Shortly after SAIC-GM-Wuling’s upcoming zero-emission MPV was first captured sporting the Wuling logo, General Motors’ China joint venture has just officially revealed the all-new, all-electric Baojun EQ100.
The automaker revealed the all-new Baojun EQ100 in the Asian country on May 10th, posting the first images and official information about the next member of its growing portfolio of all-electric vehicles. In fact, the EQ100 will kick off a commercial relaunch for Baojun alongside the all-new Baojun Yep, introducing a fresh corporate image for GM’s youngest brand in China.
As we could see in spy photos of the prototype captured last month, the all-new Baojun EQ100 is a subcompact-sized MPV with traditional proportions that include a raked A-pillar, a long wheelbase that creates short overhangs, and a generous glass surface. The EQ100’s body measures 169 inches long, 72.8 inches wide and 65 inches tall, with a 106.3-inch wheelbase.
Aesthetically, the all-new Baojun EQ100 features a new evolution of Baojun’s “Interstellar Geometry” design language with smoother lines and rounded shapes giving it a look that is both clean and minimalistic. Up front, two-tier lighting scheme, including a horizontal LED light strip up top and lower headlamp clusters, distinguish the EQ100 from the brand’s other models.
The horizontal lines present in the Baojun EQ100’s front fascia are replicated in the taillamp assembly at the rear, as well as the marked beltline that runs along the entire contour of the body. Also striking are the straight outlines of the windows, the recessed door handles and the floating-look roof, which on some versions will be painted a contrasting black.
The all-new Baojun EQ100 MPV will make its world debut and officially launch in the second half of the year in China, ushering in what would potentially be a new family of all-electric models from Baojun under the EQ nomenclature. Notably, the Baojun EQ100 represents the first all-electric multipurpose vehicle developed by SGMW, with which the company will compete in the popular MPV segment in China.
