Etsong QE6400.jpg

Etsong (颐中) Ruby (陆豹) (QE6400). 2000–3 (prod. n/a). 5-door sedan. F/F, 1342 cm³ (I4 OHC). Austin Maestro built by Chinese tobacco company, classed as a ‘bus’ for bureaucratic purposes. Not much development, since Etsong’s licence was for commercial vehicles, so more effort was paid to the QE6440 Maestro van. Toyota 1·3 engine, shared with various Xiali models. Licensed manufacture from Rover Group (or, specifically, a company manufactured the components and Etsong assembled them), and survived after Etsong joined the First Automobile Works group (FAW), who facelifted it.

Manufacturing location: Qingdao, Shandong, China

Marque: Etsong | Successor: Etsong Lubao
