Chevrolet Menlo EV Interior Finally Revealed10
When the all-new Chevrolet Menlo EV made its debut earlier this month, General Motors only showed the exterior of its new electric crossover for the Chinese market, leaving the interior for a later reveal. Well, that moment is here, as GM is currently showing the Menlo EV for the first time to the public at the 2019 Guangzhou Auto Show, revealing its cabin.
As in most current models from the Bowtie brand, the cabin of the Chevrolet Menlo EV adopts the well-known dual-cockpit design language, which uses various “layers” and two contrasting colors to adorn both the dashboard and the rest of the cabin. In addition, the new electric vehicle includes ambient lighting called “hydrogen blue” that GM says is exclusive to Chevrolet zero-emission vehicles.
Aesthetically, the center console of the Chevrolet Menlo EV interior features an eye-catching design with multiple layers and sculptural shapes that take on a horizontal focus. The shape and layout of several elements are quite similar to those seen in the all-new Chevrolet Onix, including the steering wheel, the air vents and the floating central display.
Speaking of the multimedia screen, the Chevrolet Menlo EV makes use of a 10.1-inch diagonal screen that launches a new generation of the Chevrolet infotainment system. In addition, the Menlo EV has a fully digital instrument panel using an 8-inch, high-resolution LCD screen. GM says the graphics on both panels were specially designed to offer a more convenient and intuitive driver experience.
According to the automaker, the interior of the Chevrolet Menlo EV offers healthy amounts of space thanks to a highly-optimized design and a strategic placement of the battery pack. This allows enough room in each of the vehicle’s five seats, while also offering a large trunk, whose cargo volume can be expanded from 15.3 to 38.1 cubic feet of capacity by folding the second-row seats. In addition, the Menlo EV has a total of 28 intelligent storage spaces distributed throughout the cabin.
As we have previously reported, the Chevrolet Menlo EV is the brand’s first pure electric model in China – where the Bolt EV was never marketed. The vehicle, which features an innovative exterior design inspired by the 2017 Chevrolet FNR-X Concept, will go on sale in China during the first half of the 2020 calendar year. As of this writing, we are not aware of any plans by GM to market the new Menlo EV outside of China.

Thoughts on this making it to the US market?
I’m curious especially with the new Mustang Mach-E’s recent reveal.
Personally I would love to see a move crossover based EV here in the states.
Very nice !ooking. If they make both elec and gas they both would sell.
Yes, GM, sell it in the U.S.! It may be assembled in China, but the money from each sale stays in the U.S. economy.
Your an idiot. The money that stays in the USA from offshored jobs goes straight to wall street and Mary Barry’s club. Not to the people who actually do the work for GM. She will never get a dime from me for buying a foreign GM car after all the slimy shit she pulled by closing plants in the USA and adding new products to Mexico.
I would rather support Honda or Toyota the makes cars in the USA instead of foreign GM crap.
I hope it doesn’t take you losing your job to offshoring for you to finally figure this out.
Give this a thumbs down if you want your job moved to China or Mexico!
It looks a lot like the CT5 and CT4 interior. Similar shaped info screen, the little swoop, or upward kink above the glove compartment? Only the row of redundant buttons beneath the info screen are a real departure from being different.
While I think it looks nice, I think Caddy’s interiors should be “designed” more luxuriously. I’m sure the materials are fine, but the aesthetics could use some assistance. I think more Escala influence would do the trick.
Nice overall design. But the Materials better be good.
Take a look at the interior of the audi q5 and kia telluride and you may see some similarity, in the way design cues….the center stack looks quite similar, but sharp. Good looking over all though.
Looks nicer then the Mach-E imho.
Man do I hate those over sized, tacked on tablets stuck to the dash!
Actually it looks like new Chevy Onix but more luxury – too generic China design
