Wuling Baojun 630 will be exported to Africa as the Chevrolet Optra

The Wuling Baojun 630 sedan will be exported to North African markets from 2014, rebadged as ‘Chevrolet Optra’.

Baojun is an entry level brand under the SAIC-GM-Wuling joint venture, in which GM has a 33.3% stake. The other partners are SAIC (aka Shanghai Auto) and Wuling Automotive.

The Baojun 630 sedan is based on the Shanghai-GM Buick Excelle. The 630 is available with a 112hp 1.5 and a 143hp 1.8, both petrol. GM will likely also offer a diesel version for Africa. Baojun is currently working on a hatchback variant of the 630, which is expected to make the move to North Africa as well.
