New cross-coupe from China Bisu T7: Official ImagesMay 11, 2018
The Chinese brand Bisu has distributed teasers for its fourth production model. The brand was created in 2016 within the joint venture of corporations BAIC and Yinxiang Motorcycle Group.
Coupé-like Bisu SUV “lit up” in May 2017 – then the network posted a spy photo of the prototype, which the manufacturer called the T7. In January of this year, in the database of the Ministry of Industry of China, there were pictures of the commodity crossover, that model had another index – T6. Now the brand has distributed official teasers of the serial version, and, according to local media, the cross was returned to the T7 index. In the Chinese market, the cross-coupe will be released in August 2018.
According to preliminary information, the length of the model is 4,820 mm, width – 1,915 mm, height – 1,660 mm, wheelbase size is 2,815 mm. Thus, the cross-compartment was larger than the current flagship Bisu – seven-seat crossover T5 (4 715/1 830/1 780 mm, wheelbase – 2,760 mm). Judging by the pictures of the interior, the Bisu T7 equipment list includes a virtual dashboard, a projection display and a multimedia system with a “soaring” touchscreen. Also, the model has a motor start button, and it is not located next to the steering wheel, but on the center console.
It is expected that the T7 will be offered with a petrol turbo four 2.0 power of 197 hp, which works in tandem with a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. The drive, most likely, will only be front-wheel-drive vehicles in China are not in demand.
Recall, the brand Bisu was established in 2016 in the joint venture of corporations BAIC and Yinxiang Motorcycle Group, outside the China machine brand are not represented. Coupe T7 will be the fourth serial model Bisu: in addition to the aforementioned T5 cross, the line also includes a small SUV T3 and compact van M3. But sales from Bisu by Chinese standards are rather sluggish: in 2017, 47,245 cars were sold.
By the way, the cross-coupe in the Middle Kingdom is gaining popularity: such models have long been offered by Honda, Mazda and Venucia (a joint project of Nissan and Dongfeng), and this year they were joined by Borgward and Dongfeng. Soon, the coupe-like SUV will also be presented by Geely.
