GM China shows off electrified vehicles in Shanghai

As of earlier this year, China is General Motors‘ largest new vehicle market, as measured by new model sales. Given the company’s focus on electrification, it makes sense that GM would want to show off some electrified vehicles there. That’s just what happened as an “electrification workshop” in Shanghai, recently. And in true GM form, a different make nameplate represented each powertrain type.

In China, “mild” hybrids are represented by an updated version of the Buick LaCrosse eAssist that will go on sale in China in October. The improvements to the model, which debuted in China in 2011, include an increase in highway fuel economy to about 45 miles per gallon. Then there are the “normal” hybrids, represented by the Cadillac Escalade Hybrid, and the world-famous Chevrolet Volt was, of course, the extended range plug-in of choice. Finally, GM China is showing off the Sail Springo electric vehicle. That model, first unveiled in concept form in late 2010 and officially named late last year, has an 80-mile single-charge range and a top speed of 80 miles per hour.
