Earlier at the GAC Technology Day, GAC released its Mapless Intelligent Driving technology solution, and the new Hyper GT global model will be the first to be equipped with this solution. Previously, Hyper’s Mapless Intelligent Driving has been tested on the roads in Milan, Bangkok, and Hong Kong. Judging from the name of the “global model,” the car may be launched in the overseas market at the same time as it is launched in China.

The Hyper GT was first launched in July 2023 to take on the Tesla Model 3, and also the brand’s first battery-swappable model. Its price starts at 30,370 USD. For reference, the Hyper GT is built on GAC’s AEP 3.0 platform, positioned as a medium-sized sedan, measuring 4886/1885/1449 mm with a 2920 mm wheelbase. Power comes from a rear electric motor that outputs 250 kW (340 hp) and 434 Nm. Its 0 – 100 km/h acceleration time is 4.9 seconds.

Furthermore, the Hyper GT features scissor doors and has a drag coefficient of 0.197Cd.

With the announcement of this global model, it is not difficult to see that GAC is looking to expand its overseas market. Recently, the Chinese automotive community has been discussing GAC’s recruitment of Tesla’s laid-off Supercharging team in the United States to further expand its charging network in overseas markets.

In April, GAC Aion sold 28,113 vehicles, down 31.45% year-on-year. Specifically, the combined sales of Hyper’s three models were just over 1,000 units, with the best-selling model being the Hyper GT, with sales of only 584 units in April, down 43% month-on-month.
