China launches 1958 Corvette replica ... and it's a plug-in hybrid

Chinese manufacturer Songsan Motors has launched a suspiciously recognisable new model, called the SS Dolphin. Unveiled earlier this week at the Beijing Motor Show, the designers of the hard-top convertible have apparently been inspired by the 1958 Chevrolet Corvette C1. The Chinese copycat car is powered by a turbocharged 1.5-litre plug-in hybrid combination and, according to the brand’s website, can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 4.9 seconds.

2020 Hyundai Tucson facelift revealed for China

Beijing Hyundai has revealed a China-specific version of the Tucson SUV, which gets unique styling and features compared to the global version offered in markets like Australia. The Korean-Chinese joint venture is pitching the vehicle as a "fourth generation" model, though it appears the '2020' Tucson for China is merely a reskinned version of the car currently on sale.
