The Zotye T600 debuted as a concept on the Beijing Auto Show in April. Many, including the Chinese automotive press, say it loox too much like an Audi Q5, especially from behind. We, agree. Zotye however doesn’t care, they copy whatever they want and bring it to the market no matter what. See this Z300, see this Z100, both shameless copies indeed. The T600 SUV will join the line-up in 2013, price will start around 100.000 yuan.
Less Audi up front. Engine is a 1.5 turbo based on the Mitsubishi-sourced 1.5 that powers the Z300. In non-turbo form it poops out 120hp and 143nm, with turbo it hits a decent 155hp. Zotye says they developed the turbo by themselves. We find that hard to believe. Gearbox: 5-speed manual or 5-speed automatic. Size: 4635/1892/1668, wheelbase is 2880, and those numbers make this T600 the biggest Zotye so far.
