Spy Shots: Zotye T600 SUV is Ready for the China car market

New spy shots show that the new Zotye T600 is ready for the China car market, it will be launched on December and price will start around 100.000 yuan. The Zotye T600 debuted as a concept on the 2011 Shanghai Auto Show. The Zotye T600 is the biggest Zotye so far. It will compete with fine cars such as the BYD S6 and Brilliance V5.


Power comes from a 1.5 turbo with 147hp, mated to a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic. FWD is standard, AWD optional. The 1.5 turbo is developed by Zotye but based on the Mitsubishi-sourced 120hp 1.5 that powers the Zotye Z300.

Chinese media say the Zotye T600 looks far too much like the Audi Q5. They have a point. Even more interesting is a comparison on size:

T600: 4635/1903/1660, wheelbase is 2807.
Q5      : 4529/1898/1655, wheelbase is 2807.

The similarity reveals that Zotye much have used a real Audi Q5 as a model for the T600. All the hard points of the chassis are likely the same as well.

    With this crossover, low profile Zotye will finally break away from its old Daihatsu-based flagship,the 5008. At the same time it can’t seem to break into the realm of originality.

    Is it just me, or does the front look an awful lot like a VW? I think the T600 concept was more like the Q5, while the production model looks more like a VW.
