New spy shots from the Chevrolet Sail EV indicate it will be called ‘Springo’. This could however also be a new brand name. When the ‘Sail EV’ debuted as a concept on the 2010 Guangzhou Auto Show it had a new S-shaped logo on the bonnet, leading the intense speculation that Shanghai-GM was planning a green-energy brand.
GM and SAIC didn’t say anything and the concept had a normal ‘Sail’-badge on the back, just like the car we saw on the most recent spy shots in September. Now we know more… S, Springo; it fits. Springo (Spring, go! (?)) also sounds kinda green. But what a weird name it is!

What indeed, was all the fuzz about? The so called ‘facelifted’ Buick Excelle will debut at the Guangzhou Auto Show later this month, but we will skip the party. Compare:

GM has applied for patent for the Chevrolet Trax for China. The Chevrolet Trax debuted last month on the Paris Auto Show, it will hit the European market in 2013. The Trax stands on the same platform as the Buick Encore, which will be launched in China today. The Buick Encore is made in China by the Shanghai-GM joint venture which makes it very likely the Trax will be made in China as well, but so far we haven’t got a 100% confirmation.
