GM Sail Spring EV Goes After Chinese Electric Car Market

General Motors, even as it is busy showcasing its newly unveiled Chevy Spark EV electric car in Los Angeles, also is evolving global plans of electrified vehicle roll outs in other key markets. One of the latest is China, where Shanghai GM recently announced the Sail Springo EV, pricing for around $41,400. While this is a little on the expensive side for electric cars, especially in a market seeing trouble selling these types of vehicles, buyers in Shanghai can get incentives of up to $9,635 from the central government and $6,420 from the local government, dropping the price to a more reasonable $25,345. This price is remarkably close to that of the Spark EV after incentives offered here in the United States.

The Sail Springo EV, according to Shanghai General Motors, is the first production electric vehicle created by a Chinese joint venture between it and the Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center. It is based off of what’s described as a a new electric vehicle architecture developed by the two, which includes an electric motor capable of producing 85 kW of power and up to 510 Nm of torque and allowing acceleration from 0 to 60 MPH in around 10 seconds.
