This is the final production version, minus the shiny alloys and red brake calipers, of the new JAC Heyue A30 sedan, it will be launched on the Chinese car market in July, priced from 60.000 to 80.000 yuan. The Heyue A30, formerly known as JAC BII, will be positioned just above the new JAC Heyue A20 that debuted on the Shanghai Auto Show as well.
Power will come from a 1.5 liter engine with 113hp and 146nm, mated to a 5-speed manual or a CVT. A 1.8 might become available as well, but the 1.5 will be alone at launch. Many Chinese car buyers still prefer a big engine, even when it delivers the same power and uses more gas than a smaller engine. Automakers are thus forced to keep older-big engines in the line-up.
