About SAIC SENOVA (Kunbao)
Founded in the 1990s, SENOVA(Kunbao) was originally a Swedish luxury car brand, the SAAB, which was later acquired by Chinese companies. SENOVA became the first mid-to-high-end vehicle brand of BAIC (BeiJing Auto).

At the 2012 Beijing International Auto Show, BAIC officially released the M-trix mid-to-high-end sedan platform with 100% independent intellectual property rights, “Originating from SAAB, higher than SAAB”, and announced the completion of the digestion, absorption and innovation of Saab technology.
