SAIC-GM-Wuling, one of General Motors’ joint ventures in China, has just revealed the interior design of the upcoming Baojun E300 EV, which made its official debut in January. Along with the first images of the fully electric minicar’s cockpit, the company also announced that the upcoming model will hit the market in two different versions: E300 and E300 Plus.
Essentially, the Baojun E300 and E300 Plus will share the same 103.3-inch overall length, 64.8-inch width and 62.5-inch-tall body, which is built on a dedicated platform with a 68.9-inch wheelbase. However, official information indicates that the two variants will differ in regards to seating configuration and its driving range.
As with its exterior, the Baojun E300’s modern interior design elevates the brand’s uniqueness to a new level. Although the overall layout is relatively straightforward, the interior of Baojun’s new vehicle stands out for including an ingenious arrangement of elements that are decorated with contrasting textures and colors.
The dash boasts a minimalist design, with a striking two-spoke multifunction steering wheel and a large screen installed just in front of the driver. As such, the car does not have a central control display, with only a single air outlet alongside an array of buttons and toggle switches to operate climate control functions. There is also no center console, which frees up space for the front occupants.
The standard Baojun E300 will feature a two-seat configuration and an unprecedented three-seater option, while the E300 Plus will come standard with four seats to meet the diverse demands of the market. Both models will feature Baojun’s latest smart connectivity system, which includes HUAWEI HiCar technology introduced worldwide on the new RC-6 in late 2019.
Regarding battery life, SAIC-GM-Wuling reports that the Baojun E300 has a range of 260 kilometers (162 miles) and the E300 Plus version will have a range of up to 305 kilometers (190 miles). Baojun is expected to reveal the rest of the details on the two versions of the upcoming E300 in the coming weeks, as its launch date in China approaches.
