Last year China’s TechRules surprised the Geneva Motor Show with the GT96 TREV supercar. TREV stands for Turbine-Recharging Electric Vehicle, combining an electric motor with a turbine. This year the company will be back with two cars: an extreme racy concept as seen on the first photo and… the production version of the GT96.
The Guangzhou Auto EnSpirit concept car has been unveiled on the Detroit Auto Show. It previews a future sporty electric SUV-coupe that is all about clean and green. Guangzhou Auto went back to basics; what better cleans the air than a tree? Nothing does, so the EnSpirit has one on-board.
Guangzhou Auto is going all out on the upcoming Detroit Auto Show. They will bring three world debuts: the GS7, the GE3, and the EnSpirit. Starting with names: Guangzhou Auto normally uses the English brand name “Trumpchi” for their cars but the name is absent on the teasers. One wonders why…
Hanergy launched four solar-powered concept cars in July, but I hadn’t seen any in person yet. Happily, the company had a booth on the Guangzhou Auto Show, showing the sporty Hanergy Solar R. It has solar panels on the hood, on the roof, on the entire rear deck, and on the surfaces besides the side windows
The Buick Velite concept was unveiled on the Guangzhou Auto Show, looking very beautiful in blue, with a low grille, angry lights, and a racy front spoiler. The Velite concept was designed by Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center (PATAC), GM’s Chinese design studio.
Guangzhou Auto has released a teaser of the new Enlight, an electricsupercarconcept that will debut on the Guangzhou Auto Show on Friday, and it sure looks speedy. The company has announced it will be four-wheel drive with a time-attack rear-wheel drive mode, and that it will have an autopilot mode.
No other specs available yet. The Enlight is a concept but don’t rule out the possibility of production. There are shiploads of Chinese electric supercars on the way: Beijing Auto will make a small series of the ArcFox-7, and then we have the NextEV, the Qiantu Motor K50, the Windboooster Titan, and the turbine-assisted TechRules A96.
GM China has released a teaser of the Buick Velite concept car that will debut on the Guangzhou Auto Show later this month, with sharp looking lights and a blue-glowing grille. But we are very sure the production version won’t get any of that.
It is indeed very odd that Buick bothers with a concept at all because the real thing is ready to go. Buick probably doesn’t want the Velite to take away attention from the new GL8, which is one of Buick’s biggest moneymakers in China.
Landwind has scored a massive hit with their X7 Evoque clone. That means they have money and that means they will launch shiploads of new cars. First up is a new compact SUV code named E33. It will debut in close-to-production-concept form on the Guangzhou Auto Show and launch on the Chinese car market in H1 2017.
China’s Hanergy has unveiled four solar-powered vehicles. The company says production could start around 2020. Hanergy Holdings is a large clean-energy company and the world’s largest thin-film solar power company. The four vehicles are fitted with solar panels on the roof tops and on the bonnets.
