Yema Auto disappointed on the 2015 Chengdu Auto Show in China. Chengdu is their home town and they normally go mad with wild concept cars and such more. Not this year and not this time. All they had was the Yema E70 EV and this updated M302 MPV.
These are the very first images of the new Yema T80 SUV for China, featuring a large black grille with a thick chrome edge, mean looking headlights, a bumper with LED lights, a trendy C-pillar, and sporty five-spoke alloys. The Yema T80 will debut, likely in concept form, on the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show starting later this month.
The Yema T70 SUV has been launched on the Chinese car market, one full month earlier than expected. The Yema T70 is the first all-new Yema passenger car since 2008, standing on a new platform and powered by new engines. Design is a curious mix combining influences from Range Rover, Volkswagen and Audi. Price starts at 79.800 yuan and ends at 118.800, cheap enough to make the eager Yema dealers happy.
This is the Yema T70 EV, an electric car for China based on the petrol powered Yema T70 SUV. The T70 EV is scheduled for launch on the Chinese car market in April, just one month after the planned launch of the much-delayed T70. Yema says pre-production of the T70 EV has started in a brand new factory in Mianyang in Sichuan Province with a capacity of 120.000 cars a year.
The new Yema T70 SUV, eagerly awaited by Yema dealers throughout China, will be launched on the Chinese car market in March 2015. The T70 is an entirely new vehicle standing on a brand new platform, and that doesn’t happen very often at Yema. Design is a curious mix combining influences from Range Rover, Volkswagen and Audi. Nevertheless, this is the best looking Yema ever.
When in Guangzhou we went for a visit to the local Yema dealer. Yema cars are very rare up north, not a single dealer in the Beijing area, but they are quite common in the west and south. The dealer was located in a neat facility close to a large cluster of other car shops of all kinds. Inside were four Yema F12 SUV’s, and nothing else.
Yema is China’s most notorious clone automaker. This time they go for the Suzuki SX4, making a near-perfect clone with only a slightly revised front and rear end. The yet nameless clone is an electric vehicle, powered by a 67hp electric motor mated to a lithium-ion battery.
The Yema C30 EV debuted today on the Chengdu Auto Show in China, protected again by a red fence on shiny-gold poles. Too bad, because the Yema C30 EV is an interesting car…
It debuted originally as a concept with a petrol engine on the 2011 Chengdu Auto Show. Yema received a lot of criticism because it looked a tad too much like the Audi A4. Yema didn’t care and launched an electric variant in 2012, called the F16 EV.
The Yema C18 SUV debuted today on the Chengdu Auto Show. The Yema C18 is a concept previewing a new sporty compact city SUV that will be launched on the Chinese auto market in late 2015. Yema didn’t let anyone near the vehicle, protecting it with a red fence on shiny-gold poles. Headlights look hip. Huge air intakes sporty.
