Zotye to launch four SUV’s in China within this year

Zotye to launch four SUV's in China within this year

China’s infamous Zotye Automobile has big plans for 2016. It will launch four SUV’s, of which two are brand new. The party starts in April at the Beijing Auto Show with the facelifted Zotye T600 SUV, fitted with a new fully digital dashboard.

Soon after that it will be the turn of the Zotye T600 Sport, a sporty variant of the facelifted T600. The T600 Sport, alternatively called the T600S, should not be confused with the Zotye T600 S concept, which is a entirely different and much bigger car.

In the fourth quarter it is time for the Zotye T700, pictured above, a near perfect clone of the Porsche Macan. Pre-production has started and Zotye is clearly not afraid of any lawsuits.

Then finally near the end of the year the Zotye T300 SUV will be born. This car was so far unknown, and we haven’t seen any spy shots yet. It will be a sub-compact SUV selling in the 50.000-60.000 range, powered by 1.1 and 1.3 liter petrol engines.

Officially Official: the interior of the new Zotye SR7 SUV for China

Zotye has released the first official photos of the interior of the new Zotye SR7 SUV, formerly known as the Zotye S21. It was about time, because they didn’t show sheep when the production car was unveiled last month. The most eye catching part of the interior is the truly gigantic 12 inch touch screen for the infotainment system. Other cool includes the red line over the entire width of the board, the shiny part of the center tunnel, the somewhat weird handlebars on each side of the gear lever, and the black leather seats with red stitching. Let’s get back now to that lever:
