Eye To Eye With The Hanergy Solar-R Solar Powered Car From China

Guangzhou Auto Teases The Enlight Electric Supercar Concept For The Guangzhou Auto Show

Guangzhou Auto has released a teaser of the new Enlight, an electric supercar concept 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.

The electric future looks sunny.

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.
