Huatai B11

Hawtai might be a relatively small company in the Chinese auto market, but with small size comes agility that the bigger players dont have. Hawtais small size allows it to react to market segments faster than its larger rivals and its agility is starting to come to fruitation, Hawtais previous partner Hyundai sold off its IPR to Hawtai that quickly put the last generation Sante-Fe and Terracan into production, Hawtai also bought diesel engine tech from Italian company VM, and also automatic gearbox tech from ZF, all of this Hawtai have improved on for their next model, the B11 sedan.

The B11 sedan came as a suprise to many in the automotive industry, it was a game changer as both Chery and Geely were planning on bringing out upmarket sedans but Hawtai beat them to it by launching the B11 concept sedan, a sedan which really did look upmarket with its Bentley styling.

The B11 will use SAICs 1.8T gasoline engine and also Hawtais diesel engine mated to their own auto box, which will give Hawtai an interesting niche on other Chinese auto makers. The B11 is being built in Hawtais new Inner Mongolian factory in Ordos, but if demand is strong it could be rolled out to other Hawtai factories.
