Double Ring's IPR lawyers are likely to enjoy job security.
The company sent 66 of these to Italy in August. It's said to be moving right along with plans to produce passenger cars within a year or so (China Daily). They are even looking at possible overseas production. All this is amazing for a company that barely sold 4,000 cars last year.
Shuanghuan Sceo approved chilean safety and emission laws
The Sceo, that will be sold under the name of Autorrad Sceo, has been recently cleared by the 3CV, the Chilean Government agency in charge of the safety and emission regulations in Chile.
The Sceo tested in Chile was the 2.4L with manual transmission, and it passed the Euro III standars with the following figures:
CO = 1,37
HC = 0,13
NOx = 0,14
The Sceo was the second chinese car cleared by the chilean government afther the Shanghai GM Sail (sold in Chile as Chevrolet Corsa Plus). The estimated price of the Sceo 'll be $12.000.000 (US$22.857)

The car is looking very well. But the technical specifications are bad. The engine has only 125hp (Benzin) and the ISUZU Diesel ENgine with 90hp is a joke ! If the put a better Engine inside, the the car will be perfect. (EURO 4 will be incredible)
Maximum Speed Benzin: 120hp --> 150 kmh
Maximum Speed Diesel 90 ---> 125kmh
this car seems to be the most popular car out of all chinese cars in north america at the moment..
bcuz its a copy of bmw x5, its being talked about on many forums and getting media attention after frankfurt autoshow.
but still nice car, but wonder how it is to drive LOL if uve also drivin an X5,
i read somewhere that it drives better than the BMW X5
i know that now is december, but you buyed this car, i mean ceo? because i know that the MAX SPEED of this car is 125km/h.
i will buy this car too and i would like to know all about this car can you help me with this?
seriously, that car is nothing compared to a BMW X5... it may look similar, but i am 100 % sure that it drives like sh*t. i mean: 125 horsepower? in a car that weighs more then 2 ton?!? have we returned to the 60? AND because it is so cheap, none of the other components can be any good :s why doens't china TRY to make a GOOD quality car for a change? why always try to be the cheapest? And my final point: why copy the design? it isn't allowed, it isn't fair and i am sure they will get into trouble for stealing BMW's design... ohh well I just hate chinese cars btw, for you who didn't notice
Thanks for your comment, and tbh, Chinese carmakers are trying to make a change, they are trying to shed off that image of cheap cars and pay more attention to quality control now and working on their own design with the Italians. But there are still naughty players out there like this Shuanghuan. Players like Chery is really putting a lot of efforts in to make a change.
It's ok to hate, cos only time can tell
And not to mention that most of Chinese auto makers are 5-10 years old, they are still learning.
true true, we once thought Korean cars were crap and now everyone buys them
but personnally i encourage Chinese car constructors to develop their own style, not like this Shuanghuan and as you say: only time will tell
You can have a look at what another Chinese carmakers are doing , like Chery with their new models and concept, I know people still remember Chery as a Daewoo matiz cloner. And BYD just passed an Euro Ncap with quite decent result despite being just 4 years old (although that model is a Toyota Corolla clone ) . And you may be aware of the C-Ncap that helps to monitor the safety standards of cars in China (testing speed is 56 kmph compared to 64 kph of Euro Ncap) , the quality and safety standards of Chinese cars are expected to rise in the comming years, but I won't be making too many predictions though, it is all up to them.
But tbh, I do like your comments about quality and design. I think Chinese automakers still have quite a long way to travel in regards to those, there are still quite many Chinese players out there that do not obey the rules.
oh well, fortunately for me, i like cars in general, i 'm not really that brand addicted and i don't really care where the cars come from as long as they are good designed, built and drive well so actually looking forward to the future ^^ the more car manufacturers, the better i say
