Default JAC IV concept

JAC IV concept will make a debut at Beijing.

It was designed in JACís Italian design studio and is set to be a two seater city car for the next generation of drivers that donít require 5 seats and a large trunk. The JAC IV is actually a small displacement engine with a hybrid power train attached, making it the ultimate little city run around for those in the big smoke.

Wow, again a very impressive looking car of my favourite Chinese car manufacturer in terms of design. It looks in my opininion even much beter than the smart fortwo, Toyota iQ or the upcoming Chery Faira BB Concept based Riich.

The side view of the back looks very much like the Pininfarina-Bollore Bluecar I used to post on here. Because Pininfarina is an Italian design studio, I suppose.

It gets me ta wonderin' what's going on with the Pininfarina-Bollore all-electric car project, the Bluecar. It's still in the works.

Is this an HEV or a PHEV? The front bumper insert would hint that it's a PHEV.
In any case it is a very attractive, original looking design.
All the SmartFortwo, and its imitators, will be blown away by this one.

It's a little bit longer than the Pininfarina-Bollore BlueCar. The BlueCar is also 4-doors but it's shorter than this car.

DC despite the strong resemblance, I don't see the radical sculpting of the side panels that the two door has. And its front roof line is unique. I wonder what they will call it.
In any case I think most will agree that JAC has come up with two really good looking concepts.
SmartForTwo's promoter Roger Penske, wouldn't have to struggle to gather attention toward these two models.

Here is the first generation of the Bollorť Bluecar, with a french design:

And here is the second generation, the production version which was designed by Pininfarina:

It shall be available at the end of this year.

I guess the concept from JAC is much smaller than both. Thanks to an italian designer, it's really good looking. It's a smart move from chinese manufacturers to outsource design as long as their designers are still learning.

I don't understand why it's an hybrid. Such a small car, it should be all electric.

Agreed, green car driver, the car should be made as an all-electric.
