Zotye Damai X7 Hits The Chengdu Auto Show In China

The new Zotye Damai X7 SUV debuted on the Chengdu Auto Show in China, looking surprisingly good in blue, although the wheels were far too small. The Damai X7 is a clone of the Volkswagen CrossBlue Coupe concept, marking the first time a Chinese auto maker clones a concept car. Congrats to Zotye! What’s next? The W12 Syncro perhaps?

Zotye is a cloning expert in any way, with a great like for the Volkswagen Group. They did the the SR7 (Audi Q3), Damai X5 (Tiguan), the Zotye T600 (Audi Q5), and will soon launch the SR8 Porsche Macan.

The Zotye SR8 will debut on the Chengdu Auto Show in early September and launch on the Chinese car market soon thereafter.

But there is bigger news: we hear that Zotye has decided to rename the SR8 to… SR9. No official confirmation yet but Zotye does this kind of fuzzy all the time, so we wouldn’t be surprised.

This Is The Zotye T700 SUV For China

August 11, 2016 by Tycho de Feijter

This Is The Zotye T700 SUV For China

Zotye is on a roll, launching one model after another, and then another one again. A few years ago many said (not us) that Zotye was going to die. But die they didn’t! Their EVs and SUVs are selling in great numbers, the brand is growing, and it finds buyers even in the big cities like Beijing.

Their latest new car is the Zotye T700, the production version of the Zotye T600 S concept. The T700 will be the flagship of the Zotye brand, until something bigger arrives. Happily it is not a clone. There are influences of Range Rover visible, but it isn’t as bad as with the Damai X7 and the Zotye SR8.

The latter was called T700 during its development process. Zotye, it seems, is getting confused; too many new cars and too many new names.
