On March 7th, GAC Aion’s AION Y Younger was officially launched at a price of 119,800 yuan, 20,000 yuan cheaper than the previously cheapest AION Y PLUS 70 Enjoyment Edition.
The body size of AION Y Younger is 4,410 x 1,870 x 1,645 mm, and the wheelbase is 2,750 mm. The three-dimensional dimensions are exactly the same as the current AION Y PLUS. The appearance of the new car is also consistent with the original model, and the headlights of the front of the car also use the design of “angel wing big eyes.”
AION Y Younger adopts IBCM design, which can unlock the door by simply approaching with the key, which is very rare in the same class of vehicles. After getting in the car, there is no need to click the start button. Just flick the gear to go.
The rear space of AION Y Younger is one of its major selling points. I recently rode in the back seat of the AION Y PLUS in Guangzhou, and the space is indeed one of the best in the same price range and class of SUVs. In addition, by folding the backrest of the front passenger seat all the way back, it can be fully connected with the rear seat, which is very useful for a nap.
The maximum power of the AION Y Younger motor is 100 kW, and the maximum torque is 176 N·m, which is lower than the 150 kW and 225 N·m of the AION Y PLUS series. The suspension remains the same, using the front Macpherson independent suspension and the non-independent torsion beam rear suspension.
AION Y Younger also uses the self-developed lithium iron phosphate battery by GAC Aion, with a capacity of 51.9 kWh, which can puncture the battery without catching fire, ensuring battery safety. It has a range of CLTC 430 km, slightly lower than the AION Y PLUS model.
In terms of color, AION Y Younger offers two exterior colors, “Divine Silver” and “Forever Youth,” five interior themes, and three wheel designs to choose from.
Lastly, if you make a purchase now, you can enjoy a 2-year interest-free car purchase privilege.
Following the AION Y and AION Y PLUS, the series has added the Younger model. Priced at 119,800 yuan, it is 20,000 yuan cheaper than the BYD Yuan PLUS in the same category. Its greatest advantage is undoubtedly the rear seat space.
In February, GAC Aion’s AION Y sold 12,996 units, a year-on-year increase of 335%. The AION Y series is undoubtedly the best-selling series among all GAC Aion models. As for whether the AION Y Younger will increase the sales of this series, we can only wait for the market to give us an answer.
