A joint venture between GAC, Mitsubishi and Mitsubishi Motors – known as GAC Mitsubishi Motors (GMMC) – has started production of the new Eupheme electric SUV in China.
The new model was designed by GAC, and is produced by GMMC in Changsha, Hunan. The electric SUV has a range of 410km (254 miles), and will initially be available in 12 cities across China. The JV plans to release the EV in additional locations in the future.
“The launch of Eupheme EV follows the Eupheme Plug-in Hybrid Electric (PHEV) SUV to market and it is an important milestone for GMMC,” says Mitsubishi Motors chief executive officer Osamu Masuko. “It demonstrates the critical role that EV technology will play in meeting Chinese consumers’ needs and contributes to the automotive industry in China. China is one of our most important markets and we look forward to greatly expanding our position in the country during our Drive for Growth plan.”
