Another spy video of GM Hongtu
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
After first reporting the spy video revealing GM’s MPV plan, another video of Wuling Hongtu showing off its skin has surfaced from Baroda, Gujarat.
The Hong Tu was originally developed for the Chinese Markets by GM and its Chinese partners Wuling and SAIC and was premiered at the Beijing motor show. During the launch, GM mentioned that in order to make Hongtu handle like a car, they had tested it for 170,000 kilometers using the same standards adopted for medium and high-end passenger cars.
In India, Hongtu will have to battle it out in the segment having Maruti EECO and other smaller vans. It will manufactured locally and should come with a small petrol and diesel engine.
