Will be unveiled later this month

GM-SAIC has released the first teaser images of the Springo, ahead of its debut at the Guangzhou Auto Show later this month.

Essentially a production version of the Sail EV concept, the Springo has an aerodynamic front fascia with a Volt-inspired grille. We can also see gold body stripes and low-rolling resistance tires. The lack of Chevrolet badging is notable and it could imply the model will spearhead a new electric sub-brand, but nothing is official as of yet.

Additional information is limited, but the concept is slated to share its powertrain with the Chevrolet Spark EV. This means we can expect a lithium-ion battery and an electric motor that produces 114 bhp (85 kW).

To start selling cars in China, you have to team up with a Chinese car maker first. Jaguar are cooperating with Chery to make cars for China, so maybe this is GM doing the same with SAIC. I don't think it's a new global EV brand, personally.

I just looked up SAIC and read that you are right they are teaming up with GM so they can sell cars in China and SAIC has stated that they won't sell cars in the US for at least another 3 years . This car will use the same drivesystem as the Chevy Spark but nothing else will be shared .

This info was actually news to me. Is GM giving birth to a new brand shortly after it killed others to be more efficient?
