Built primarily at GAC NE’s Smart Eco-Plant and slated for sales in May 2019, pre-sales for the Aion S are available via the GAC app. As part of the production process, owners can customize their vehicle upon ordering, and visually track the production status in the app.
“The Aion S represents a new era for EVs, bringing technology enjoyment to people ahead of others,” said Gu Huinan, General Manager of GAC NE.
With a drag coefficient of 0.245 Cd, the Aion S’ design integrates aerodynamics for sleek and ergonomic innovation. With an exterior measuring 4,768 mm in length supported by a 2,750 mm wheelbase, the design reduces rolling resistance to decrease overall energy consumption.
The Aion S is equipped with integrated high performance “three in one” electric drive system and CATL’s latest-generation NCM 811 battery cells. Achieving a maximum power of 150kW and maximum torque of 350n.m, its range reach 510km (317 miles) under NEDC.
The Aion S is also China’s first vehicle to use solar power. Solar panels on the sunroof reduce power required for charging and provide an energy-efficient internal ventilation and circulation system.
The vehicle is capable of Level 2 autonomous driving assistance including adaptive cruise control (ICA), traffic jam assistance (TJA), and smart parking assistance (APA). Mobile intelligence is supported through smart voice commands via Tencent, and a keyless smartphone unlocking system, which increase safety and efficiency.
