This is the new cheap Volkswagen EV for China, seen on leaked patent drawings. It will use the Seat logo and Seat’s Chinese name. The space for the square-shaped Seat badge is clearly visible on the grille. Sadly, and somewhat badly, the whole car is a rather lazy job.
New developments at JAC Volkswagen, the joint venture set to build cheap electric vehicles for the Chinese masses. Originally, companies wanted to use a Chinese name for their new brand. Then Volkswagen changed its mind and decided they wanted to use the Seat brand name.

The technology of Chinese electric cars has been improving very fast, but design sadly remained unexciting, weird, or plain ugly. That however is now slowly changing, we have seen some very decent EV design recently, and a case in point is this new JAC 330.

The JAC Refine S7 SUV is finally ready, seen here in dark red flanked by stern looking creatures wearing white gloves. What is that all about?! The Refine S7 features a distinctive grille with a lot of shine and a black upper bar with the new JAC logo in it. Wheels look sporty but a tad too small.
Only a strong man can withstand the sight of the grille of the new JAC M6. It measures about one square meter in total and it is shiny from top to bottom and side to side. That is quite a sight.
