Re: Roewe SUV

Roewe SUV was found on the road test in Hainian island some days before.
It's reported that by 2010 SAIC will release 30 new models based on 5 different platforms. This SUV model is the first one in the plan.

Re: Roewe SUV

It looks good to me too JB. In fact its high road clearance and brawny demeanor make it appear ready for off road fun......

Re: Roewe SUV

Two reasons, Jonathan;
if you start production of a car initially depending on a foreign make, you must be certain this make will continue to exist...
during the development process they have decided to change from assembling the Ssanyong engines (G32D 3199cc) to the famous Roewe engine (18K4G 1796 cc). That takes more more time.
Greetings!

It may be a very good engine, but for a vehicle that size they will need a bigger engine available!

Without Ssangyong, SAIC Roewe SUV has to wait

August 27, 2010
After Ssangyong Motor picked India's Mahindra and Mahindra as its preferred buyer, SAIC, which bought a 49% stake of Ssangyong in 2004 for $500 million, has recently sold out the rest 3.79% stake in the company, along with Ssangyong's SUV technology, while its Roewe SUV's launch has to be delayed now, cheshi.com reported Friday.

SAIC's acquisition of SsangYong Motor is based on its global development strategy, but both parties cannot keep harmonious labor relations. After buying into the South Korean SUV-maker, SAIC paid more attention to the technology transfer, so the latter estimated that it would likely be abandoned ultimately, according to early sources.

Just as expected, the Chinese automaker has been suffering from the purchase and failed to help the Korean carmaker get out of difficulties. In mid-July 2010, SAIC has diluted its holdings in SsangYong Motor to 3.79%. During the six-year cooperation, SAIC invested a total of 4.2 billion yuan ($618 million) in restructuring SsangYong and barely got anything in return.

Without SsangYong Motor's SUV technology, many difficulties will be lying in the way of developing SUVs for SAIC whose R&D strength is of sedan but not of the SUV.
