New electric vehicle brand launched
To promote its new, high-end EV brand invested by SITECH, GYON held a launch press conference and signing ceremony to officially release the brand and announce its concept car design in collaboration with Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters, Inc. (GFMI). The co-founder and president of GYON, Joe Chao; former global president and CEO at Chrysler, Tom Lasorda; and the executive team of GYON appeared at the ceremony.
The slogan of GYON, "Right Is Our Niche," promotes the fact that the brand is looking for new opportunities in China's high-end automobile market. "We want our customers to feel happy and satisfied," said Chao. As a new energy automotive OEM, GYON says that it offers a portfolio of smart EV passenger cars that deliver reliable performance, top-quality, customer-driven features, high-tech connectivity, chic design, five-star safety, and hassle-free experience.
The design of the new concept car will be provided by GFMI, a product developer that has developed many concept automobiles worldwide. GYON's first high-end concept car is anticipated in 2019.
GYON said its products will cover three mainstream market segments: sedan, SUV, and crossover. The company is developing a GYON Operating System (G-OS), which is an approach that uses data-based logic to mimic human cognitive capability. The EV also has new hardware. Its battery pack can be charged to 80% within 10 minutes and fully charged in 15 minutes, and it can support 360-372 miles of driving.
GYON is planning to introduce nine models in the next eight years to the Chinese market and aims to sell more than 400,000 vehicles to the markets.
