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!

The Roewe E50 EV has been launched on the Chinese car market, price is 234.900 yuan, or 37.600 USD. Not cheap for such a small vehicle, but it is only the second proper electric car on the China auto market after the BYD e6 which was launched in October last year. Various subsidies will get the price down a bit but SAIC hasn’t named a number.
