The details of this one are a little hard to decipher, but the main point is clear.

GAC Motor

(the

Chinese automaker

that also uses the Trumpchi brand name) will attend the

Detroit Auto Show

again for 2019, and will be bringing an electric

concept vehicle

called the Entranze.

We’ll get the confusing stuff out of the way. GAC has referred to the Entranze as an “

MPV

” which we first took to mean “

minivan

,” but

this full press release

refers to it as an SUV. (Our money is on

crossover

.) While GAC doesn’t explicitly say the image above is of the Entranze, it doesn’t appear to be from any of its other vehicles. Either way, the Entranze a seven-seat people-hauler, which GAC describes as “a hyper-modern family vehicle.” We’ll have to wait until Monday to find out if it has side windows, unlike the

Enverge concept

GAC showed in Detroit last year.

To be unveiled at GAC’s

NAIAS

press conference on Monday, the Entranze

EV

will have a focus on technology, including an electric powertrain and automated driving capabilities. It was designed by GAC Executive Design Director Pontus Fontaeus at the automaker’s Los Angeles design center. Fontaeus has done design work for

Volvo

,

Ferrari

,

Kia

and, most recently, Faraday Future as that company’s interior design chief.

GAC will also bring two other relatively

new vehicles

to the Detroit show: the

GS5 crossover

, which debuted at the

Paris Motor Show

last year, and the

GM6 minivan

unveiled in China earlier this month. Monday will be both vehicles’ North American debut.

GAC has set its sights on the U.S. market, with plans to sell vehicles here in the near future. At the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, GAC Vice President of Engineering Zhang Fan said the company would release a gasoline-powered SUV first — as early as Q4 of this year. He said that will be followed by an electric SUV in 2020 or 2021. Perhaps the Entranze will preview that second offering.
