Chery Beta 5 concept debuts on the Shanghai Auto Show

The Chery Beta 5 SUV concept debuted on the Shanghai Auto Show, previewing a new large Chery SUV that will be launched on the Chinese car market in 2015. The production version of the Chery Beta 5 will be positioned above the upcoming Chery Tiggo 5. The Tiggo 5 was expected to debut in Shanghai but didn’t show.

Note the male model. He is wearing black boots and black gloves. Waddis that all about? He a gardener?

The production version will be based on the same platform as the Tiggo 5, slightly stretched in all directions. Power will come from a 150hp 2.0 or a 130hp supercharged 1.6. The Beta 5 should be seen as a more luxurious and more upmarket variant of the Tiggo 5. Many Chinese automakers walk the same way, such as BYD with the up-market BYD S7 based on the mundane BYD S6.

Middle-tunnel very concept. Center console however loox production ready. Light-colored materials again, we are seeing that a lot recently in new Chinese cars and concept cars. The days of the ugly black plastic seem over.

    So many beautifully designed cars in China. So much old tech and engines.
    We need the Chinese to start competing in Europe – with pure electric, hybrids, diesels /dieselhybrid may be the next success combination for Europe (- look to Volvo and Peugeot/Citroën), and low, low, low Co2….

    Come on, we know you can do it. You don’t need a company in Israel to help you.
