This is the first time we see the vehicle in red, and where I normally like red I think the lines of the Eado XT show their best in white or silver.

Dash is the same as in the Eado sedan. Materials are a bit too black but quality seems good enough. Large screen in the center console for the infotainment system. Automatic gearbox here.

The Eado range is also an important part of Chang’an’s plans for the invasion of Europe, which also include the new Raeton sedan. The plans however have been pushed back by the continuing economic crisis in Eruope where nobody seems able to sell cars. But when things get a little bit better Chang’an will move in.
