2013 Qoros Saloon Spied Testing In Spain

Qoros is a Chinese automaker co-owned by Chery Automobile and Israel Corporation founded in 2007 under the name Chery Quantum Automotive Qorporation, that was changed to Qoros Auto last November. Qoros is now planning to launch several new models in Europe. Currently they are testing C11 saloon in Spain. The car was tested by Magna Steyr engineers, that could mean it will be built in some part here in Europe not in China. The C11 is about the same size as Volkswagen Bora.

Qoros Auto Co., Ltd. is an automotive manufacturing company headquartered in Shanghai, China and a 50:50 joint venture between Chery Automobile and Israel Corporation. It was founded in December 2007 under the name Chery Quantum Automotive Corporation (CQAC) and the company name was changed to Qoros Auto Co., Ltd. on November 28, 2011.[1] The partners are investing an initial US$1.5 billion in the venture.[2]

Power will likely come from a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol mated to either six-speed manual or automatic transmission.

The idea behind Qoros is to combine German quality with Japanese convenience and functionality. Their plan could work as company’s vice chairman is a former Volkswagen executive Volker Steinwascher and the design of Qoros line-up is led by former MINI designer Gert Hildebrand.

A hatchback and crossover are also planned so we should hear a lot more about the Qoros in the near future.
