GYON, a new luxury electric vehicle startup, held its launch press conference last night in Los Angeles. The company announced its concept car design in collaboration with Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters Inc.(GFMI), a renowned automotive fabricator that helped design the famed Dodge Viper sports car.
Like Tesla, GYON is the latest company outside of traditional automakers that is entering the growing electric vehicle market. Other startups include SF Motors, Lucid Motors, Faraday Future and Fisker.
To promote their newly high-end EV brand invested by SITECH, GYON held a launch press conference and signing ceremony to officially release the brand and announce its concept car design in collaboration with Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters, Inc. (GFMI) on August 8th, 2018.

The slogan of GYON is “Right Is Our Niche,” which promotes the fact that the brand is looking for new opportunities in China’s new high-end electric automobile market.
The design of the new concept car will be provided by GFMI, a worldwide well-known product developer that has developed many outstanding concept automobiles. GYON’s first newly high-end concept car will be launched in 2019.
GYON did not reveal an actual vehicle at the event, only a teaser image. GYON’s products will cover three mainstream market segments: sedan, SUV, and crossover. GYON is developing a GYON Operating System (G-OS), which is an approach that uses data-based logic to mimic human cognitive capability. Also, GYON’s EV vehicle has fantastic new hardware.
