From paultan.org:

348 units of completely built up Proton GEN2 cars are already on their way to China, having left the port today. This is the second shipment, with an initial batch of 60 already delivered earlier this month. Proton expects to ship a total of 1,600 CBU units by the end of January 2008. A total of 1,500 Proton GEN2s per month will be shipped over the next 20 months - a total of over 30,000 units. In addition, the first shipment of spare parts worth RM2 million has already been delivered.

The Proton GEN2 has undergone 6 months of testing in China in order to obtain the China Compulsory Certification, which includes build quality, crash test, safety, fitting, and component tests. It will be sold under the EuropeStar name in China.

Bookings for the Europestar-badged Proton GEN2 in the Chinese market has reached 1,600 units so far.
Quote:
Europestar RCR is based on the GEN2 and it looks pretty much like a usual prefacelift GEN2 with Europestar badges slapped on! Many Chinese automotive publications have been referring to this car as a rebadged Lotus Racer, so the RCR most likely stands for RaCeR.

The Campro 1.6 liter engine under the Europestar RCR’s hood makes 84 kilowatts (112.6 horsepower) at 6,000rpm and 148Nm of torque at 4,000rpm - this is a 2 kilowatt boost over our standard 82 kilowatt (110 horsepower) Campro engines in Malaysia.

The Europestar RCR will be priced between 100,000 to 150,000 yuan, which is about RM45,000 to RM67,500. As previously mentioned, initial fully imported shipment into China by Jinhua Youngman will be 30,000 units, but once CKD operations are started the car will be offered at a lower price. It’s not known whether the version locally assembled in China will get the “unique styling“.

Europestar RCR officially launched in China.

Quote:
The Europestar RCR was officially launched in China on the 9th of January 2008 in Beijing. Europestar is a brand of Youngman Automobile Sales Co. Ltd., and the Europestar RCR is basically a rebadged Proton GEN2.

Youngman is confident of selling the 30,000 CBU units of Proton GEN2s within the 20 month delivery period, and has appointed 40 dealers to support the launch in terms of managing its sales, service and spare parts operations for the Europestar brand in China. CKD operations will begin soon after at Youngman’s plant in Jinan, which has an annual capacity of 300,000 units.

The Europestar RCR is targeted at small business owners, middle-income salaried workers and civil servants between the ages of 25-35 who Youngman expects to find the model stylish, comfortable and yet affordable. Youngman wants to capture 20% of the hatchback market in China within 2 years.

RCR receives 3,800 orders in six days after launched in China!

Quote:
January 15, 2008 - Just six days after being launched, the new-to-market Lotus RCR has received 3,800 orders in China, local newspaper Beijing Business Daily reported.

Lotus RCR was jointly launched by Chinese automaker Youngman Automobile Group and United Kingdom automaker Lotus on January 9 in Beijing. There are four options of the 1.6-liter RCR cars, which are priced between $17,800-20,500.

"We aimed to sell 30,000 units of RCRs this year," said Cui Wei, vice president of Youngman Auto, adding that the company will first import the completely built-up vehicles and later start assembling the completely-knocked-down or CKD kits.

The automaker also said it plans to launch 8 Lotus models with an engine size of between 1.6 litres and 3.0 litres, including sport car, sedan, SVU and MPV within the next four years. A little bit ambitious but the two partners are quite optimistic about the goal.

Youngman will apparently bring another Proton model to China and sell it under Europestar badge. This time it is Proton Persona, sedan version of GEN2 (Europestar RCR):
