The Riich Z5 may have been on China Car Times several times before, but this is the first time that is has been shown in all its glory sans camouflage. The Z5 was initially going to be under the Chery brand, but with Chery launching a new luxury brand, Riich, it was obvious the Z5 would get ported over to that moniker.
The Z5 entered the world as the A6CC concept car, but with the launch of the Riich brand it became the Z5. However, lets look back at all of those famous Chinese coupes and roadsters that have been built over the past few years and reflect on their success. The Brilliance Coupe, sales were at one a month from March to May, but picked up in the summer months with 86 sold in June, 98 in July, and 136 in August, so hardly a massive winner for Brilliance. Lets have a look at Geely’s China Dragon, its an interesting looking car but sales are also not so stellar with just 54 units being sold from March to August. The BYD S8 never even made it to market, and the MGTF seems to have gone out of production in China with zero units sold this year. So is the Riich Z5 going to fare any better in a market that does not seem to take to Chinese built sports cars?
