SAIC Motor delivers over 1,000 cars for pickup of CIIE guests
The Delivery Ceremony of Cars for Picking up Guests to the China International Import Expo (CIIE) was held at the Shanghai Exhibition Center on Sept 17, 2018. SAIC Motor Corporation Limited (SAIC Motor for short), as one of the leading domestic auto makers, delivered to CIIE more than 1,000 cars, consisting of both self-owned and joint ventures’ brands, such as the SAIC Roewe, SAIC Maxus, SAIC Volkswagen and SAIC-GM. The SAIC fleet will, on behalf of “Made in Shanghai” branded cars, take the honorable mission of picking up distinguished CIIE guests from home and abroad.
The first CIIE will open at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai) on Nov 5. As the world’s first national exposition themed on imports, CIIE marks a significant milestone in the history of international trade, and is one of China’s top four domestic diplomatic events this year. It indicates a landmark for China in pushing forward a new round of high-level opening up, as well as a significant move for the nation in driving the construction of an open global economy.
SAIC Motor has been sparing no effort to make CIIE a “high-level international exposition” by offering more than 1,000 vehicles to the exhibition, including Roewe e950, a plug-in hybrid electric internet-connected executive car, the Maxus V80, an internet-connected light passenger vehicle, the Volkswagen Phideon, a mid-size executive sedan, and Buick GL8, a large luxury MPV (multi-purpose vehicle). Guests to the exhibition will be able to enjoy a “green, intelligent and comfortable” mobility experience provided by the “Made in Shanghai” branded cars. In the meantime, SAIC Motor has established a professional team of nearly 1,000 people to safeguard the sound operation of these cars, including offering vehicle use training, vehicle maintenance, on-site technical support and 24h fast emergency response. It will also cooperate with Jin Jiang International (Holdings) Co, which is responsible for receiving State guests, and Shanghai Jiushi (Group) Co, which is in charge of forming a professional driver team, to provide high-quality and efficient pickup services for the exposition.
Roewe e950 is China’s first plug-in hybrid electric internet-connected mid-size car that leverages the internet and new energy technologies and redefines what a high-class sedan is. Its internet-based system, car performance and luxury configurations are some of its advantages that users look to when buying a high-class sedan.
SAIC Maxus V80 excels in possessing an intelligent-connected system, large space, comfortableness, high efficiency, low energy consumption, high durability and safety. It not only pioneers in applying automatic transmission to a light passenger vehicle, in using technologies that make the car conform to the national V emission standard, and in employing new energy, but it is also equipped with an intelligent-connected system and thus opens a new chapter for the development of the light passenger vehicle.
SAIC Volkswagen Phideon sets a new example for executive vehicles. It has earned a great reputation for its elegant and well-curved body, double-layer acoustical glass windows, self-closing doors, ventilated massage seats, and customized high-end audio system from the Danish brand Dynaudio. In addition, plenty of advanced high-tech and intelligent equipment in the vehicle provides passengers with ultimate security.
The large luxury MPV Buick GL8, created by SAIC-GM through its integrated application of advanced global resources and based on a brand new framework, is one of the leading auto brands in the domestic MPV market for its grand and elegant design, deluxe and comfortable space, high-level security, extraordinary power performance and abundant high-level technology.
SAIC Motor ranked 36th in the Fortune Global 500 list in 2018. At the upcoming CIIE, it will strive to demonstrate to global guests the strength and charm of the “Made in Shanghai” branded vehicles by offering intelligent and environmentally friendly cars and quality and efficient services, so as to help make the exposition a huge success.
