The E300 Plus is powered by a 40kW electric drive unit manufactured at Liuzhou AAM Automotive Driveline System in the State Level Economic Development Zone of East Liuzhou, in Guangxi Province.

“This is AAM’s third electric drive programme, our first in China and our first on a compact, value brand small passenger car,” said chairman and CEO, David Dauch.

“We will continue to see global electric vehicle demand and will support this growth with our compact, quiet and efficient drive technology.”

Electric drive is a range of electric propulsion solutions suitable for all hybrid and battery electric vehicle segments from mini vehicles to luxury crossovers.

The systems leverage the supplier’s experience in the design, analysis and processing of geared mechanical systems to engineer compact and efficient drive units.

Liuzhou AAM is a joint venture between AAM and Liuzhou Wuling Automobile Industry, a subsidiary of Guangxi Automobile Group.

Liuzhou AAM manufactures electric drive units, independent rear axles and driveheads.
