The F16 was first shown as a production-ready concept car at the 2011 Chengdu Auto Show. This concept was a very obvious copy of the Audi A4 Avant, including the single frame grille. That model fortunately never made it into series production, but Yema did make 100 units of an electric version which were used as taxis in Yema’s home town of Chengdu. In 2014, the F16 was finally launched for sales and by that time the design of the front was much more original. The rear reminds of the Subaru Forester, like the F12 and F99 also do. However, it still uses the platform of the Austin Maestro, which was developed in the late 1970s in the UK and after several owners in Bulgaria and China ended up at the Yema brand.
