Roewe Vision-E concept previews 2018 crossover

The Roewe Vision-E concept made its debut at the Shanghai motor show, and shouldn't be confused with the Skoda Vision E concept. A production car based on the Vision-E will reportedly go into production in 2018. We expect that car to lose the concept's suicide doors, and it will likely feature a toned version of both the interior and exterior. There are few concrete details about the Vision-E, except that it's meant to be a pure EV with electric motors for both the front and rear axles.

At the Shanghai motor show this week, both the LDV T60 ute and D90 SUV were on display, and while both are likely to generate improved sales for the brand in Australia, the general manager for LDV at Ateco Automotive, Dinesh Chinnappa, said the T60 will be the 'it' car.

Initial details for the 2018 LDV D90 have been released this week ahead of the new Chinese SUV's local launch later this year. Measuring just over five metres long and around two metres wide, the D90 will take on the likes of the Hyundai Santa Fe and Kia Sorento, along with other large seven-seat SUVs including the Mazda CX-9 and Toyota Kluger when it arrives in local showrooms in late September.

Chevrolet FNR-X concept unveiled

The Chevrolet FNR-X concept car has been unveiled at the 2017 Shanghai motor show. Designed as a successor to 2015 Chevrolet FNR concept, which looked like an escapee from a science fiction movie, the FNR-X is a rather more grounded-in-reality high-riding crossover.
