Default Re: Zotye to produce old Fiat Palio

In 2004 Automotive News Europe observed:
"Fiat's operations in China have suffered because the Italian automaker's lineup lacks models that appeal to Chinese buyers."
With its Nanjing partner, its best year selling these models may have been 2005 when it sold 36,160 units.
But Zotye is different, its a young company with a lot of spirit and it did a great job with its Terios-based mini SUV. Maybe it will do an equally good job at marketing these clean, functional looking models. Yes, Fiat turned up its nose at this little player Zotye, choosing instead to chase after Guangxi as a partner, but going forward it may have some regrets, and in the end find itself still flat in China.

Just like any car market there are consumers in China that demand aesthetically pleasing designs, and then there are those demand cheap economical easy to run cars, hence the mark 2 VW Jetta still being in production in Changchun. Several years ago Zotye did a deal with Fiat where Zotye would take Fiatís old platforms off its hands, including the Palio and Zotye models and also several Lancia sedans (and wagons) which they will put into production soon.

Zotye have given the Palio a decent upgrade for 2011 which seems to have dragged it respectfully into a new decade. Under the hood the newly rechristened Z200 will be packing 1.3L and 1.5L engines and will be carrying Hyundaiís gearboxes. On the inside we have heard the Z200 will have leather seats, a GPS/DVD system, full electric windows and push button engine start.

Pricing has not yet been announced, but it is expected that this will be in 70,000rmb range and will no doubt find itself a decent market due to the relatively high amount of tech in the car and attractive design.

The Z200 Langjie (hatchback) is not so bad, but it needs to be priced below 50,000 RMB if it will succeed.
