Rigan Motor, a subsidiary of Kerman Khodro engaged in vehicle trading and sales, also a licensed manufacturer of engines and gearboxes, has begun local assembly of the T600 Coupe as Coupa T210. It is powered by a 1.5T 156 hp, 210 Nm engine. 299 units of the SUV have been made in April and May.

The original T600 (B11) has been discontinued in China. Current listings include the Sport and Coupe (B11A, B11F) variants, besides the New T600 (B11G).

The B11 is still offered in some export markets, however, this is being gradually replaced by the B11F, for instance, in some countries of the MENA region.

The B11 continues to be assembled in Belarus (from where it is exported mostly to Russia) and Ecuador.

The Zotye range has been pared down recently, with the Zema, Domy X5 and X7 gone (Dorcen having taken over); also the SR9 and SR7 are no longer being built (as of May) or promoted.

So perhaps it will be the B11 or B11F, that Haah Automotive Holdings plans to launch in the U.S. starting at the end of 2020, or beginning of 2021.
The current trade issues not withstanding, reports say that Haah is going forward on schedule, and will absorb any increase in tariffs, if they arise.
The T700 will follow.

Reports are that Zotye sub-brand, Traum, has gone bankrupt, and that Zotye in general is in financial trouble.

However, Duke Hale, of Haah Automotive Holdings, is still confident that he can bring the Zotye product successfully to the anxiously waiting, one hundred, recently recruited dealers in the U.S.. The first model will be the (updated) T600 that was introduced at Shanghai 2013 Auto Show. Hale vows not to let any forthcoming tariffs to get in the way of the planned 2021 launch.
Back in 2006, Hale had success stolen from him when the plan to launch a revived MG in the U.S. was abandoned.

Nonetheless, in my view the flame of nostalgia for the MG two seaters is still alive and just waiting for the MG's new owner, SAIC, to act.

As for the T600 let's hope that lightning does not strike twice in the same place, and that rather Zotye will be affordable, and make a hit with U.S. buyers.
