Electric Car Makers Woo Chinese Buyers with Range, Features

Monday, 15 April 2019 09:38 PM

SHANGHAI (AP) — Automakers are showcasing electric SUVs and sedans that with longer driving range and luxury features at the Shanghai auto show to appeal to Chinese buyers as Beijing slashes subsidies that have propelled demand.

Communist leaders wanting China to lead in electric vehicles have imposed sales targets. That requires brands to pour money into creating electric SUVs and sedans to compete with gasoline models on price, looks and performance at a time when they are struggling with a Chinese sales slump.

General Motors, Volkswagen, China's Geely and other brands are displaying dozens of models, from luxury SUVs to compacts priced under $10,000, at the Shanghai show. It opens to the public Saturday.

Some of the electrics promised up to 500 kilometers (360 miles) on a charge.
