It seems that Etsong was out of production soon after the launch of this model for its extremely poor market response. Although I never verified this, one thing is sure however, that I haven't seen a single Etsong car in my city.
Does anyone know the story behind this "new version of the Etsong Lubao, which has recently been unveiled" and when was it actually unveiled? :confused: I guess erik knows the source of the picture?

But wait a minute, sounds we're a little off-topic, no?
Yes off-topic - these need moving to an Etsong thread...

Your story seems correct, I have read much the same story but it doesn't explain that new model :confused: I think Erik knows some more...

I hope the new Rover / MG chinese models are more successful than this older chinese one, although this was an Austin originaly not a Rover. There was also an MG version of it.

Hello Windy, in April 2005 the Etsong website suddenly showed an update of the Lubao.
...
Two months later the factory was sold to SGM-Wuling.
Thanks Erik, that has puzzled me for a while.

I guess they showed some old pictures which had not been seen before to help sell the factory - Sounds like its well dead now.

Does anyone know if the micro cars that are supposed to be produced there now exist yet and sell?

i drove one once, it was ok, running with a toyota 1.4 engine from faw.
You would have liked the MG turbo version better - that was officialy quicker than some Ferraris when it was launched in 1988!
