Beijing Auto BC301Z & BC302Z to debut in Shanghai

Beijing Auto’s new duo, the BC301Z hatchback and the BC302Z sedan will both debut at the Shanghai Auto Show next week. The BC’s stand on a new platform and look at least a bit like the Benz B-class. Beijing Auto and Mercedes Benz have a joint venture in China called Beijing-Benz. They make the C-class, E-class and soon the GLK for the Chinese market. Benz likely ain’t too happy with these new cars from their ‘partner’…
