SAIC, GAC boost deliveries on expanded lineups
Automotive News China | 2017/8/8

Two state-owned automakers, SAIC Motor Corp. and GAC Motor Co., reported strong July sales as their proprietary brands expanded their crossover lineups.

Last month, combined sales of SAIC¡¯s Roewe and MG brands shot up 85 percent year on year to 37,068 vehicles. For the first seven months, the two brands delivered 270,690 vehicles, more than double their sales from a year earlier. 

Roewe has gotten a lift from its new i6 compact sedan and a battery-electric version of that car. The brand also introduced an EV version of its RX5 compact crossover, and last month it rolled out the redesigned Roewe 950 midsize sedan.

Meanwhile, MG added the ZS compact crossover to its lineup in March. 

GAC also has enjoyed strong sales. Last month, the company¡¯s Trumpchi brand delivered 38,965 vehicles, up 28 percent from a year earlier. For the first seven months, Trumpchi sales surged 52 percent to 289,843 vehicles. 

Trumpchi has expanded its lineup with the new GA8 midsize sedan, plus a plug-in hybrid version of its GA3S compact sedan. 

The two automakers hope to maintain sales growth by rolling out several new models this year.

SAIC plans to launch eight new and upgraded models under Roewe and MG.

And GAC plans to start selling two new models, the GS3 compact crossover and the GS7 seven-seat SUV, this month under Trumpchi.
