Chinese cars to come to UK next spring

Chinese manufacturer Landwind says it will be ready to launch two models in the UK by next May.Managing director Paul Williams told whatcar.com that the seven-seater Fashion MPV and Expedition 4x4 have passed the European type approval tests that are required for mass-market sales.Mr Williams said the cars had gone through hundreds of changes and improvements to pass the tests and would get a three-star Euro NCAP rating. That's a far cry from the disastrous performance of the Landwind X6 4x4, which scored zero stars when tested by the German ADAC body for Euro NCAP in 2005.Williams said both petrol and diesel models would be available for the cars, which are likely to cost from around £9000. The ultimate ambition, said Williams, is to appoint 80 dealers across the UK and sell 8000 cars a year in this country.
