SOL (Sihao) e-vehicle
JAC-VW's first vehicle appears in MIIT's latest notice badged as "SOL", the joint venture's new brand. The Chinese name is Sihao (思皓). A new logo is seen as well. However, this Refine S2-based model's name is indistinct and cannot be discerned from the image.

Re: Volkswagen & JAC EV cooperation (SOL)
This is just a rebadged JAC IEV7S. I cannot imagine that this is the result of a new fruitful cooperation.

SOL (Sihao) E20X
The model, according to MIIT, will be called E20X; range is published as 302 km, up from 280 km for the JAC iEV7S. A 41 kWh battery pack is provided (iEV7S: 39 kWh)

Re: SOL (Sihao) E20X
Echoing Erik's viewpoint, I fail to see the point of the SOL E20X. If all you have to do is replicate a local car that is already selling in the market, why go for a joint venture with a foreign company if you do not get access to that foreign company's superior product or tech? If JAC wanted to sell a slightly revised IEV6S/IEV7S, it could have done so by its own means -- why need VW? On the other side, it is not like VW was in dire straits in China and desperately needed a hot-selling model in its lineup to shore up revenues and profits; the VAG group sold 4 million cars in China last year, and the iEV7S (or even the Refine S2 for that matter) is hardly among bestsellers. It is also not like JAC did not have a clue about electric vehicles and VW was generously handing down some wondrous fairy-land "electric mobility" tech down to its new partner.

I guess only future SOL models will tell where this partnership is going.

Re: SOL (Sihao) E20X
A JV with a questionable objective indeed.
It sharply contrasts with the BYD-DAIMLER JV, to build the Denza, a dedicated effort to combine technology, and manpower. Unfortunately the Denza has not done well, and I expect this iEV7S copy will do even less well.
