Do you remember Lifan? The small Chongqing based company has failed to make any major inroads into the national Chinese market over the past 2 years but they do remain a large player in the Chongqing and Sichuan areas where they have a loyal fan base. At the Shanghai Auto Show Lifans small stand showed their plans for the next two years, a new mid size sedan and also two mini vans. The mini vans may have come to the party a little late now that the Cars to the Countryside subsidy program for rural buyers has official ended but they could be a popular alternative to the usual Wuling and Changan vans that populate rural roads. Another new car from Lifan is the 720, the 720 is a mid size sedan that will rival the BYD F6 in terms of sizing, pricing and positioning, the 720 has already been spotted out testing in China, the Chinese media were quick to compare the 720?s interior with the current Honda Accord.

The 720 will be packing a 1.6L and a 1.8L engine complete with 5 speed manual and also a CVT gearbox that were self developed by Lifan themselves. A launch date has not been confirmed, but Lifan insiders have mentioned that it should be on the market within the year.
