Zotye to roll out new oil hybrid car in Changsha

August 11, 2008

Shanghai, August 11 (Gasgoo.com) Jiangnan Auto, a subsidiary of China Zotye Holding Group which is a local manufacturer of scooters and ATVs, will roll out an oil hybrid model in Changsha this October, reported Changsha Evening newspaper.

The model, a hot selling utility family car in Europe, boasts smart appearance and roomy space. Equipped with six airbags, the ABS system, blue tooth, small refrigerator, and particularly driven by the petrol and natural gas hybrid power, the model is quite an economical family vehicle.

The Changsha facility of Zotye’s Jiangnan Auto, located in the city’s economical and development zone, is a mid-class to luxury car manufacturing base with over 2.6 billion yuan ($378 million) in total investment. Construction of this project will be completed in 2011

"Oil hybrid"????
Is this non sense worth repeating. C'mon Gasgoo management, send your reporters for some technical education in alternate energy kinds, so they will know the difference between a hybrid and a flex fuel ICE driven vehicle........

Actually, it will be a gaz/petrol hybrid.

The article doesn't specify the platform. Is it the current Daihatsu clone? The Multipla? Or, at last, the Lancia Lybra?

This article by "Kelly" of Gasgoo is a source of confusion on more than a few points. Besides making up the term of "oil hybrid", the author doesn't acknowledge that Jiangnan was indeed an auto manufacturer before it became a subsidiary of Zotye (see photos). But at no time did it manufacture the "luxury" cars alluded to. And the "mid class" the author talks about certainly doesn't include or apply to the "Alto" model that has been Jiangnan's bread and butter.
The author refers to it as a "family car" but with equipment like a refrigerator, I think Laofan is right, that it will more likely be something like a Multipla van. Joest, I don't think "roomy" is a term that could be applied to Zotye's current Daihatsu clone.
In any event I look forward to Gasgoo, or someone else, clarifying this development with some more reliable info.
