FAW’s B50 delayed.
August 01, 2008 - According to the Southern Daily’s reports, FAW’s new small sedan, the Besturn B50 has been delayed slightly although the exact date of it going on the market is currently unknown.
The Besturn B50, projected to be launched at the end of this year, will probably be put on sale in the beginning of 2009. FAW Car intends to maintain Besturn B50’s reliability through more tests, according to Yu Yang, vice marketing director of FAW Besturn. The model is reportedly receiving the road test in southern China’s Hainan Island.
Instead, FAW have announced that the sport version of larger model - Besturn B70 - will be launched in Guangzhou in August 2008. The sports model, code-named B70S, will be slightly altered with ’sports equipment’.
