The 1.0L engine is the one that is shared with the Hafei Lobo and thus is a well tested engine with plenty of spare parts available. The 1.0L will produce 50kw at 6000rpm and will be paired to a 5 speed manual.
The interior looks fairly well constructed, with plenty of round, cute lines, that are likely to find the Yue Yue with plenty of young fans, coincidently, Yue actually means pleasing, which is exactly what many buyers are expected to be when they pick up up this little baby.
Pricing is expected to be on par with the BYD F0 in the low 30,000rmb segment.

This is exactly a Chevy Beat rip off, right? One thing is for sure, they sure cannot make good grills. But they sure are so many compared to only Tata and Maini in India.

The previous Chery Fulwin was Chery’s first car they ever produced. Based on a legally bought Seat Toldeo platform, which was essentially second hand goods from VW, Chery envisioned their car building future would be bright and set about looking for an engine for their new Toldeo. They settled on the outgoing Ford Escort engine from Ford UK, as Ford UK were then gearing up to produce the Mk1 Focus, that engine line was suddenly surplus to requirements, Chery snapped it and moved the whole lot to Wuhu.
Fast forward a decade, Chery are one of the biggest independent car makers in China with a vast array (some say too vast) of cars that they offer, they’ve also just set up their own sub brands (Reely, Riich and Karry) which will offer their own ‘premium vehicles.
The Fulwin2 is a world away from the stuffy Toldeo based first generation Fulwin. It’s more rounded, its a more petite offering, it’s basically a whole new car. The Fulwin2 was launched last night in Suzhou city, along with its pricing which will see it go against the Brilliance FRV, and other popular sub 80,000rmb hatchbacks.

The Fulwin2 is priced as following:
  • Base model – 52,800rmb
  • Standard – 56,800rmb
  • Luxury – 59,800rmb
  • Aristocracy – 61,800rmb
At the moment, the Fulwin2 is based on a 1.5L engine mated to a 5 speed manual, an automatic version is due to be launched in the next few months.

Chery have apparently built the Fulwin2 around Chery’s own “Four S Principle’ which is
  1. Safety (built to 4 star crash protection, and built with same safety specs as other higher end Chery cars)
  2. Sporty (1.5L ATECO engine, and also the overall design of the interior and exterior)
  3. Science (again, the engine with its fuel saving abilities. Also low level of interior noise)
  4. Space – The Fulwin2 has a wheelbase of 2527mm and boasts a storage space of 450 litres, which can be extended to 1000L.

The Chery Fulwin2 is the latest small hatchback to roll out of Wuhu, and is up against some tough competition in a market that is already read hot. Competition not only comes from other domestic products, but also from foreign cars such as the Ford Fiesta, Mazda2, Chevrolet Aveo, and Hyundai Accent. Lets not forget that Chery also has some slight market overlap here with the Chery A3 and Chery A1 both of which are in a similar price bracket.

Fulwin2 looks like new polo to with different head light.
After a long reach by me I found that why chinese are copying very thing.
Since many don't know English and they were force to translate very thing in chinese in early days which has led them to copy and translate very thing they see .

Default What all does Geely get from Volvo??

Name:  geelyvolvo.jpg
Views: 2140
Size:  28.5 KB

Since early 2009 we have constantly hear rumours that Geely are planning to take over Volvo from Ford, eventually in late 2009 the deal was announced; Geely would become Volvo’s new master. A final price hasn’t been announced, but it is expected to be somewhere in the range from 1.5 billion to 2 billion RMB, considerably less than the 6 billion USD that Ford originally paid for Volvo.
The wording of the Volvo-Geely deal has yet to be finally announced, but some insider information that was leaked to the Chinese internet earlier today claims that:
  • Geely gets 9 products – S40, S60, S80, C70, C30, XC90, XC60, V50, V70
  • Three platforms – P1, P2, P24. The P1 platform is especially for compact cars, whilst the P2 platform is for larger sized cars
  • A worldwide dealership network of 2000 dealers
  • Access to Volvo supply chain, which will guarantee quality and delivery of products
  • All Volvo branding
The shopping list is fantastic for Geely, and will raise it from being a backwater car maker to an international player overnight. Geely are apparently hoping for world Volvo sales to hit 2 million units per year worldwide in the next 4 to 5 years, but in the meantime they are apparently aiming for sales of 1 million globally. Currently global sales of Volvo cars are at around 400,000 units, whilst China only accounts for a mere 13,000 cars. Geely are planning to give Volvo their biggest lease of life here in China by giving Volvo some more Chinese ‘design elements’ to make it more popular with local tastes, which doesn’t just mean they’ll be stretching yet more wheelbases to appeal to the Audi A4L crowd.
Financially speaking, Geely are apparently aiming to make a profit from Volvo within a year of ownership, and before 2015 they are aiming to get their investment in Volvo back.

The new car, codenamed MC6320A for now, measures (LxWxH) 3190mm x 1670 x 1610 and weighs 830kg.

Supposedly the car will come in 3 engine variants- 800cc; 1.0L and a 1.1L. The last two variants can opt for a CVT gearbox or will have the normal 5 speed manual.

The last I heard, there are close to 100 different manufacturers of cars / light automobiles.(For two wheelers there are approximately 400). Many of these are small and disorganized (owned by local governents) but are improving their skills exponentially. The government is encouraging them to consolidate though.
The Chinese government did the right thing by restricting company / factory ownership by foreign companies (i.e. they always need a chinese partner) which gave the chinese companies a foothold for western technology. Since most of these chinese companies have government stake in ownership they have no problem stealing / sharing technology without the consent of its western / eastern partner. The end result is that chinese designers and companies can form new companies with the knowlege gained and start a factory selling similar products with impunity (They don't worry about the flak they get from western media).

In the next 5 years the chinese auto industry will mature and consolidate and is likely to become a serious rival to western automakers. (It seems laughable now but people said the same about Hyundai a little more than a decade ago).
Compare this scene to India. We have hardly 2-3 manufacturers of indigenous vehicles. Now foreign automakers can own 100% subsidiaries here. (So no more new Indian enterpreuners can come up, even if they come up they will be snapped up by bigger firms with deep pockets, as happened to Reva). Do the original Indian vehicle designs match up to western designs? no way.some of them look uglier than the chinese. As one of my chinese friends told me,(Copying is a skill and you need to be good at it produce good results). How true..we are not even good at copying. Now if we open our market to chinese made cars, our market will be flooded with chinese made Indian looking cars at cheaper price and our auto manufacturing will collapse in no time. The chinese are better at adapting to any market than us, they are better at assimilating technology than us. No manufacturing means no jobs and therefore no money to buy these cars again.

I would say keep the Himalayas up and strong. So that at least there is the greatest physical barrier between us and chinese goods. I hope more Indian enterpreuners come up with their original designs.

Its not the Pulsars or Gulsars and anything else! Its the newly launched Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4, that has been cloned by a Chinese barber. He has spent some US $ 14000 for his job and is quite happy about it. For more please view:
