Trumpchi is an automotive marque owned by the Chinese automaker GAC Group.[1][2] It was launched in December 2010.

History

GAC began the construction of facilities to produce vehicles for a new own-brand automotive marque in 2008.[3] The first Trumpchi model to go into production, the Trumpchi Sedan, a four-door mid-size saloon car model based on the platform of the 2010 Asian Games in October 2010.[3]

The Trumpchi Sedan was formally unveiled to the public at Auto Guangzhou in December 2010,[4] and public sales of the vehicles began in the same month.[5] The Trumpchi GS5, a sport utility vehicle based on the same platform as the Trumpchi Sedan, was launched in March 2012.[6][7]

Trumpchi made its first ever appearance at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January 2013.[8] The Trumpchi NEV E-Jet extended range hybrid electric sedan concept car made its world debut at the show.[8][9]

The production version of the Trumpchi GA3 compact sedan was unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show in April 2013.[10][11]
