Auto-sales-statistics-China-Roewe_i6-sedanMonthly and annual sales figures for the Roewe i6 in China.

The i6 was launched in Q1 of 2017 as a replacement to both the Roewe 550 and the Roewe 750, which was a continuation of the Rover 75 (yes, this was in production until 2016). SAIC will also launch a PHEV version of the large sedan, called ei6.

After its first crossover, the Roewe RX5, the i6 is SAIC’s first sedan with its new corporate design, and it immediately is one of the most mature looking Chinese sedans on the market. Gone are all the frivolous shapes and shiny chrome accents, well except for the grille, that is. You could almost call it boring. The i6 launches in one of the most difficult segments in China, that of affordable compact sedans, but still a segment with a lot of potential. Power comes from either a 1,0T three-cylinder with 125hp/170Nm mated to a 6MT or 7DCT gearbox or a 1,5T with 170hp/250Nm also mated to a 6MT or 7DCT gearbox. The i6e will be powered by a 1-liter three-cylinder withh 125hp and a 82hp electric motor. Dimensions are 4.671/1.835/4.460mm with a wheelbase of 2.715mm.

Prices run from 89.800 yuan to 143.800 (€11.600,- / US$13,000 to €18.600 / US$20.800), which puts makes it more expensive than rival domestic sedans like the Chery Arrizo5 (58.900 yuan) or Geely Emgrand GL (69.800 yuan), but below foreign brand sedans like the Nissan Sylphy (99.800 yuan) or Volkswagen Lavida (109.900 yuan).

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