Some people may confuse BAIC with BAW. In fact, these are two companies. BAW was mainly engaged in the development, production and sales of light off-road vehicles, trucks and related special vehicles before, and now it is gradually transforming into passenger cars and new energy vehicles. Earlier, BAW launched a smaller new energy vehicle Yuanbao, which is positioned as a 2-door-4-seat A00-class pure electric vehicle.
