Daihatsu Bego spotted in China - end of year launch?

Daihatsu seem to be wanting to get back into the PRC market after several years absense from the PRC, their last car, the Tarios, was sold in few numbers until it turned into the Zotye SUV (although we’re not entirely sure how). Previously Daihatsu were involved in making their minivans in China, then small SUV’s before dissapearing completely, however, it appears that Daihatsu are having a second run at the Chinese market with a new line up, including the Copen roadster, and also this Daihatsu Bego which was spotted recently in China:

The compact SUV market has really taken off in China, with stiff competition between the Japanese and the Korean brands, although the Chinese brands have yet to bring in a real fighter other than the Chery Tiggo, the Bego’s expected end of year launch in the PRC is only going to add pressure to the Chinese makers to push out their own competitive compact SUV.

After the end of the Xiali/Huali joint venture Daihatsu went into a joint venture with FAW Jilin to produce the Xenia (Xinya) seen here. Reported introduction was April 2007. But don't know if production continues or not.
