Gyon Chinese Electric Car
Gyon is the name of a new Chinese electric car brand. The company is backed by Sitech, a mainstream electric car brand of the Chinese auto giant FAW Group. It will launch this summer.

Their first model will be revealed on August 8th in Los Angeles. Sitech CEO Jacky Xian and COO Joe Chao will host the event. Judging by a teaser it will be a luxury sedan with coupe-like proportions.

According to the available information, the Gyon vehicle will be a high performance, high-tech electric car. It will be able to travel between 310 and 435 miles on a single charge. Also, it will be pretty quick, accelerating to 62 mph in less than 4 seconds.

This Chinese electric car will be the first electric vehicle that is completely controlled by the company’s G-OS intelligent vehicle operating system. Gyon has not released any information regarding the operating system, but we can guess that it will be something similar to an in-car AI system, such as the one in the NIO ES8.

Additionally, the car will have a self-driving system sourced from Bosch, which makes sense considering FAW’s ties to Volkswagen. Bosch is now developing a Level 5 self-driving system. Simultaneously, Gyon announced that its self-driving system will be the “highest-level autonomous driving system in the world.” Therefore, maybe we will even see the Level 5 system in the new electric car from Gyon.

The design of the new Chinese electric car will be developed with the help of the world-class design house at Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters Inc. (GFMI), a Fountain Valley, California-based automotive fabricator. GFMI is an expert in low-volume projects and has built a number of concepts and prototypes for major automakers, such as Daimler and Ford. According to the press release, Gyon is entrusting GFMI to do the work on the upcoming car based on its engineering, prototyping and manufacturing expertise.

  1. Want to show and sell in the U.S., then why not choose a name that is (pronunciation-friendly) to its natives? Not a name beginning with a double consonant.
    Hyundai learned that lesson the hard way.
