2018 Hanteng X7 Flagship SUV Launched On The Chinese Car Market

Hanteng Auto’s second model X5 will be sold tomorrow. Liao Xionghui, Vice President of Hanteng Auto told reporters that, Hanteng will launch two new models of X5 and X7S this year and it will also take efforts in alternative energy area at the middle of October. He has great confidence in accomplishing the annual target. It’s known that the second phrase project of Hanteng Auto Industrial Park, located in Shangrao, Jiangxi Province with a total investment of RMB 10b has begun construction. It will provide an annual capacity of 300,000 units for traditional and alternative energy vehicles, which is expected to be put into operation in 2018. Hanteng Auto will have a total annual capacity of 450,000 units after the completion of project, providing more capacity for the launch of new models. It’s known that Hanteng Auto is actively applying car qualification. Besides, it has begun research work and will export vehicles to overseas market in the next year. Hanteng X7 DM PHEV version, three hybrid PHEV version and EV version have been released and are expected to be launched in the year. In the future, Hanteng Auto will also launch X5 BEV model, alternative energy MPV and large-size B-class alternative energy SUV models. The new Hanteng X7 SUV has been launched on the Chinese car market, and that means we now have four X-Sevens in China; the Hanteng X7, the Lifan Maiwai X7, the Landwind X7, and the upcoming Zotye Damai X7. Design of the Hanteng X7 is a tad too close to the Volkswagen Touareg, with some BMW and Audi thrown into the mix. Not bad, but pretty generic. The Hanteng X7 is the first child of a new car company called Hanteng Autos, with an S at the end. The Chinese name is Hanteng Qiche, full name is Jiangxi Hanteng Automobile Corporation, founded in 2013 in the great city of Shangrao in Jiangxi Province. Next up is a compact SUV. Name is yet unknown, but we bet it will be called Hanteng X5. The interior is all right. The black plastics look rather cheap, and the steering wheel doesn’t look very 2016. The fake wood is good. Touch screen is big enough. Dials are analogue. The Hanteng X7 is available with two engines: a 1.5 turbo with 150hp and 215nm, and a 2.0 turbo with 190hp and 250nm. The 1.5 turbo is mated to a five-speed manual and the 2.0 turbo to a six-speed DCT. The engines are sourced from Mitsubishi, manufactured in China by the Shenyang-Mitsubishi engine-making joint venture. This outfit sells engines to almost every small Chinese automaker. The 2.0 turbo for example also serves under the hood of the… Landwind X7 and the Zotye Damai X7. Same engine, same name. Same same. Hanteng name in English on the back. The company hasn’t opened a dealer in Beijing yet and I doubt they ever will. This sort of cars from this sort of brands usually stays near the second tier cities where they were born.

2017 Brilliance Shineray SWM X7 Interior and Exterior

The new Brilliance-Shineray X7 MPV has been launched on the Chinese car market, looking rather good with a large grille, usable roof rails, sporty alloys, and racy red brakes. Price starts at 85.900 yuan and ends at 106.900 yuan. The X7 is positioned for some serious battle, right amidst the ultra hot mini MPV segment. Names combining letters and numbers are not protected in China, so we now got five X-sevens on the market! The others are the Hanteng X7, the Lifan Maiwai X7, the Landwind X7, and the upcoming Zotye Damai X7. Brilliance-Shineray is a joint venture between Brilliance Automotive and Shineray Motorcycle Company, one of China’s largest motorbike makers. They make a range of minivans and mini MPVs under the Jinbei brand, which is owned by Brilliance. SWM is a new sub-brand. It comes from the Italian motorbike maker SWM Motorcycles, which was bought by Shineray in 2014. That’s why the X7 has an Italian flag on the front fender. SWM stands for Sironi Vergani-Vimercate Milano (SV-VM SVVM SWM), the names of the founders of SWM combined, with the two Vs combined to a W. Sineray changed the meaning to Speedy Working Motors after they bought the company. But, surprise surprise, it has a new meaning again; it now means Start, Win More. The Italian flag on the front fender. There are two engines available: a 1.5 turbo with 156hp and 230nm, and a 1.8 with 137hp and 185nm. ‘Boxes: five-speed manual or six-speed automatic. Size: 4710/1855/1770, and wheelbase is 2750 The interior looks very good for the segment. Materials and quality are impressive. Color scheme a tad too dark in this car, but we bet you can get something lighter too. Eye catcher is the giant 12 inch touch screen that controls everything except the air conditioning. Naturally the infotainment system shows the radio, which is the only thing 99% of Chinese car buyers uses the system for. They do the rest with their iPhones. That font looks very familiar! And Brilliance didn’t have to look far for the example, as they have the Brilliance-BMW joint venture with BMW. There is an Italian flag to the right of the 7, sure BMW likes that one a lot. Not sure what the M is for. There is no sport or M version in the lineup. Brilliance claims that BMW is “assisting with quality control”. That is not impossible, but even if they do, it seems unlikely they would approve this badge-nicking. On the engine cover: “Originated From Italy”. Grammar is wrong. And it is not true. SWM Motorcycles didn’t make any car engine. As far as we know the engine was developed in China by Brilliance. Maybe they ate pizza when they designed the pistons.

This Is The New 2018 Geely Emgrand GSe Electric Crossover

This is the new 2018 Geely Emgrand GSe, a full electric variant of the Emgrand GS crossover. The Engrand GSe will be launched on the Chinese market on June 9 for about 110.000 yuan after subsidies. The GSe gets a new front bumper and grille, but looks otherwise exactly the same as the GS. Power comes from an electric motor with 160 hp, which is impressive for the segment. Geely claims that the battery pack weighs 380 kilo, with an energy density of 120wh/kg. Range is 353 kilometers. Range with a constant speed of 60 km/h is 460 kilometers. The 60 km/h thing is an unofficial, and seemingly meaningless, standard used by many Chinese automakers. The interior gets a trendy drive selector dial instead of a gear lever, but is otherwise unchanged compared to the GS. New equipment includes an anti PM2.5 air purifier, wireless charging, and an updated voice control system with the catchy name of Ni Hao. The new Geely Emgrand GSe electric crossover from China.
