Chevrolet disclosed on Monday that its first fully electric vehicle, the Chevrolet Menlo, will be joining its lineup in China. The new nameplate is making its global debut at 2019 Chevrolet Gala Night in Hefei, Anhui, on November 8.
The Chevrolet Menlo will help meet the needs of the growing number of car buyers across China who wish to drive a new energy vehicle. It will also help promote vehicles powered by electricity and increase their acceptance by consumers.
The Chevrolet Menlo is a sporty-looking sedan that leverages GM’s highly efficient and reliable electric propulsion and intelligent connectivity technology. Its design was inspired by the Chevrolet FNR-X all-purpose sports concept vehicle.
Chevrolet has long been committed to electrification in China, its second-largest market.
Chevrolet introduced the Volt, its first extended-range electric vehicle, in China in 2011. It demonstrated the EN-V 2.0, the second generation of the Electric Networked-Vehicle that was shown at the SAIC-GM Pavilion at World Expo 2010 Shanghai, from 2015 to 2017.
