SongSang Motors got famous last year when they launched their SS Dolphin at Beijing Auto Show. It was a retro-styled Corvette C1. As it turned out, the brand was wholly owned by BYD.

Yesterday SongSang Motors launched their new MPV called SS Summer. It’s a reminiscence of the famous VW Type 2. The price is 290 000 yuan (45 000 USD). The retro design looks quite cute. The car seems more like a car toy than a drivable vehicle.

The interior layout is 2+3+2. The second row’s middle seat can be laid down, forming a little coffee table you can sit around. Other seats are electrically adjusted. Lots of leather is used in the cockpit, which features a large LCD control screen.

The car has double sliding doors and 17” wheels. The size is 4950/1980/1880mm, and the wheelbase is 2820mm. The rear is dominated by a mounted pare tire and bold bumper, which is a true retro.

SS Summer is powered by a 1.5L four-cylinder engine + a single motor plug-in hybrid system. The maximum power of the engine is 235kW (320 hp), and torque is 475Nm. It has the 7-speed gear.

According to SongSang, SS Summer is expected to start deliveries in the summer of 2022. With China recently allowing couples to have a third child, we might see a boom of new MVPs and large SUVs in the next years. They are already widely popular in China, as Nio proves with its seven-seater ES8.
