  • Price Reduction - Supporting the switch to greener motoring

    Manufactured by SAIC Motor Corporation Limited, MAXUS is actively driving the transition to greener motoring for organisations, businesses, and individuals. The brand recently announced its most significant price reduction yet on all its models, aligning with its mission to make greener transportation accessible to all. 

    Behind MAXUS' commitment to accessible eco-transportation lies SAIC's strategic integration of in-house technology and its prestigious Lighthouse factory status. 

    As a member of the Global Lighthouse Network (GLN) of advanced manufacturers, leading companies like SAIC are leveraging cutting-edge technologies like AI and digitalisation to drive profitable growth and minimise the environmental footprint of manufacturing processes. In 2021, SAIC bolstered its commitment to innovation by establishing an in-house Research and Development (R&D) team focused on AI, big data, cloud computing, and cybersecurity. This strategic move was aimed at accelerating the development of new energy intelligent connected vehicles, further driving down costs and expanding accessibility. 

    With SAIC ramping up EV production for European markets, this trend toward lower production costs is expected to continue, translating into more affordable options for customers.
