Roewe is going to launch a new seven-seat SUV in China. The new car finally replaces the aging Roewe W5, pictured above. It will be called the Roewe RX8 and it will be launched on the Chinese car market late this year. The RX8 will compete with cars such as the Trumpchi GS8 and Haval H7L. Power will come from a new variant of the Roewe 2.0 turbo.

Alibaba and SAIC have jointly launched an ‘Internet Car’ in China, Alibaba says. The term internet car refers to the Internet of Things (IoT) where everything is connected; your smartphone with your car, your car with your home, and your home with your phone.
Alibaba has nothing to do with the actual car. It was designed and developed by the Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC). It is marketed under SAIC’s Roewe brand and sold via Roewe’s existing dealer network.
