Gac Aion E-SUV LX in the future with 1.008 km range-aion

In November 2018, GAC Motors announced the Aion S as Tesla competitor. The electric SUV GAC Aion LX was presented at the time with a battery pack of up to 93 kWh (CATL cells) in connection with a 300 kW all-wheel drive system (in the top version). In space was a range of 650 km. With the battery upgrade to 144.4 kWh, the Stromer is now able to.008 km to cover. Mind you, in the NEDC cycle that is still common in China.

Positioned as a mid-size SUV, the Aion LX measures 4.786mm length, 1st.935 mm width and 1.685 mm height with a wheelbase of 2.920 mm, which is comparatively close to the NIO ES6. Other key competitors include the BYD Tang EV600 and the Roewe MARVEL X. In the new edition as a “Plus” version with a 144.4 kWh battery, the electric car relies on a battery pack that is said to have an energy density of 205 Wh/kg. Furthermore, the lithium-ion cells used should be based on an NMC cathode in conjunction with a silicon-containing anode.

The technology used should make the batteries lighter and smaller and improve energy density, power and performance in cold temperatures. The increased energy density means that the size of the battery unit has been reduced by 20 percent and the weight by 14 percent. This also leads to the already mentioned range increase from 650 to 1.008 km.

The Aion LX Plus will be unveiled at the Guangzhou Auto Show on March 19. expected November. The price has not yet been communicated. For classification, it should be said that the Aion LX is around 31.130 to 47.400 euros moved. It is known that GAC will launch all of its electric cars under the “AION” brand in the future. Another electric SUV for the Chinese market follows with the GAC Aion LX Plus. Up to 12 AION models are currently being discussed.

  1. 700 kg battery is a pretty heavy house number.
    Nevertheless, I find a possible range of 1000km very good as the next step towards e-mobility.
    With large, fast-charging batteries, the total number of expensive charging points or charging stations required can be reduced to an economically justifiable level.
    Frequent, long-lasting recharging and short range are still a counter-argument for e-mobility today.

  2. Well, these mileage figures are of course pure nonsense, but with a consumption of 30 kWh/100 km at a brisk motorway speed, the car drives a real 450 km to the first stop without being on the last groove. This gives you an estimated 70% more range compared to the Model Y. And the price will be similar. That won’t be fun for Tesla. For the Skoda Enyaq or ID.4 would then be 20k price difference, so they are not at risk.

  3. It would probably be more intelligent to build two BEVs from these batteries. But since 90% of all people think they drive 500 km a day, this is probably the biggest problem that still has to be solved today. At least you take the range argument out of the mouth of the petrol sniffers once more. But that makes no sense at all

  4. The larger the BATTERY, the fewer charging cycles you need within a week and the longer it lasts.
    If I want to go on vacation with this car, I don’t want to charge it every 400 km for 8 hours, so it’s nice if the battery is big.
    If the batteries are full in 10-12 minutes and can withstand 1000 charging cycles, then even small batteries are completely sufficient… I don’t want to change the BATTERY every 5 years for €10,000 just because I drive a lot and therefore charge every 2 days.
