Besturn does China's FAW Car a good turn


Quote:
The pace of sales in the Chinese automobile market slowed in the first half of 2008, but the listed unit of China's second-largest carmaker, First Automobile Works Group, performed strongly, on the enthusiastic reception for its midsized sedans as well as diligent cost-cutting efforts.

Amid consumer concerns about high fuel prices and inflation, growth in car sales moderated to 17% in the first half of this year, versus the comparable period last year, the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers said on Wednesday. In the first half of 2007, auto sales grew 22%, year on year, over 2006. But FAW Car Co., based in Changchun, in the northeastern province of Jilin, and listed on the Shenzhen stock exchange, expects to post first-half profit growth of 200% to 250%.

FAW’s B50 delayed.

August 01, 2008 - According to the Southern Daily’s reports, FAW’s new small sedan, the Besturn B50 has been delayed slightly although the exact date of it going on the market is currently unknown.

The Besturn B50, projected to be launched at the end of this year, will probably be put on sale in the beginning of 2009. FAW Car intends to maintain Besturn B50’s reliability through more tests, according to Yu Yang, vice marketing director of FAW Besturn. The model is reportedly receiving the road test in southern China’s Hainan Island.

Instead, FAW have announced that the sport version of larger model - Besturn B70 - will be launched in Guangzhou in August 2008. The sports model, code-named B70S, will be slightly altered with ’sports equipment’.

The long-awaited Besturn B50 sedan model of FAW Car Co., a subsidiary of FAW Group, rolled off the production line in Changchun on March 3rd, 2009. It is the second model of the FAW Besturn brand, after the 2009 Besturn B70. The Besturn B50 will go on sale by early May.

Last April, the Besturn B50 made its debut at the 2008 Beijing auto show. It is based on the previous generation Mazda6 platform, and equipped with a 1.6L gasoline engine with peak power of 76/6000 (kW/rpm), available with manual and automatic transmissions.

The Besturn B50 stands on a modified Mazda 6 chassis, as FAW and Mazda produce the Mazda 6 in their joint venture operation. A hybrid version of the Besturn B50 is expected to be available later.

Since FAW manufactures in China the Prius on behalf of Toyota, surely a hybrid engine will be a natural next step for FAW Group, who has seen Besturn as one of its own brands, like the HQ (Red Flag) brand.

The Besturn B50 will be delivered to the market in late April or early May this year, at a price between 110,000 yuan ($16,100) and 150,000 yuan.
