Brilliance-BMW Zinoro 60H

BMW has released new images of the new Zinoro 60H for China. The 60H is the production version of the Zinoro Next concept, it is based on the new long wheelbase BMW X1 Li. Zinoro is a sub brand of the Brilliance-BMW joint venture making new-energy vehicles (NEV’s). Their first car was the lease-only Zinoro 1E, based on the old BMW X1. The 1E will be discontinued.


The Zinoro 1E was a full-electric, the Zinoro 60H is a hybrid. The lease-only construction will be killed off, the 60H will be sold like any normal car via BMW dealers.

The drivetrain consists of a 136hp 1.5 liter turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine aided by a 15hp electric motor, reaching a total of 151 horses.  Zero to a hundred will take 7.6 seconds, fuel consumption will be 1.8 liter per 100 kilometer, and range on pure electric is claimed to be 60 kilometer.


The interior looks surprisingly low tech for what is supposed to be a high tech vehicle. The screen is tiny to the absolute max, and even smaller than the already rather small screen in the X1Li. It also had an outdated gear lever instead of a fancy drive-selector knob. Wuzzy. Arm rest looks kinda weird too.


The long-wheelbase makes for a lot more space in the back but BMW is tricking us a bit, the rear bench has been pushed back as far as possible, and he front seats were moved forward a lot. It looks like this in the 3Li.


New skin looks all right, one could even argue it looks more cohesive than the messy X1. Proper roof rails too.


Blue lights are the trend for new-energy vehicles and Zinoro joins the party. Double sun roof to look at the bright blue Chinese skies.

    […] Erste Fotos vom Zinoro 60H: Die chinesische Marke ist ja bekanntlich ein Joint Venture von Brilliance und BMW, unverkennbar teilt sich das neue Plug-in-SUV dann auch seine Gene mit dem X1. Dabei ersetzt der Zinoro 60H mit 60 km E-Reichweite den vollelektrischen 1E, der noch auf dem alten BMW X1 basierte. Den Verkauf übernehmen dann auch gleich die Händler der Münchner. Denn so richtig rund stromert es nicht. carnewschina.com […]

    […] First images of the Zinoro 60H: Being a joint venture between Brilliance and BMW, the Chinese brand’s plug-in SUV definitely shares some DNA with the X1. The Zinoro 60H with 60 km of purely electric range replaces the fully-electric 1E, which was based on the previous generation of the BMW X1. carnewschina.com […]
