Published on September 2, 2011 by Tycho de Feijter
The Youngman Lotus L5 Sportback debuted at the 2010 Beijing Auto Show. The production car will be listed on the Chinese car market on September 23. Engine: 1.6 with 93kw and 149nm. Price will start from around 70.000 yuan.
Youngman-Lotus makes Proton cars in China. Malaysian Proton is also the owner of British sportscarmaker Lotus. Youngman therefore decided to run the Lotus-name on all China-made Protons and registered the name Lianhhua (lotusflower) before Lotus did. Lotus had to find another name when it officially entered the Chinese market earlier this month.
