The best spy shots so far of the upcoming Haima S5 SUV, seen here in the Haima factory on the always sunny Hainan island. The Haima S5, code named SC01, is a mid-size SUV that will be positioned under the Haima S7 SUV, it will be launched on the China car market in 2014.
The Haima S5 will be powered by a turbocharged 1.5 liter four-cylinder with 150hp and 210nm, mated to a 5-speed manual or a CVT. A naturally aspirated 1.5 will likely become available as well, but probably not at launch. Price of the 1.5 turbo will start around 80.000 yuan. The Haima S5 is part of a giant Haima SUV-offensive that includes two more new SUV’s.
Sunny Hainan yes, but sea-salty too. The salt must play havoc on parts in storage there. Hope they have inland suppliers and use Kanban production to get them there just in time for installation.
Welcome back, Tycho. And..中秋快乐
