FAW Besturn X40

Auto-sales-statistics-China-FAW_Besturn_X40-SUVMonthly and annual sales figures for the FAW Besturn X40 in China.

The X40 is similar in size and price to the FAW Xenia R7, launched last May, and they share the same platform and technology. Makes sense to develop 2 models? Well, consider this: FAW is a huge conglomerate that consists of a number of subdivisions and these have differences in popularity by region or market, so while it’s indeed hugely inefficient, there is at least some economy of scale to be gained. The Besturn X40 is powered by a 1,6-liter engine with 115hp/155Nm, mated to either a 5MT or a 6AT transmission. Dimensions are 4.310/1.780/1.680mm with a 2.600mm wheelbase.

Prices start at 66.800 yuan and run up to 101.800 yuan (€8.650,- / US$9,700 to €13.200 / US$14.800), right between rivals like the also very fresh and ultra-cheap Baojun 510 (54.800 yuan), the Changan CS35 (79.900 yuan) and the JAC Refine S3 (65.800 yuan), and far below foreing models like the Hyundai ix25 (also known as Creta elsewhere) at 119.800 yuan.

Car sales statistics from China only include domestic production and exclude imported models.
