Zotye are a small but plucky company that have managed to ride the waves of the Chinese auto market with relative ease, especially difficult as they are in the shadows of some larger, more ruthless competitors. Their latest model is the below Zotye T600 SUV which was unveiled several years ago at the Beijing Auto Show as a concept but failed to make it into production until earlier this year. What is underpinning this SUV is still a mystery, Zotye did buy a few Lancia platforms from Fiat previously so it maybe a Lancia based product.
Engine power comes from a self developed 2.0T engine producing just 177bhp which seems relatively low in what soon will be 2014 – but it is more than enough for China. Power from that turbo will sent through automatic and manual gearboxes.
The T600 will be on the market in early 2014 without fail, and on the international market shortly afterwards.
