China's motorcycle and automotive manufacturer Lifan Group plans to start production of its first SUV model by the end of this year, the Xinhua news agency reported.

Chairman Yin Mingshan said Lifan plans to produce the model in its facility located in Inner Mongolia of China as of the end of this year. The SUV will be powered by Lifan's independently developed 1.6 L engine, delivering 78kW and 137Nm of torque. Gasoline and natural-gas-powered editions will be available after their launch.

With a body length of 4,550 mm, width of 1,705 mm, and 1,405 in height, the vehicle offers ample room for friends and families, said the report.

Lifan, which has made a name for itself as a maker of motorcycles as well as truck and bus engines, began automobile production in 2006.

Last year American International Group bought a 13.5 percent stake in Lifan.

American taxpayers will be delighted to know that their hard earned money is going to develop such an advanced gas guzzling SUV.

Perhaps AIG will ensure this model's success by giving some hefty bonuses to the sales and marketing staff at Lifan.

The design looks kinda cross between a Merc ML SUV and RAV 4(the 2nd and 3rd gen)...

I think the design reminds me of the current generation Hyundai Santa Fe. Perhaps Toyota shouldn't be worried, because it is based on someone else's product. They should bring it here, but I'm not sure about the quality levels. Are they planning to export?
Question: Does Hyundai sell the Santa Fe in China, because this could be a competitor to it and Chinese would pick compatriot over quality.

These are the clear crisp photos we have been waiting for. Thank you Martin.

As for the front view, the mating of that headlight, hood, and grille looks unusual. The metalwork looks strange too. Maybe we will have to wait and see the production model.
