Auto-sales-statistics-China-Zotye_5008_Nomad_II-SUVSales figures for the Zotye 5008 Nomad II in China.

The 5008 was and upgraded version of the Zotye 2008 which had been launched one year earlier. Both cars were produced on the production line of the first generation Daihatsu Terios, after that model ended production. It’s not entirely clear how Zotye acquired this line and if they also bought the rights to replicate the design. Read more about this story in our article about car models which continued to be produced under a new owner and a new name in China after having been retired from their original market. It was exported as the Zotye Nomad or Hunter, and in India as the Premier Rio with a Peugeot diesel engine.

In 2014 the 5008 was facelifted and renamed Zotye T200.
