Published on April 22, 2011 by Tycho de Feijter

BC301Z hatchback and the BC302Z sedan both debuted at the Shanghai Auto Show. 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. The BC’s are meant for the cheap end of the market, price will start at only 50.000 yuan and ends around a still very cheap 75.000 yuan.
