2016 Beijing Motor Show – preview
The highly-anticipated 2016 Beijing Motor Show will kick off later this month and the cars scheduled to make an appearance are slowly increasing. To help you get the most from this year’s event, we’ve decided to put together a short guide with some of the most exciting vehicles set to appear at the show.
The Zotye SR8, which made headlines earlier this week, will make its official debut in Beijing this month. What makes it special, you might ask? It’s the fact that it looks exactly like the German Porsche Macan.
Zotye is renowned for its copycat vehicles, having produced a number of suspiciously familiar cars over the years. Although they normally do well on the Chinese market, the never quite make it as exports.
Whether the SR8 is well received or not remains to be seen, regardless it’s definitely going to make things a little more interesting.
If you’re familiar with the history of the German car industry, then you’ll probably recognise the Borgward name, which has appeared in Germany years ago in the form of a brand.
The Chinese manufacturer, BAIC, is trying to resurrect the name by realising a vehicle named Borgward BX7.
Although the new car has nothing to do with the German brand, BAIC is attempting to use the name in order to create a little buzz.
Designed by one of the former Saab designers, the vehicle will likely be sold outside of China at some point in time.
Chery Tiggo 7
The former best-selling Chinese brand, Chery, is making a comeback this year with an all-new SUV in hopes in returning to its former glory.
With spy shots giving very little away, we will have to wait for the event to find out more about the vehicle.
BYD Qin EV300
With electric vehicles slowly taking over the market, it’s no surprise China is attempting to break into the market. The BYD e6 actually did pretty well around the world, with many units used as taxis across the globe.
Hoping to introduce the vehicle on Western markets, the brand will reveal the all-new all-electric Qin EV300 at some point during the event.
With more than 20 million cars sold in China last year alone, we can probably expect the 2016 Beijing Motor Show to be very exciting. The list of vehicle scheduled to appear keeps growing, so we’re definitely in store for a few surprises.
Which cars are you most looking forward to seeing at this year’s event? Are there any you’d consider buying? Let us know your thoughts
