DETROIT (AP) - (01/16/18) - Chinese automaker GAC Motor says it's on track to enter the U.S. market in the fourth quarter of next year.

North American International Auto Show

Company officials made the statement Monday as they introduced two models at the Detroit auto show that likely will come to the U.S.

At a packed press conference, GAC showed off a gull-wing compact electric SUV called the Enverge, which is still in the concept phase. The automaker says it will go over 370 miles on a single charge. Also unveiled was the GA4 midsize sedan that will go on sale in China later this month.

GAC sold just over 500,000 automobiles in China last year, up 37 percent from 2016.

The company says it is negotiating with partner Fiat Chrysler about possible distribution of vehicles.
