The 350 was based on the Roewe N1 concept car that was shown at the Shanghai Auto Show last year. The concept itself was the epitome of 3G lifestyle, and as a result the Roewe 350 DVD/GPS system is actually running on Google’s very own Android system. The 350 will be able to get all the latest real time traffic reports so drivers can avoid certain spots, the system also allows for direct web access from your car, and oddly it allows you to chat online which is something you really don’t want to be doing when you’re driving. The 350 will be running the 2.1 Android operating system, which is the same as what you will find in Google’s latest Nexus handset.
The 350 will launch with a 1.5VVT engine, but a 1.5 Turbo engine is also in the works according to various different media outlets. The 1.5l engine is good for 105bhp and 135Nm of torque making it great for inner city jaunts. Pricing for the car is expected to range from 70,000rmb to 130,000rmb, and will no doubt sell over 5000 units per month easily.
