Hawtai might be known as a manufacturer of ex-Hyundai vehicles now, but two or three years from now they will have a very exciting product line up that will rival the likes of Brilliance in the domestic market. Hawtai have set up their new car project on a set of very solid plans, they bought the platforms from Hyundai in the form of the last generation Sante-Fe and the Terracan, then they bought the engines from the Italian company, VM, and automatic and manual gearboxes from ZF, now they are putting all of their acquired technology into a new range of cars.

The first sedan that Hawtai plans to launch is the B11 model (pictured, left) and then the B35 SUV which will launch sometime in early 2011. The B11 has already entered production in Hawtais new factory in Ordos City, Inner Mongolia, and television and magazine advertisements have already begun. By 2012 Hawtai is aiming to get a new SUV model, codenamed the C25, out into prototype. The C25 will be a luxury model and is already in the development stage. Also in 2012, Hawtai aims to have its six speed manual gearbox at the SOP stage meaning it will be close to entering the market, and by 2013 its six speed automatic gearbox will also be at SOP status, by mid 2011 we should start seeing Hawtais gearbox testers out on the roads.

On the engine front, the new C25 will have two engines both codenamed OED492Q and OED483 (OED being Hawtais engine brand name) Both models are four cylinder turbo diesel models, which will further Hawtais plans to become Chinas clean diesel leader.
