BAIC 500 and 900 Concepts look cool, offer little info
According to CarNewsChina.com, the 500 concept looks to be purely a design study – a sort of homage to the Beijing BJ212 SUV, and it's unclear if this thing will ever see production. Still, it looks rough and ready – there are lots of styling elements here that take cues from off-road stalwarts like the Land Rover Range Rover and Toyota FJ Cruiser, albeit in a much more, uh, Chinese package.
The 900, on the other hand, takes the shape of a svelte sedan, and Ward's Auto reports that it's even built on the Mercedes-Benz E-Class platform, using V6 power from the German automaker. Ward's states that the 900 concept previews the next-generation design DNA for BAIC's premium models, and features large, carbon fiber gullwing doors that, obviously, will not make it to production.
