The Chinese car company GAC showed the public its new, high-tech electric car. The Aion Hyper GT was brought on stage, claiming, among other things, to be the production electric vehicle with the best aerodynamic coefficient on the market.
GAC, one of the biggest names in the Chinese auto industry, used the 2022 Guangzhou Motor Show to deliver one of its newest innovations to the world. A 100% electric car that stands out for more than just its looks or technology. The new GAC Aion Hyper GT is a very efficient model because it has the best aerodynamics on the market.
The company emphasizes that the new Aion Hyper GT electric sports car is an excellent example of what the Aion sub-brand stands for. The GAC Time concept model was shown off last year, and now we're looking at a car that uses a design language that has grown from that. The new Aion Hyper GT wants to be the best in its category by using the new language "Water Drop Shaped by the Wind."
Compared to GAC's other projects, the new Hyper GT electric car has different proportions and, most importantly, is built on a platform that is only used for battery electric cars. The GAC Aion Hyper GT has a design that allows for a longer wheelbase, short overhangs, and big wheels.
GAC says that the new Aion Hyper GT, which has a coefficient of drag of just 0.19X, has the lowest air resistance of any production car globally. It is a significant number because aerodynamics is essential in getting the best range in a fully electric car.
The curved shapes and softened edges of the outside make it stand out. The front headlights are designed to look a certain way and have a unique light signature. Even though the grill is closed, once the best speed is reached, it opens to make the car less windy. At the back, it's interesting that GAC didn't use LED lights connected by a light strip. It also has a rear wing that moves and opens up when the car goes over 80 km/h.
The new Aion Hyper GT electric sports car's front doors open like a supercar's. We also have 19-inch alloy wheels that look like the brand's work on aerodynamics inspired them. It looks better than the Audi e-tron GT.
The company also warns that the new Aion Hyper GT comes with a long list of driving help systems. These systems are made possible by a set of cameras, radars, and sensors.
We have a lot to learn about how the Aion Hyper GT's electric propulsion system works. The manufacturer has already said that the platform used can be set up with either one or two engines. You will also get to use technology that lets you charge very quickly and a system for swapping batteries. It was made for the Chinese market in particular.
