Chevy unveils the Menlo, its first EV for the Chinese market

Chevrolet has unveiled its first fully electric vehicle for the Chinese market, the Menlo. Chevy teased pictures of the vehicle back in August, when it announced it would only be available in China.

The new EV has a range of up to 410 kilometers (255 miles) on a single charge. The Menlo comes with the new-generation MyLink+ infotainment system and includes a virtual car key, remote control, and voice recognition. For the aesthetics, Chevy borrowed the sporty looks of the Chevrolet FNR-X all-purpose sports concept vehicle.

Chevy expects to launch the Menlo in the first half of 2020.

    Too bad GM is blowing it (again) in the US. Not only sucking up to tRump, but no new EV for the mainland.

  • Jon Carr

    GM sucks the US tax payer bails them out and they build plants in China and insult us by building and selling the EV only in China.

      China’s a better market for EVs. Most automakers are taking losses on EVs in the U.S., because otherwise they’d be priced too high for the ordinary consumer. In China there are a few hundred million people who can afford the Menlo at a price point where GM makes money on it. The Chinese government has a policy of transitioning the country to EV. This will give you an idea of the low numbers on U.S. EV sales, except Tesla. https://cleantechnica.com/files/2019/10/US-EV-Sales-Q3-2019-Zach-Shahan-CleanTechnica.png
