Beijing Auto BJ40 hits the China car market

The Beijing Auto BJ40 has been launched on the China car market. Price starts at 146.800 yuan and ends at 186.800 yuan. The coming of the BJ40 was delayed for many a times and we bet Beijing Auto is very happy they finally got it on the road. 

The Beijing Auto BJ40 debuted as the Beijing Auto Works B40 on the 2010 Beijing Auto Show, and over the years we have seen it testing all over the country. Interestingly, its appearance is basically unchanged and the engine is the same that ‘powered’ the 2010 concept.
