JAC super cute super mini to launch this year
Published October 28, 2009
JACs first super mini maybe a familiar sight to some CCT regulars, especially around the rear end which does strike a resemblance to the Toyota Aygo which both Geely and BYD took a shine to. The below mini car is named the Yue Yue (Ã¦?Â¦Ã¦?Â¦) and will launch towards the end of the year according to the Chinese press:
The Yue Yue really does look like an interesting car both inside and out, on the power front it will be on par with other super cheap minis with a 1.0L and 1.1L power unit delivering power to the front wheels. The 1.0L engine is the one that is shared with the Hafei Lobo and thus is a well tested engine with plenty of spare parts available. The 1.0L will produce 50kw at 6000rpm and will be paired to a 5 speed manual.
The interior looks fairly well constructed, with plenty of round, cute lines, that are likely to find the Yue Yue with plenty of young fans, coincidently, Yue actually means pleasing, which is exactly what many buyers are expected to be when they pick up up this little baby.
Pricing is expected to be on par with the BYD F0 in the low 30,000rmb segment.
