This is the new Roewe 550L for China. It will debut on the Guangzhou Auto Show in November and launch on the Chinese car market in early 2017. It is a fine looking car with a wide grille flanked by LED lights and shiny bits in the bumper. Wheels however seem a tad too small.

Clone Country China is at in again; the latest victim is the BMW i3, ripped off by Chinese car maker Yema for a new compact hatchback code named B11. Yema though did make a few improvements: they added a proper set of doors and usable roof rails. Otherwise it looks horrible, with an ugly blue grille and wheels smaller than my scooter’s.

Spy Shots of the interior of the facelifted BYD Qin plug-in hybrid show a brand new dashboard with a giant Tesla-like touch screen in the middle.

BYD is working on a facelift for the Qin plug-in hybrid sport sedan, it will be launched on the Chinese car market in Q3. The facelift includes a new grille, a new rear bumper, new badges, and blue wheels!
The facelift comes at a curious moment; in April BYD launched the Qin EV300, a full-electric version of the Qin, which is based on the non-facelifted car. Are they going to facelift that one too, just two months after launch..?
