Lifan LF1012 pick-up truck

Time now for a very interesting line of pick-up trucks. They were made by Lifan Automotive, famous for the mad 320 mini. The pick-up came in two: the Lifan LF1012 single cap and the  LF1012S double cab. There were also two panel vans, the LF1012S single cap and LF1012SJ double cap.

The LF1012-series debuted in December 2006 and was, according to Lifan, “designed for transport between rural and urban area’s”. Transporting cows to da city and taking a new TV back to the farm…

The engine was made by Liuzhou Wuling Automobile. Kerb weight was 960kg. Size: 4465×1630×1720, wheelbase was 2500. Bed size: 1310×1370×400 for the pick-up and 1310×1370×1000 for the panel-van.

LF1012S double cap panel-van. I haven’t been able to find much additional information about the LF102 series, nor did I find additional pictures. This seems to indicate that Lifan hasn’t made many and that indeed is a sad thing. Until today Lifan didn’t try any new pick-up trucks again.

    Fantastic find – even I did not know these existed. Lifan also have some strange three wheel/car mashup’s for sale in SE Asia.

    We know the platform of origin for the Geelys you’ve shown previously, but what about this Lifan pickup? Is this Citroen ZX-based like the 520 sedan? Its got an unusually high roofline.
