Lincoln arrives in China for the Chengdu Motor Show

That is, very fast. Ford announced only two days ago that the Lincoln brand would come to China in 2014. Today we see the first pics of three Lincolns arriving at the exhibition hall for the Chengdu Auto Show that starts tomorrow.

Yema M31D

Here we have another secret MPV from Yema Auto, it will debut tomorrow at the Chengdu Auto Show, it is called the Yema M31D, which sounds hot.

Chengdu Auto Show Preview: new MPV from Yema

Yema MPV from China

This must be one of the biggest surprises for the Chengdu Auto Show that starts tomorrow. News about Yema however can’t wait a minute more. This is an entirely new small MPV, a sort of vehicle that Yema doesn’t make yet. They kept it very secret up until now, we haven’t seen any spy shots or patent applications. It loox very ready for production but when it’ll hit the market is yet unknown.

Size-wise it seems to be about as big as all other Yema’s, meaning the platform is likely Austin Maestro again. Yema got two engines now; an old 1.5 originally developed by Toyota and a 1.5 turbo based on the Toyota unit that was developed by Yema itself. More details will follow soon…

Jonway clones the Suzuki Jimny in China

It never ends… Jonway has applied in for patent for a new Jonway A280, which loox very very much like Suzuki Jimny. Well, we are glad to see that Jonway is diversifying, their A380 is a copy of the old Toyota RAV4. Jonway however didn’t do a 100% copy-paste, they thought the Jimny a bit too small and therefore stretched it up around the B-pillar.
