Changfeng’s Zhuo Yue sedan spotted out
Published September 10, 2010
Changfeng was recently soaked into the Guangzhou Auto empire but this has not stopped the development of Changfengs self developed sedan, which has been named the Zhuo Yue which roughly translates to splendid.
The Zhuo Yue was codenamed as the CP21, and was known by the Chinese automotive press as the fake S40? but it seems that Changfeng has greater aims for the CP21 than being just an S40 clone. The benchmark for the car is reportedly the S40 and Ford Focus, but the CP21 will soon be joined by a hatchback (codenamed CP22) and also a coupe (codenamed CP23).
The Ministry of Industry and Communications has already given the CP21 a license for production and it is likely to be launched very soon powered by 1.6L, 1.8L and 2.0L engines that Changfeng bought from Ford and Visteon in 2008.
