GM launches new Baojun brand in China with a tour of the new mid-size 630 sedan and 120 new dealers.
GM has officially launched a national tour of the Baojun 630 mid-size sedan, which is the first model from its new Chinese Baojun brand. The Baojun 630 will be targeted initially at customers in China's second and third-tier cities with over 120 new dealerships opening their doors throughout the launch tour. This event also provides potential buyers a chance to preview the car, which has been described by GM China Group President Kevin Wale as "high-quality and affordable transportation."
Under the hood, the Baojun 630 gets its power from a 1.5-liter P-TEC engine producing 109hp and is mated to a five-speed transmission. GM states that the P-TEC engine meets Euro IV emissions standards and also offers a more fuel efficient ride than its competitors. Three trim levels are available for the Baojun 630 which is priced from $9,758 to $11,467. After the initial launch tour, GM will continue to debut the car in first- and fourth-tier cites.
