Published on March 9, 2012 by Tycho de Feijter
What a day! Today indeed, marks the first time I write about Jonway Automobile on this website. Therefore I say: “Welcome Jonway”, and good news it is; the new Jonway A380 has been officially listed on the Chinese car market, price starts 80.800 yuan and ends at 99.700 yuan.
Jonway Automobile is a small carmaker from Zhejiang Province. They started with cheap pickup trucks and agricultural SUV’s and then went into ‘real’ passenger cars. Jonway got infamous in the early 00’s with the UFO which looked exactly like a 3-door Toyota RAV4. The first A380 looked exactly like a 5-door RAV4… The new car however that you see here on these pics has a little bit more style of its own.
Big screen, shiny fake chrome!, that is what the Chinese car buyers likes, and so gets. Engines are sourced from Mitsubishi: 1.6, 1.8 or 2.o. Transmission: 5-speed manual or 5-speed automatic. The A380 is FWD only.
