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

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.

    Weichai has been trying to break into the carmaking business for years. Now they are almost there…… while everyone else is headed in the other direction, toward “consolidation”. :-o

    Now, I am very confused.

    While it is true that in dimensions, this SUV stays close to the Jinbei S30, but its exterior styling is different. I have seen this exact styling in an electric car, which was advertised by Sichuan Eastman, a truck manufacturer. You can see photos here:

    Great finds! I didn’t know of this company, but I will visit them ASAP.

    Anyway, there is a company in Jiangsu that are also prepping to create a similar vehicle, I will try to find out their name ASAP
