Aion LX Plus electric SUV with 1000km range to be launched on 6th January

Chinese companies are showing great speed in the electric vehicle race. Earlier this year, China’s GAC Group revealed its new electric vehicle under the Aion brand. The new Electric Vehicle (EV) is an SUV. It is called Aion LX Plus. The SUV offers a powerful range of 1000 kms and is going to be launched very soon. In November this year, GAC announced the Aion LX Plus at the Guangzhou Auto Show. Now the company has officially told that its new SUV will be launched on 6 January 2021.

According to Gizmochina, this electric SUV is an improved version of the GAC Aion LX. It was announced in the year 2019. The SUV had an operational range of over 1,000 km in the China Light Duty Vehicle Test Cycle (CLTC).

This is an impressive range considering the SUV segment. What deserves this range is the big battery in the car. Its top end model has a capacity of 144.4 kWh. The car battery is built on GAC technology. Because of this, it is made 20 percent smaller and 14 percent lighter than normal batteries. This battery also delivers an energy density of 205Wh/kg.

Talking about the rest of the specifications of this electric SUV, then it has a dual electric motor. It produces 225 horsepower and this power is transmitted to all four wheels of the vehicle through a two-speed gearbox. The Aion LX Plus can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in just 2.9 seconds. GAC Group introduced three electric car concepts at the Guangzhou Auto Show 2021. Of these, Aion LX Plus is currently being launched. There is currently no information about the concept cars named TIME and EMKOO.

The company has not yet told anything about the launch of the Aion LX Plus SUV in the global market. The rest of the features of the car will only remove the curtain during its price. For this we have to wait till 6th January.

Just last month, Japanese automaker Subaru Corp. also introduced its first all-electric SUV ‘Solterra’ to the world. This all-electric SUV has been jointly developed by the company with Toyota Motor Corp. The new model will be sold alongside Toyota’s bZ4X in the US, Canada, Europe, China and Japan by the middle of next year.
