it is very nice car. if SAIC can solve the process/manufacturing issues, i think the users will probably accept it.
Now in China or in the world, concept car is very nice and beautifully, but in the process of development, it may be changed due to manufacturing issue, cost issue, assembly issue. Otherwise the quality might be poor or unreliable.

Dear Sir,
We are leading car importers in Sri Lanka and has been for 20 years. We import only from Japanese and Singapore. But recently we found we can boomup Chinese vehicles also in our country. We actually need small trucks and commercial vans specially. Meanwhile we can import big trucks and small cars too. First we actually like to go for a small trucks and vans. We need to find out a reliable Chinese Automobile manufactures and act as their agent in Sri Lanka.
Thanks.

The fact that a Chinese company can design a decent original car makes it even more shameful that the other Chinese companies persist in stealing other automakers' designs. There's no excuses anymore.

From Global Auto Sourcing:

After its Rover75-based Roewe 750 was launched in Chinese market last March, Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC) started to develop its second Roewe-branded sedan--Roewe 550. The sedan is set to debut at the upcoming Beijing Auto Show this April and go on sale in June, Xinhua News Agency reports today.

Priced at 120,800 Yuan to 160,000 Yuan (US$16,575-22,099), Roewe 550 is set to compete with models like Mazda3, Honda Civic, Ford Focus and VW Sagitar. It is 4,624 mm in length, 1,827 mm in width, 1,480 mm in height and has a wheelbase of 2,705 mm. The turbocharged engine could turn out a maximum of 118 kW.

"Roewe 750 absorbs the advanced Rover technology, but this car (Roewe 550) is definitely a technology innovation by SAIC on its own. It's based on a brand new platform, very different from Rover," said an unnamed SAIC official.

Roewe 550 is independently built by SAIC's technology center in Anting, the west suburbs of Shanghai. The automaker said that the center, together with its design workshops in Nanjing, Korea and UK, will develop about local brand models.

Road-test for the car has already been finished.
