IM's electric cars will have solid state batteries, driving assistance systems and a host of connected services.

The name SAIC may seem unfamiliar to you, but this company has been present on the European market for many years. It has been producing cars of the British MG brand since 2007. SAIC Motor is one of the "Big Four" state-owned automakers in China, along with FAW Group, Dongfeng Motor Corporation and Changan Automobile.

The IM brand's entry into the European market next year was announced by MG. The first model, the IM L6 mid-size sedan, will celebrate its European premiere next week at the Geneva Motor Show.

IM stands for "Intelligent Mobility." The company said it will offer exclusively electric vehicles under its brand with a focus on new technologies and "exceptional driving experiences". The market launch will focus on sedans and crossovers.

IM models will be equipped with advanced driver assistance systems and offer smart and connected services. The IM L6 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in less than three seconds. Depending on the version, the car should be available with a lithium-ion or solid-state battery pack, with a range of 600 or 800 kilometres.

IM Motors was launched in China in 2020. In the domestic market, the manufacturer already offers three models: the L7 sedan and two crossovers LS6 and LS7.
