Beijing Auto is working on a new BJ80V, based on the Beijing Auto Qichi S12 which is based on the good old Beijing-Jeep Cherokee. The B80V loox a lot like the Mercedes-Benz G-class sexed up with a Jeep-grille. Beijing Auto really likes Mercedes-Benz, earlier on they cloned the old B-class for the Beijing Auto E130.

Interestingly Beijing Auto also has a joint venture with Mercedes-Benz, called Beijing-Benz, which makes the C-class, E-class and GLK-class for the Chinese market. Beijing Auto, shows to be a good friend indeed…
