GAC Motor's first high-end MPV launched

GUANGZHOU, China, January 2, 2018

China's fastest-growing automaker GAC Motor has officially released its first high-end multi-purpose vehicle (MPV), the GM8.
The launch, held at the Mangrove Tree International Convention Center in Sanya, is a major milestone for GAC Motor, as it has become the first Chinese automaker to cover the mid- to high-end sedan, SUV and MPV markets, said a statement.
The company's first large-scale MPV model, the GM8 is developed on GAC Motor's C-Class platform, which integrates the world's most cutting-edge technologies. The GM8 measures 5m in length and has a 3-m-long wheelbase to ensure plenty of interior space. The grandeur of the new MPV is also reflected in its spectacular exterior design, luxurious cabin design, smart technology and excellent safety features. The seven-seat MPV is designed to meet the growing demand from Chinese consumers for a better driving experience. Its target consumers will be high-end elites who demand quality and safety for their family, it said.
"Demand has been growing in the Chinese auto market for a spacious and practical MPV that can accommodate both business and family needs," said Yu Jun, president of GAC Motor. "With our new GM8, GAC Motor will not only meet, but will redefine the standards of the high-end Chinese MPV market."
Adhering to GAC Motor's brand philosophy of "innovation, quality and pleasure" and embracing cutting-edge technology, the MPV GM8 completes its line of luxury C-Class vehicles which also includes the GA8 sedan and GS8 SUV. 
The company achieved a 38.9 per cent year-on-year increase in sales from January to November in 2017 and has already met its target of annual sales volume of 500,000 for the year, it said.
Setting a goal of achieving 1 million in sales volume by 2020, GAC Motor has structured a sustainable development strategy to produce quality vehicles with premium design, performance and reliability for global customers. 
GAC Motor is expected to return to North America International Auto Show (NAIAS) in 2018 with its entire line-up of vehicles and an all-electric concept car. - TradeArabia News Service
