Debuting at the 2023 Auto Shanghai show, the GAC Van Life concept was designed to be an autonomous vehicle that allows people to travel long distances and go wherever they want. This is made possible with a next-generation solid-state battery, which is safer, ultra efficient, longer-lasting, and more environmentally friendly than traditional lithium-ion batteries.
Plus, many of its parts are made from recycled waste materials like plastic, aluminum, and carbon fiber, thus making the vehicle lightweight as well as range-efficient. The interior showcases an orbital frame concept with a structure that surrounds the cabin and allows for simple attachment / detachment of various items. Step to the side, and you’ll find benches that can be folded out and slid out of the car. Universal magsafe technology enables passengers to charge their personal devices while using them. There’s no word yet on pricing or availability.
- 350W Motor: 18.6 mph, 40-mile range, 220 lbs load.
- Efficient & Portable: 38.6 lbs, easy maneuvering, one-click folding.
- Safety & Comfort: Anti-Lock brakes, shock absorbers, 10'' tubeless tires.
This concept-car highlights what is great about being able to go wherever you want to. We believe that cars are not just objects that move people from A to B, but also machines that create good memories.” said Stéphane Janin, Director of GAC Advanced Design Milan.
