Orly Cristófalo can be the "first"? person that it will test the X70. On Monday he will publish at Argentina Autoblog the test drive (with off-road test).

One of that photos are on the Autoblog article.
Seems that Lifan wanna import electric models to Argentina (Lifan's going well here, more than 300 bookings of the MyWay). The mini EV's of Lifan can be?
For me, Lifan will be the Chinese car brand number one in Argentina (I'd started to see some Foisons on the streets of Rosario, near my school there's a fleet of 3 (Foison Box) of a supermarket).

Yeah, by the way, I'm not sure if Orly made the Diario Clarín photos. Maybe the photos of the Clarín article were took by the another Argentinian team that visited Chongqing.

They also have plans to import the highest trim level MyWay with sunroof and automatic gearbox.
Shame that Cariló isn't a good place for holidays, there's a lot of people (it's like Mar Del Plata).

Re: Lifan X70

Vehicle shipment stats published for January 2018 show that Lifan started dispatching X70 to the market last month; 1238 units were sent out.
Some spyshots taken on a street reveals an X70, possibly a factory car without license plates, with a manufacturer's sticker identifying it as "X60".
So the Pengfei is a replacement of the X60? Some people of the FB group "Club Lifan X60/X50/X70/Foison/MyWay Argentina" say that.

For now, some dealers in Argentina as Lifan Yang or Concesionario Nafil have started the bookings of the X70. It's the most expensive of the Lifan family, more than the MyWay (priced nearly as AR$ 500.000, that isn't a bad price for a good equipped SUV).
Some people that visited the Lifan stand in Cariló (one of these were Eduardo Smok and Matías Antico, both automotive journalists) told that the X70 had a very good quality of materials (better than the MyWay) and it seems to be a good competitor to the Chery Tiggo 5, with a recently launched facelift.

Yes D.Mitra, it seems that they are prioritizing exports, especially for South American markets (Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Uruguay, countries that the "Chinese car boom" started or it will start in a little period of time).
Shame that Lifan doesn't have plans for make a monocoque pickup, this market it's dominated by 2 brands: Fiat (with the Toro, a pickup that is getting a bad image) and Renault (with the Duster Oroch, it needs a diesel engine for more popularity, at least a K9K).
