Lifan X50 Shows Us That Lifan Can Design Cars

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

Lifan’s car range to date has been a little bit underwhelming, with designs that fail to resonate but keen pricing Lifan has become a popular brand in overseas developing markets but has remained a minnow swimming  with sharks in its own domestic market. The X60 SUV was one of the best looking vehicles to date from Lifan but it will probably be outshone by this new X50 which was spied not too far from the Lifan factory in South West China.

The X50 may have a hint of Kia in the rear, but the rest of the car seems to be relatively unique. Power will come from a 1.5L engine with a 5 speed gearbox and CVT on offer, but we can expect more engines later, possibly even a turbo unit. When will it launch? Expect to see it towards the end of the year at the Guangzhou Auto Show in November.
