Chinese boutique luxury electric carmaker Gyon will debut new model in US on August 8
In a Wednesday announcement, Chinese boutique luxury electric carmaker Gyon said that it will be unveiling its latest model -- the Gyon concept -- on August 8, 2018, in the US. Gyon is the subsidiary of the Sitech luxury division of Chinese automotive manufacturing company FAW Group.
According to the announcement, the Gyon concept will be presented in Los Angeles by Jacky Xian and Joe Chao, the Sitech CEO and COO respectively.
Going by the concept drawing released by Gyon, the company’s new model will apparently be an electric sedan, with its proportions similar to that of a coupe. The custom electric car will be hand-built by Gyon in collaboration with Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters, a California-based custom body company.
Sharing some of the details about its new model, Gyon said that its new electric car will have a range of between 310 and 434 miles, and will take barely 4.0 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour.
Moreover, the concept drawing released by Gyon indicates that the company’s new electric car will probably be available in two battery-pack options. The car will also boast “the highest-level autonomous driving system in the world,” which will be sourced by Gyon from Bosch.
