hawtai b11 300x225 Hawtai B11 sedan launched, priced to fightHawtai sucesfully launched its first sedan yesterday, the B11, and its pricing was announced at the same time. The B11 is Hawtai’s first sedan and is being aimed squarely at Brilliance’ models in terms of pricing and technology, Hawtai are launching the diesel and petrol versions at the same time which will be China’s first diesel sedan equipped with an automatic gearbox, a petrol model and also the option of manual and automatic gearboxes for both models. The 2.0T diesel engine is Hawtai’s own model and appears to pack quite a punch, bhp figures seem quite low at 150bhp but then you can see the torque is high at 310Nm. The petrol version is supplied by SAIC and is good for 160bhp and 215Nm of torque.

Pricing is as follows in China:

  • 1.8T manual – 119,700rmb
  • 1.8T automatic – 129,700
  • 2.0T manual diesel – 133,700
  • 2.0T automatic diesel – 143,700

With pricing being so aggressive, Geely will no doubt have trouble with their EC7 and EC8 series of cars which are priced at around the same price, and also the Roewe 550 which is priced a little higher but shares the same engines, and also the recently launched Guangzhou Auto Trumpchi sedan series.
