Chevrolet To Demonstrate EN-V 2.0 In Tianjin, China
General Motors announced the launch of a two-week demonstration of the Chevrolet EN-V 2.0 (Electric Networked-Vehicle) concept electric vehicle, which will be used in the National Animation Industry Park and Eco-Business in the Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City.
The goal for this project is to understand consumers’ usage of low-speed transportation tools for their daily commute.
EN-V 2.0 has range of 40 kilometers or 25 miles. The small capsule takes only one quarter of a normal parking spots and looks sleek.
Matt Tsien, Executive Vice President of GM and GM China President stated:
“This is a step forward to realize GM’s vision for sustainable urban mobility in a practical way. We are pleased that GM’s partnership with the Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City Administrative Committee (ECAC) and Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City Investment and Development Co., Ltd. (SSTEC) can serve as the first step for realizing our vision in the real world. It represents GM’s commitment and effort to implement our ‘Roadmap to 2030’ that was rolled out following Expo 2010 in Shanghai.”
Ho Tong Yen, Chief Executive Officer of SSTEC remarked:
“SSTEC is very pleased to work with GM and ECAC to explore green solutions to urban transportation challenges. We welcome GM’s decision to use the Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City for the testing and demonstration of its new Electric Networked-Vehicle, and look forward to further expanding our cooperation with GM in the future.”
“The Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City is a landmark bilateral project between the governments of China and Singapore, with private-sector investment and development. Located in the Tianjin Binhai New Area (45 kilometers from Tianjin’s city center), the 30-square-kilometer Tianjin Eco-City is designed to create a harmonious and sustainable community that meets the needs of an urbanizing China. It aims to become a modern township where 350,000 residents can eventually work, live, play and learn.”
“SSTEC is the master developer for the Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City. It is a 50-50 joint venture between a Chinese consortium led by Tianjin TEDA Investment Holding Co., Ltd. and a Singapore consortium led by the Keppel Group.”
