Spy Shots: Guangzhou Auto Gonow GA6440 testing in China

Spy shots of the production version of the Guangzhou Auto Gonow GA6440, a new Chinese clone-car that will be launched on the Chinese car market later this year. The vehicle loox far too much like the Nissan NV200 MPV. Gonow is a subsidiary of Guangzhou Auto, specialized in making cheap SUV’s and pickup trucks. The Gonow GA6440 debuted as a semi-concept on the 2011 Shanghai Auto Show.

The Nissan NV200, made in China by the Zhengzhou-Nissan joint venture. Price starts at 79.800 and 130.800 yuan. Lone engine is a 113hp 1.6 liter four-cylinder. Gonow is not alone in its love for the Nissan NV200. BYD, the master of the Chinese clone, is working on its own version, and Yema has wild plans with the NV200 too. None however, is as far as Guangzhou Auto. What will power this clone is yet unknown, but Guangzhou Auto has enough engines that would fit, such as a 1.8, a 1.8 turbo and a new 1.5 and 1.5 turbo.

    This is nothing but the “GA6440” fron GAC Gonow, rumors and shots of which have been doing the rounds for about two years now. In fact, it was actually displayed at the 2011 Shanghai auto show.

    As a subsidiary of the high profile and more sophisticated GAC, it’s odd that Gonow gets to keep its tacky name, as well as to continue copying.
    And lately it seems to have shifted from light trucks toward minivans, at a time when new SUVs are hot.
