Sketches give more clues to how Roewe N1 Concept will look
15 April 2009

SAIC Motors has revealed two further sketches of a concept car that it will unveil at the Shanghai motor show.

The Chinese state-owned company, which bought the rights to the Rover 25 and 75 models in late 2004, will be launching the Roewe N1 Concept.

Roewe's portfolio currently consists of the Rover 75-based 750 and the 550 compact saloon, which was designed and engineered in Britain and is a successor to the Rover 45.

SAIC also owns Nanjing Automotive, the Chinese company that bought the MG name. It has been rumoured that the company could use the MG name to market its products in Europe.

The Shanghai motor show begins next Monday, with autocar.co.uk's team of reporters bringing you all the stories and pictures from the show floor.

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best

    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
