The facelifted Roewe 550 debuted on the Shanghai Auto Show in near-total darkness. What is, Roewe trying to hide? The facelift has done well to the old 550, making sure it can continue at least another two years. Biggest changes are up front with a new grille, headlights and bumper.

This must have been a very painful birth. We saw the very first spy shots of the facelifted Roewe 550 in… November 2011. Since then we have seen various prototypes testing around, including a completely-ready example in the Shanghai subway.
But no matter how many test cars we saw, the facelifted Roewe 550 never made it to the Chinese car market yet. The latest we saw were the patent drawings which appeared in January of this very year. Chinese media now report the facelifted Roewe 550 will finally debut on the Shanghai Auto Show that starts next week. Hurray.

The Roewe E50 EV was launched on the Chinese car market yesterday for 234.900 yuan or 37.600 USD. ChinaDaily reports today that green-car subsidies can get the price down with 100.000 yuan, or 16.000 USD. That leaves a ‘real price’ of 134.900 yuan or 21.600 USD. The E50 suddenly sounds like a much better deal…

The Roewe E50 EV has been launched on the Chinese car market, price is 234.900 yuan, or 37.600 USD. Not cheap for such a small vehicle, but it is only the second proper electric car on the China auto market after the BYD e6 which was launched in October last year. Various subsidies will get the price down a bit but SAIC hasn’t named a number.

The new Roewe 950 was launched on the Chinese auto market in April but the old Roewe 750 still soldiers on. New spy shots show a 750 wearing Shanghai-badges, indicating SAIC wants to sell the 750 under the yet to be resurrected Shanghai-brand. Much earlier on we saw spy shots from a Roewe 950 wearing Shanghai badges but it hasn’t be launched yet.

The Roewe E50 EV will be launched on the Chinese auto market on November 2. The market for electric cars is however very small in China so Roewe only plans to sell 1000 cars over 2013. The electric motor has 63hp, maximum speed is 130km/h, range is 190km. Fast charging takes 30 minutes for 80%. No number available yet on charging on 220v, which the market needs to know, since there are next-to-zero fast charging station in China. Via: Autohome.
