Brilliance to Use BMW’s N20 2.0T Engine to Develop High End MPV

Share Our Knowledge With Your Friends, Contacts And Co-Workers

Out of the German brands so far only Mercedes have entered into the MPV making business, despite Audi’s dominance in the business area in China they haven’t yet developed an MPV for the market, rumors of a BMW-Brilliance tie up to develop high end MPV’s have been circulating for a number of years but with little fire coming from the rumor mill despite the plumes of smoke on the matter.

BMW are now planning to expand their relationship with their joint venture partner Brilliance which also owns the Jinbei range of MPVs. Jinbei’s current range is built on the back of older Hi-Ace MPV technology but that is apparently going to change with the introduction of a new high end MPV that will be built with BMW’s assistance and also using BMW’s latest N20 2.0T engine that is currently featured in the Chinese market X1 SUV, 3-Series and 5-Series sedans.

    From ITALY -
    Le automobili cinesi diventano sempre più interessanti. Credo che tra 10 anni i marchi cinesi presenti sul mercato europeo saranno davvero tanti, con molte auto interessanti. Devono solo sviluppare maggiormente le motorizzazioni diesel, attualmente poco diffuse sulle auto cinesi ma molto richieste sul mercato europeo.
