Detroit Auto Show: GAC Teases the GAC Motor GS4: Comments

Recommended Posts

Usually, the announcement of a Chinese vehicle debuting an auto show doesn't make our radar. But this one is a bit different. The Guangzhou Automobile Group (GAC) will be bringing three vehicles to the Detroit Auto Show, one of them will be a world premiere. This isn't GAC's first time in Detroit. A couple years back, the company showed off several vehicles.

The world premiere is the GAC Motor GS4, a "high-performance compact sport-utility vehicle". We're a bit dubious on the 'high-performance' part as this vehicle will come with either a 1.3L or 1.5L engines, both turbocharged. However, the GS4's looks seem to fit the 'high-performance' concept with a lowered roofline, narrow grille, and wraparound headlights.

"The debut of GS4 at the North American International Auto Show will mark a milestone in GAC Motor's history because it shows that our products have met the international standards. The high-performance SUV is indeed a representative of Chinese brand vehicles which are able to compete in the global market," said Wu Song, general manager of GAC Motor in a statement.

Two other models will be shown along the GS4. The WITSTAR is a range-extended EV concept that is expected to have a range of 370 miles. The other concept is the GA6 GT concept car, which is also a range-extended EV.

Interesting, as the front nose reminds me of Toyota's Hydrogen butt ugly car with a bit of grill work from Korea and Ford.

 

Have to say while it would be worthy of a look, most people can just move along to better stuff from America. Just keep em on the radar to know what they are doing and make sure to beat them.

interesting... a chinese car press conference we might have to attend for a change.

 

GAC actually has some good models, besides the fairly decent models they produce alongside with Fiat and Toyota.
