GM’s newly expanded design studio in Shanghai will likely play a key role in its electrification plans

Early July saw the opening of General Motors’ new design facility in China. The new GM China Advanced Design Center marks a doubling in size and capability over the original centre opened in 2012. Located at GM China’s headquarters in Shanghai’s Pudong New Area, the facility covers 5,000 square metres.

The facility will likely play a key role in GM’s electrification plans. China is already the world’s largest new energy vehicle market, and GM will channel that into the direction of future electric and autonomous vehicles. “Innovation allows us to adopt the best solutions available in a quick and agile way. More important, it will allow us to stay proactive in exploring synergies across the regions, to help us drive the once-in-a-century transformation of our industry,” says Julian Blissett, GM executive vice president and president of GM China.
