It goes without saying the obvious, but it is clear that China wants to be, if it is not already one, one of the main protagonists of electric mobility. Every day there are new proposals from the Asian country. Electric SUVs, saloons and compacts that seek to attract with an interesting value for money. The GAC Aion Hyper SSR takes a radically different approach. His goal is none other than speed, aspiring to become one of the fastest electric cars on the planet. Your cover letter could not be more interesting.
Almost always when we talk about the GAC company, it is to refer to rational technologies or models, such as the GAC Aion with 1,000 kilometers of autonomy or its new LFP batteries with 20% more energy density. However, GAC knows the importance of attracting attention with extraordinary products. those whose orders do not crowd dealers, but they serve to create a very powerful brand image. This is where the Hyper SSR that has just been introduced comes into play.
The first thing that catches your eye is its design. Although it does not leave behind its Asian design concept, there is no doubt that it is the most attractive GAC of all that we have seen to date. Aggressive and sharp, the body barely leaves the ground. Do not think that it is a prototype, because it is not. The Chinese company has plans for its manufacture, in fact it announces that the assembly phase will begin sometime next yearalthough everyone knows that there will not be many units produced.
And it is that nothing in the GAC Aion Hyper SSR is discreet, neither its bodywork nor its price. The brand has put a price that is not affordable for this electric supercar: 1.7 million yuan, which in exchange comes to about 240,000 euros. It is a lot of money, of course, but if we compare it with other models of a similar cut, as is the case with the Rimac Refrigerator, we see that it is still a bargain. In fact, the arrival of a more decaffeinated version of rear-wheel drive has been announced that would start its price at 180,000 euros.
The secret of the Hyper SSR lies in its high performance electrical scheme. GAC has not provided many technical data, but it has pointed out some figures that make it very clear that its creature must be taken very seriously. The most powerful of the range will offer all-wheel drive and a power output of 1,225 horsepower, which (according to official data), will allow it to accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in just 1.9 seconds. The top speed has not been specified.
One of the coolest details of the GAC Aion Hyper SSR is its scissor doors. With vertical opening, they hide a minimalist and sporty interior. It features state-of-the-art technology specifically focused on conveying a racing atmosphere to the two occupants. The pilot has digital instrumentation with an 8.8-inch screenwhile all functions are centered on a huge 14.6-inch panel located in the center of the dashboard.
