The first live shots of the new Lifan 820 sedan, seen here arriving at the exhibition hall of the 2014 Beijing Auto Show where it will debut tomorrow. The Lifan 820 will be launched on the Chinese auto market in the second half of this year, price will start around 90.000 yuan and end around 120.000 yuan.
The Lifan 820 will be positioned above the Lifan 720 and will enter into a new market segment for the Lifan brand. Competition is huge and margins are small, but as always in China; the numbers are potentially massive.
At launch the Lifan 820 will only be available with a 1.8 liter four cylinder with about 130hp, mated to a 5-speed manual. Lifan is also working on a 160hp 2.0 that will be launched late this year.
