JACs first E-segment sedan C926

The first C-segment sedan from JAC: C926

JACs debut as carmaker on Shanghai auto show this year was with a big bang: As first model, the company plans to launch an E-segment car with the code name C926. But is expected that JAC shall sell the car under a new, yet to be created, brand name.

Dimensionally, the car is the size of a European E-sector car such as the Mercedes E-Class, but aesthetically it shares more with the previous generation Mercedes S-Class, especially at the rear. Its doors and body panels evoke the previous-generation Volkswagen Passat, while the front aspect bears resemblance to a Lexus LS430.

The car is expected to go on sale in October and compete directly with the BYD F6 and the Ital-designed (and Pininfarina-facelifted) Brilliance BS6.

JAC are unique as a Chinese car company in having a European-based design studio. We understand this to mean that this model will likely be their first and last derivative design before they begin producing their own original designs.

The sketches from its Italian studio displayed on the stand are further evidence of JAC's greater commitment to car design over its other Chinese car company rivals.
