Guangzhou Automobile Group Co., Ltd (GAC Group) is showing the Trumpchi GS5-BEV Pure Electric Vehicle Concept at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The electric SUV concept is based on the conventionally-engined Trumpchi GS5 SUV which was introduced in March of 2012.

Jointly developed by GAC Engineering and AC Propulsion, it is powered by AC Propulsion’s Gen 3 Integrated Drive & Recharge system, featuring a high efficiency induction motor and highly integrated power electronics unit. The high speed motor provides instantaneously available 225 N·m (166 lb-ft) of torque and up to 150 kW (200 hp) of power.
The Power Electronics Unit integrates the motor drive electronics and onboard charger functions to minimize system costs. An 18 kW charger allows recharge times as fast as 2 hours and features bi-directional power capability—thus Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G), Vehicle-to-House (V2H) and Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) power flow are all possible.
The 35 kWh Li-ion battery pack is mounted low for vehicle stability and is managed by ACP’s “LOM” monitor and control system. The high efficiency of the system and excellent energy management enable the vehicle to achieve a driving range of 100 miles (161 km) with a single charge of the battery.
