China's WM Motors Unveils Fleet Of Affordable EVs

| |

A new Chinese automaker by the name of WM Motor has just shown off its upcoming range of affordable electric vehicles.

The company was founded by Freeman Shen, a former chairman of Volvo China who was instrumental in Geely acquiring the Swedish automaker. In last December, Shen created WM which stands for Weltmesiter.

Not to be confused with American auto firm of the same name, WM Motors aims to create mainstream vehicles that are cheap enough for average consumers to buy even without government subsidies. In November, the brand broke ground on a $1 billion Chinese production facility and intends on launching its first model in 2018 with an additional model launching every year through to 2025.

So far, four concepts have been revealed. The first is an MPV, the second an SUV, the third a high-riding estate and the fourth a sedan. All four adopt very similar designs and have been created by the automaker’s chief designer Sam Sun, Car News China, reported. 

Details about the models are scarce but alongside being fully electric, WM Motors says they will be highly connected, seemingly similar then to upcoming models from Geely’s Lynk & Co mobility company.

Expect to hear more about WM Motors in the coming months.
