Tesla delivers first Chinese-made Model 3s

Tesla has delivered the first cars from its new factory in Shanghai, China, less than 12 months after breaking ground on the site. The first 15 examples of the Chinese-built Model 3 were handed over to Tesla employees on December 30, according to The New York Times, with one employee proposing to his girlfriend at the event. The only difference between cars built in Shanghai and those assembled in California is the badge, which is Chinese.

2020 Haval H2 pricing and specs

Haval’s entry-level soft-roader, the H2, has received a modest nip-and-tuck and some extra equipment for 2020. The most notable change to the exterior is the grille. The H2 appears to have adopted the fascia of the Chinese-market H2 Blue Label, a sportier H2 variant introduced in 2016. The six-sided grille gains some horizontal chrome bars, making it rather reminiscent of the outgoing Ford Escape.

2020 Buick Verano sedan debuts

A refreshed version of the Buick Verano sedan has debuted in China. The Verano uses the same D2XX platform as our Holden Astra and has a 2700mm wheelbase, identical to the recently discontinued Astra sedan. Unlike our Astra, however, the 2020 Verano has ditched four-cylinder engines for a pair of turbocharged three-pots. There’s a 1.0-litre mill with 92kW and 180Nm, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, and a 1.3 unit with 121kW and 240Nm of torque mated to a CVT.

Human Horizons HiPhi 1 gull-winged EV revealed, we talk to Mark Stanton

There is no shortage of Chinese EV startups to keep us amused with unlikely concepts and far-off products. Your first instinct on seeing pictures of the Human Horizons HiPhi 1 is probably to regard it as one of the ones less likely to make production, and fair enough; this is a vast electric SUV with gullwing flaps in the roof above its rear doors. (Sound familiar, though?)
