The very first live shots of the new Beijing Auto BJ80C, ready for its official debut on Monday on the Shanghai Auto Show. The BJ80C, formerly known as the BJ80, formerly known as the B80V, is a new medium-sized SUV with a rugged off-road look, looking much less like a Mercedes-Benz G-Class than on earlier spy shots.
The Senova EV200 electric taxi is part of a pilot project consisting of 500 cars that will be put to work in the southern suburbs of Beijing. The project is a continuation of a similar scheme with 200 Beijing Auto E150EV (the predecessor of the EV200) that started last year in the north eastern suburbs.
The new project was announced on the very last day of 2014 but it hasn’t officially started yet. The example I found in Fangzhuang is probably one of the first cars to hit the road.
This is the Beijing-Jeep BJ2022 Heroic, a rugged looking concept based on the Jeep Cherokee XJ that debuted on the 2010 Beijing Auto Show. The vehicle was developed by Beijing-Jeep, a Chinese-American joint venture between the Beijing Automotive Industry Corporation (BAIC) and the former Chrysler Corporation. The JV manufactured the Cherokee XJ in China.
The first Spy Shots of the Beijing AutoSenova D80 testing in China. The D80 will be the flagship of the Senova brand, it debuted as a semi-concept on the Guangzhou Auto Show in November and it will be launched on the Chinese car market in the second half of this year.
This is the new Beijing Auto Huansu H6 MPV for China, seen on the same supposedly secret product presentation where we also met the production version of the Huansu S6 SUV. Huansu is a new sub brand under Beijing Auto. The Huansu series are manufactured by Beiqi Yinxiang Automobile, a joint venture between the Beijing Auto (Beiqi) and the Yinxiang Motorcycle Group. Huansu means ‘Magic Speed’.
