Shanghai (Gasgoo)- SAIC-GM-Wuling ("SGMW"), General Motors' joint venture with Chinese partners SAIC Motor and Guangxi Automobile Group, on August 3 announced the inauguration of Guangxi New Energy Automobile Laboratory, whose establishment was led by the automaker and involved several other entities.

At the initial stage, the newly-unveiled lab will have four sub-labs focusing on metal materials forming, applications of controllers and chips, intelligent speech technology, as well as power batteries and relevant core materials, respectively.
