GA8 set for general release late April 2016
GUANGZHOU, China, April 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — In the months before the Second G20 Sherpa Meeting, held from April 6-8 in Guangzhou, China’s leading automaker GAC Motor delivered 40 of its GA8 sedans to be used as official service cars during the conference.
As GAC Motor’s latest high-end sedan, the GA8 made its recent debut at the National Party Conference (NPC) and Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) meetings in Beijing in March. Featuring an original design, state-of-the-art technology, and a high safety rating, the GA8 is also fuel efficient and eco-friendly.
With world-class chassis design and power and electronic systems, and top quality materials in the interior that provide the most comfortable ride and driving experience, it has been described internationally as a pioneer in China’s high-end automobile market.
The premier forum for international economic cooperation, the G20 gathers national leaders from across the world, many of whom, including the Saudi finance minister Ibrahim Abdulaziz Al-Assaf, expressed their delight and surprise at the quality of a Chinese brand being used as the official service car at such a prestigious international event.
“We are very proud that the GA8 was chosen as the service car to support the Second G20 Sherpa Meeting as well as the annual NPC and CPPCC meetings,” said Wu Song, general manager of GAC Motor. “By making a strong appearance in the high-end service car market, the GA8 shows that GAC Motor is fully capable of developing the best automobiles to compete with international brands.”
The fastest growing automobile brand in China, GAC Motor has released several best-selling cars in its short history. Named by Yahoo Finance as ‘China’s New Benchmark Setter’ in 2015, the company incorporated some of the world’s best technologies to develop the GA8, bringing together all its resources to create the new generation elite sedan.
“In order to establish a foundation, it is crucial for us to develop several high-end products that can compete in the international market,” said Wu. “GAC Motor has made its way by perfecting its custom production system — called GPS — its global research and development system and its worldwide supply chain while constantly seeking technological advances that provide our consumers with world class cars.”
After providing successful support for the NPC, CPPCC and G20 Sherpa meetings, GAC Motor is set to release the GA8 model on the market later this month.
