Guangzhou-based automaker GAC Motor will return to the 2018 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit with its entire lineup and several new vehicles, after showing off a limited number of vehicles at the show in recent years.
GAC Motor will be displaying its new MPV GM8 minivan, the seven-seat SUV GS8, the GA8 luxury sedan, and an electric concept car targeting the next generation of U.S. drivers.
“We are privileged to be able to showcase our new models to U.S. customers once again at the grand trade fair that gathers the world’s top automotive manufacturers,” says Yu Jun, president of GAC Motor. “The U.S. has one of the most advanced auto industries in the world; its consumers have reached a social consensus on the essential attributes of cars. Entering the U.S. market is an essential step for GAC Motor to bring premium vehicles to global consumers that adapt to their needs.”
GAC Motor has sold more than 460,000 vehicles from Jan.-Nov. this year, a 38.9 percent increase compared to 2016. The company has established sales and services networks in 14 countries supported by key global suppliers, covering the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe, Africa, and North America.
