LOS ANGELES — A new luxury electric car brand from China is getting ready to take on Tesla and others with a new high-tech electric car. The electric vehicle brand is called Gyon and will be launched this summer.

The EV startup is committed to providing electric vehicles with a design based on futuristic technology, according to the company. The launch press conference is taking place on August 8, 2018, in Los Angeles.

Although Gyon is a new brand, it is backed by major investor Sitech Electric Automobile, one of the fastest growing electric-vehicle companies in China. Sitech is the EV brand for First Automotive Works (FAW), one of China's biggest automakers.

Sitech is backed and founded by Guian New District Development and Investment Co., Ltd. The company is focused on the R&D of cutting-edge vehicle design, as well as the development of intelligent connected vehicles. Sitech will provide design, R&D and manufacturing for Gyon's planned intelligent electric vehicles.

The new electric vehicle will have unique features, such as high-performance, intelligent systems and an autopilot autonomous driving system. Gyon says the car will accelerate from zero to 100km/h within 4 seconds with a range up to 435 miles.

The new model will be the first electric vehicle that is completely controlled by the company's G-OS intelligent vehicle operating system, although Gyon has not released any details about the OS. Global auto supplier BOSCH will outfit the electric car with a high-level autonomous driving system.

Gyon also announced a design collaboration with the world-class design team at Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters Inc., a Fountain Valley, California-based automotive fabricator.

Gaffoglio has cooperated with luxury automakers Mercedes-Benz and Maybach on many concept automobiles. The company has more than 30 years of experience in design, engineering, prototyping, and manufacturing of vehicles.

The leading team at Sitech will also attend the Los Angeles event, including CEO Jacky Xian and COO Joe Chao. The executives will present their insights about the electric vehicle, as well as their strategic plan for the whole electric vehicle ecosystem Gyon is working on.

Earlier this year, Sitech opened its first office in Silicon Valley.
