneYao Auto emphasized the car is not an MPV.
From the side, the new car adopts a fastback shape, paired with hidden door handles, triangular windows at the A and C pillars, multi-spoke rims, and a layered rear. The wheelbase of the car could be 2800 mm. Furthermore, the rear is minimally embellished except with the popular through-type taillights and a ducktail spoiler.
The front part is decorated with irregular sharp LED headlights and a closed face, coupled with a trapezoidal grille at the bottom.
A panoramic sunroof is also not absent. The JuneYao Air will be available in six exterior colors, including Cloud White, Morning Glow Pink, Sky Blue, Earth Green, Sunrise Gold, and Dawn Black.
Judging from a leaked interior image, the cockpit has a small LCD instrument panel, a two-spoke flat-bottom steering wheel, and a large suspended center control screen. The center console has two cupholders and a wireless charging pad.
