Chinese Have Presented a Production Car Without an Engine

The concept demonstrates the brand's new corporate identity, which will be used for the FAW Bestune B70, a production sedan.

It will be released by the end of 2020.

China-based FAW has introduced a new brand design language. The FAW Bestune B2, a concept sedan, demonstrates design of future production «passenger cars» of the brand. In fact, the show car is a harbinger of the next-generation sedans, although about half of the elements born of the designers' imagination will be used for production models. The show car does not have a powertrain: it is a layout that demonstrates the development of the brand's design.

It is unlikely that the commercial Bestune B2 will retain frameless doors, rear-view cameras and large 22-inch wheels. In reality, everything will be much more prosaic. But the overall style and design of the front end should be preserved.

It is assumed that the interior of the production sedan will retain the abundance of displays demonstrated by the concept. However, the touchscreen, disguised as an opaque front fascia, will still have to be forgotten. The designers will probably offer a simpler solution with the usual touch screen.

The manufacturer has not provided any information about the Bestune B2’s powertrain. The public was shown a bright «wrapper», inside of which there was no power unit yet. Whether the new sedan will have autonomous control technology is also not mentioned. Everything will be known closer to the end of this year, when the production model will be released. It is known that the Chinese certification database already has images of the FAW Bestune B70 Sedan, which is designed in the new style demonstrated by the concept.

Rumor has it that the Bestune B70 is built on a front-wheel drive platform and is equipped with a 1.5-liter 169-hp petrol turbo engine. With a wheelbase of 2,800 mm, the overall length of the sedan is 4,810 mm. Later, the Bestune’s line-up will be supplemented by several more sedans in the same style, including a production embodiment of the spectacular concept.
