The dashboard could do with some improvement in design I think. Cheap looking interior.

Article from China Car Times:

Quote:
October 14th, 2008 - The SouEast V3 is SouEast’s latest small sedan, and their first own design, (although to China Car Times it looks like a re-worked previous generation Mitsubishi Lancer)

The V3 was officially launched yesterday, and comes with a 1.5l MIVEC Mitsubishi engine underneath. The best part about the V3 is the price, it starts at a mere 64,800rmb to 85,800rmb, which is quite frankly, nothing!

SouEast are launching 5 models of the V3, a basic, a standard, a luxury, a flagship and a flagship sunroof model. For a sub 100,000rmb compact sedan, the V3 is looking set to take to that particular segment very well, with only the Haima Family (aka Mazda 323) performing well in that area.

The 1.5l engine is also noteworthy, with it requiring just 4.3l of fuel for an average speed of 60kph, which is probably on par with a 1.3l engine. The engine also reaches Euro 5 emissions specs.

Besides the good looks, and the engine, the V3 also has a variety of goodies packed in. The wireless entry, and wireless ignition system is usually only found on cars twice the price, so to see the system in the sub 100,000rmb segment is a real suprise, the V3 also has a DVD/Navigation system, and a CD player with MP3 connection.

Oh, and if you’re wondering what the V in V3 stands for, its V for Victory!

V3 Lingyue sedan gets 6,000 orders a month

November 26, 2008

Shanghai, November 26 (Gasgoo.com) Fujian-based carmaker Southeast Motor revealed on Tuesday that its first self-developed compact sedan V3 Lingyue launched in late October has secured more than 6,000 orders now, said xinhuanet.com today. This new car is expected to sell at least 5,000 units each month ahead.

As a strategic own-brand model of Southeast Motor, the new V3 Lingyue model is equipped with the all-new 1.5L MIVEC engine based on the cutting-edge engine technology of Mitsubishi Motors, a Japanese investor and partner of the Chinese carmaker in Fujian province. The new engine, made by Harbin Dongan Mitsubishi, delivers powerful performance, rapid reaction, high security and fuel efficiency.



The V3 Lingyue compact sedan came off line on August 28 and was launched onto the market in late October, priced at 60,000 yuan ($8,780) to 80,000 yuan, about 40,00 yuan lower than Lancer, a sedan jointly developed by Southeast and Mitsubishi. Southeast Motor believes that the price, plus excellent features sharing with Mitsubishi, Chrysler and Dodge cars, would make its flagship model V3 Lingyue more competitive in the market.

The new V3 Lingyue model, which has got bumper ordering in a month since its launch and is expected to sell at least 5,000 units a month, may help boost the company's sales performance. Of the V3 Lingyue model's five editions, the luxury and flagship versions are much better received. Last week, Southeast Motor also started to sell its new MPV model the Mitsubishi Zinger.

The carmaker reportedly sold 30,000 vehicles in the first nine months this year, down from sales of a year earlier and below the industry average drop. Southeast Motor plans to launch one A-class or B-class proprietary car in each of the coming few years to boost its market growth.

Southeast Motor Corp was jointly built by Fujian Motor Industry Group and its Taiwan partner China Motor Corp in 1995. Japanese Mitsubishi Motors invested in Southeast Motor in 2006. Fujian Motor holds 50% stocks and the other two hold 25%+25% in the company. The three sides have recently decided to add their investment in expanding the joint venture.

Southeast Motor recalls Lingyue cars on engine flaw.

December 2, 2009
Chinese automaker Southeast (Fujian) Motor Co., Ltd. yesterday started to recall its Lingyue sedans because of engine flaws, Xinhua News reported, citing China's quality watchdog.

The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (GAQSIQ) said yesterday that the recall would involve 2,056 Lingyue sedans produced between July 17 and September 5, 2009.

A statement by the automaker said improper anti-rust oil was used in the engine, which may obstruct heat dissipation for water tank under extreme circumstances, and lead to engine overheating.

Southeast Motor will check and clean defective parts for free. Owners can call the company's hotline for consultation, or visit the GAQSIQ website for more information.

The Lingyue sedan was derived on the previous China-made Mitsubishi Lancer as an entry-level own-brand car of Southeast Motor, a Chinese partner of Mitsubishi Motors, and has sold well since its launch in October 2008.
