New GAC EA6 electric sedan turned out to be a clone – DRIVE

The EA6 has its own quirky face and original stern design. But the rest of the body panels copy Aion S. The rookie is 32 mm longer than the original, the other dimensions are the same: 4800 × 1880 × 1530 mm, wheelbase – 2750. Curb weight – 2090 kg.

The GAC Honda joint venture has certified a “brand new” GAC EA6 battery-powered sedan in China, due to hit the market in early 2021. The local press unanimously shouts that the EA6 is the twin of the Aion S (2019) from the GAC NE (New Energy) division. Both appearance and characteristics confirm the fact of cloning.

The boot lid has not changed, and the lights without a connecting light guide are new, as is the bumper with lights embedded on the sides. The size of the tires for the twins is the same – 215/55 R17, 235/45 R18. Both are available in two colors with a black roof.

Sedan GAC GA6 (4891 × 1850 × 1505 mm, between the axles 2815) seems to have nothing to do with it. It is equipped with a 1.5 petrol turbo four (169 hp, 265 N • m), a six-speed “automatic” Aisin and front-wheel drive. Prices start at 108,800 yuan (1.26 million rubles). Arrival to Russia is probable.

Powerplant Jaka EA6 produces the same 135 kW (184 HP, 300 N • m). Therefore, the battery is 58.8 kWh, which means a range of 460 km (NEDC). Aion S costs 146,800-205,800 yuan (1.7-2.4 million rubles) and is in good demand for an electric car. From May to December 2019, 32,126 units were sold. Now about 3700 cars are sold per month. Unsurprisingly, the GAC decided to include a clone in its core lineup.
