Weichai have aspirations beyond being one of the biggest Chinese parts suppliers, they hope to join the rest of the industry in making cars.
The new SUV has been codenamed S201 internally and will be put under the Ying Zhi name when it comes to the market in mid to late 2014.
Weichai have officially – on the quiet – named the car ‘YZ6410YFAB0Z’ which will be produced in Chongqing City under the production plants at Jiang Ling Chuan Jiang Automotive Productive plant.
The exterior of this new SUV is on par with Jinbei’s own compact SUV. The trucklet measures in at 4066*1737*1657mm with a wheelbase of 2502mm and will have a total weight of 1206kg. Power plants come from a domestic Minyang 1.5L petrol engine producing 102bhp.
