The Chevrolet Menlo “sporty-looking sedan” is based on a PATAC-designed concept crossover unveiled at the April 2017 Shanghai Auto Show, without a B-pillar, called the FNR-X Concept.

Chevrolet Menlo  China: February 2020

Initially being offered in Beijing, it is technically based on the all-electric Buick Velite 6 Plus with 110 kW motor marketed since October 2019, and it is priced lower than the Velite 6 with the 85 kW motor.  With 433L, the luggage compartment is 22L less, than that of the Buick.

“MENLO”, its inspiration comes from Menlo Park, a city in California, USA. The famous inventor Edison established a laboratory here and became an important symbol of the development of the second industrial revolution electrification.

Like the Buick Velite 6, the Chevrolet Menlo has three driving modes and three energy recovery modes. The economical, normal and sporty driving modes support base acceleration, standard acceleration and enhanced acceleration depending on users’ preferences. The energy recovery modes of light free recovery, medium efficient recovery and strong energy recovery likewise support personal preferences for a balance between driving performance and energy consumption.
