The final-final production version of the Beijing Auto C70G debuted last month on the Guangzhou Auto Show, where it was called Beijing Auto Shenbao D320. The name led to confusion because it didn’t seem to make any sense. Beijing Auto is apparently confused as well and comes yet again with new names, see below. The Guangzhou-car had a new grille, this white vehicle however got the ‘old’ grille again. Beijing Auto will apparently use both, the old grille for the cheaper versions and the new grille for the expensive version.

New spy shots from the Beijing Auto Shenbao D280 testing in China. ‘Shenbao D280’ is the new name of the production version of the Beijing Auto B70G that debuted at the Beijing Auto Show in April. The Shenbao D280 is based on the old Saab 9-5 and will be launched on the China auto market late this year.

The Beijing Auto B70G debuted at the Beijing Auto Show in April, it is based on the old Saab 9-5. It will be launched on the China auto market late this year so Beijing Auto is working hard to get it ready.
The name ‘B70G’ will completely go, the production car will be called Shenbao (绅宝). Interestingly, Shenbao is the old Chinese name for Saab, which changed to a new Chinese name ( Sabo (萨博)) in the late 1990’s. Beijing Auto got the car and the name, what could possibly go wrong?

The Beijing Auto C70G debuted today at the Beijing Auto Show, it will be listed on the China car market by the end of this year. The C70G is based on the old Saab 9-5 but its loox were much better than expected, the old Saab turned into a sleek sporty sedan with an especially well-designed front. Great job.
