Hmm.... all SMA motors seem to be based on a combination of bodywork and platform from the 1991 Citroen ZX, coupled with an interior from the 1998 Citroen Xsara... interesting...

Is SMA engines are the same engines as Geely?

I like Chinese cars, or I wouldn't be here.

HOWEVER...

I just wonder what the point is of buying one of these when you can actually buy a Fukang CitroŽn ZX or Elysee?

Default common engines

Ash is right....The Hisoon for example has a Toyota 8A-FE based 1.3 litre
four cylinder. After a suit brought by Toyota in 2003, Geely somehow won the rights to build it in house as the MR479Q. Geely had previously bought this engine (also found in the Geely CK) from Tianjin Industrial (home of Xiali) which is licensed by Toyota.

Exclamation lots of irons in the fire

Geely is juggling more than a few projects. It even has one in Hong Kong and so it's hard to say where Maple is going. As you may know Li Shutong's Maple Auto started with the production of Meilu in a venture with Jiangbei Machinerey up north and then moved down to Shanghai in 2003. Some said that the idea of making Citroen-based models was to cut production costs by sourcing from the already established Dongfeng-Citroen suppliers. Now it will be interesting to see what exclusive IPR comes from Maple's collaboration with Tongji University and the Shanghai Innova design house.

btw the in-house engine maker I mentioned above is called the Shanghai Maple Engine Co.,Ltd. It makes both the MR and JL series engines.
