Exhibits of the 2012 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition


G70 is a next-generation global compact car which realizes ultra-low fuel consumption by pursuing weight saving and aerodynamics. By making its weight as light as 730kg, improving the aerodynamics, and equipping a 800cm3 direct-injection turbo gasoline engine and an Engine Auto Stop Start System with regenerative braking, it realizes low emission and fuel consumption of a hybrid car.

Swift Range Extender

Designed primarily for day-to-day tasks such as shopping and transporting passengers, Swift Range Extender can cover about 30km*3 (JC08 mode) on a complete battery charge. With an engine-driven generator starting to charge the battery when it runs low, the driver can make longer journeys without worrying about a flat battery.
