Lingyu is a compound word, made up of ''ling dao'' which means "to lead" and "jia yu" which means " to rein, to control"

My father says it's a very good car coz he drives it quite often.

Shanghai VW to debut hydrogen fuel-cell Lingyu in US.

November 14, 2008 - Shanghai VW will debut its hydrogen fuel-cell Volkswagen Lingyu sedan at the upcoming 2008 Los Angeles auto show on November 21-30 in the U.S. It is the first China-made new-energy car model of the Volkswagen brand to be displayed at an auto show, said Shanghai Securities News today.

The hydrogen-powered Lingyu, based on Volkswagen Passat Lingyu, were manufactured by Shanghai VW on its latest fuel cell powertrain platform. The powertrain was jointly developed SAIC (Shanghai VW's parent), Tongji University and Shanghai Shen-Li High Tech Co., Ltd. It is the first-ever try to power a Passat car on the hydrogen fuel cell, said a top executive of Shanghai VW.

The eco-friendly Lingyu model runs on the power generated by the hydrogen fuel cell and achieves zero-emission by discharging only water from the chemical reaction of hydrogen with oxygen. With further innovation and maximization, the latest hydrogen fuel-cell Lingyu sedan can reach a top speed of 150 km/h and run more than 300 km at one hydrogen charging. Its safety and performance has been greatly improved.

SAIC's another global partner General Motors has also developed the zero-emission hydrogen fuel-cell model of Chevrolet Equinox and put it in service at the Beijing Olympics as well. GM's hydrogen fuel-cell Chevy Equinox seems to perform better but cost higher than the VW Lingyu, whose U.S. debut is likely to enhance its competitiveness with the close rival.

Amid the current global financial crisis, new-energy vehicles can give automakers in China a good opportunity of market growth. Reportedly, Shanghai VW had built 500 fuel-cell hybrid sedans for the green Olympic fleet and will mass-produce the hydrogen fuel-cell Lingyu by early 2010.

Translation with Google:

Shanghai Volkswagen's Passat sedan production in the automobile market can be an evergreen, B5 from the old drive to get to the two generations living under one roof, this classic B-class car for the Shanghai Volkswagen has created a very high volume to maintain and visibility. Passat is now the distance from the listing of a whole drive more than 3 years, this reporter learned from Shanghai Volkswagen regard this classic models in 2009 to usher in a paragraph.

It was revealed that this model vehicle, code-named "SVW7183TJD" the new structure in the vehicle with the old Passat from the same drive, but before and after the bumper, in the network, part of headlamps has obviously changed. The new models will be the previous generation Volkswagen apparent U-grille into a more beautiful pieces of chrome-plated grille, and hood, bumper integrated into one large U-shape, more harmonious whole, with the public's Phaeton model more similar to the period.

Between different cars, high and low with the appearance of models with a very clear distinction. The new models are still used 1.8 liters 5-valve turbocharged engine, and believe in the final entry will be introduced to meet the needs of 2.0 liters naturally aspirated engine models.

As for the name of this new model will continue to adopt the "Passat? Collar Yu" naming, there is currently no definitive conclusion.

But be sure, this is not a Shanghai Volkswagen is about to start a new generation of B-class commercial vehicle "NMS".
Not very clear translation but according to last sentence car on pictures should not be mistaken for VW NMS.
