This is not a weird Chinese concept car. This is the crazy new Baojun 510, a new SUV that will be positioned below the Baojun 560. And where the latter looks good but boring, the 510 looks mad. Check those headlights and the bonnet!
The main light units are in the bumper. The wheel arches are straight on top. The mirrors are huge. Only bad is the D-pillar, which gets the same design as literally every new Chinese SUV. They all use the same design studio, it seems.
Alibaba and SAIC have jointly launched an ‘Internet Car’ in China, Alibaba says. The term internet car refers to the Internet of Things (IoT) where everything is connected; your smartphone with your car, your car with your home, and your home with your phone.
Alibaba has nothing to do with the actual car. It was designed and developed by the Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC). It is marketed under SAIC’s Roewe brand and sold via Roewe’s existing dealer network.
The once brilliant Dalian Classic Car Museum has been closed. The private owner is in prison for killing his brother and won’t get out anymore. The collection has been removed from the museum’s buildings and the cars are being sold off. It seems very unlikely the collection will ever come together again.

New Spy Shots of the all new Baojun E100, a new electric vehicle for China. The new photos show that the small city car is pretty much ready to roll. It will debut on the Beijing Auto Show in April, and launch on the Chinese car market the second half of the year.
The new Wuling Baojun 330 sedan has been launched on the Chinese car market, and we are just as excited as the car is exciting. Buyers in the segment where the 330 sells are generally rather conservative in mind and wallet, but the 330 is likely too boring even for them.
