SAIC-GM-Wuling (SGMW) has announced that its cumulative electric vehicle sales in China have exceeded 1 million units.

Since 2017, SGMW has introduced eight EV models in China, from the earliest Baojun E100 to the best-selling Wuling Hong Guang MINIEV. The latter has been the new energy vehicle (NEV) sales champion in China for 22 consecutive months since its launch in July 2020.

The success of Wuling and Baojun EVs is based on SGMW’s locally developed Global Small Electric Vehicle (GSEV) platform, which offers significant economy of scale and production flexibility. To build on its strength in EV production and sales, SGMW has announced plans to expand its NEV offerings to include hybrid electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid vehicles in China and start EV production overseas.

Production of the Wuling Air EV, SGMW’s first EV model manufactured outside China, began on August 8 in Indonesia. ​

Based in Liuzhou, Guangxi, SGMW is a joint venture founded by GM, SAIC and Guangxi Automobile Group in 2002. In July 2017, SGMW Indonesia was established to sell Wuling passenger cars and commercial vehicles.
