I think a domestic car company should make an exact replica but with a different name and sell them locally @ half price....

Qoros 3 sedan?

We need another ****ing car company with number names?

BMW 3 series
Mazda 3
Audi A3

Can these people not invent names like they had to do for their company?

On the other hand, that interior looks better than the 3 series . Car looks like the most non-nondescript design I've seen though. Ala VW.

In addition to Audi, I see simplified, cribbed elements from Infiniti's book in that C pillar treatment.

I have visited some of the larger Chinese trade shows. I have been visiting China for 20 years now. In the 90s they have only rare govt cars on makeshift roads. Now they have roads better than ours and giant glass airports terminals better than any in USA.It is notable how many copy cars and trucks they make. The other thing is they must have over 100 motorcycle manufacturers and dozens of auto makers. Motorcycles run on propane, electric and gasoline. Trucks run on propane and diesel. They manufacture many electric bicycles, cars and buses.





this electric only cost $9500

The Qoros 3 Sedan, the first offering from Qoros Automotive, achieved a maximum five-starts in the European NCAP (New Car Assessment Program) crash tests. Headquartered in China, Qoros is an all-new automaker drawing on European part suppliers and design talent to build high quality cars. “The Qoros 3 Sedan scored highly in all four areas of the Euro NCAP tests and has the best overall performance of all vehicles assessed so far in 2013, placing it amongst the very best ever tested by Euro NCAP.” – - Qoros Media
Lololol, I'm honestly surprised.

Engineering outfit FreeValve, a sister company to Swedish supercar marque Koenigsegg, is developing a new type of engine that does away with the camshaft.

The so-called “camless” engine relies on pneumatic valve actuators to open valves, which are then closed by air pressure or springs. The process is referred to as Pneumatic Hydraulic Electric Actuation (PHEA).

The beauty of PHEA is that it enables an engine’s ECU to have full control over each individual valve. Where camshaft technology has always been limited to the relationship between the valves and the camshaft position, PHEA allows independent control over every valve’s precise opening/closing position and timing throughout the combustion cycle.

According to FreeValve, PHEA will allow car companies to deliver powertrains that are smaller, lighter and more powerful than existing designs but with greater economy and reduced emissions.

FreeValve has said in the past it’s working with OEMs to get the technology into mass-produced cars. One of those is China’s Qoros, which used this week’s 2016 Beijing Auto Show to present a concept car fitted with one of FreeValve’s camless engines.

The concept is called the Qoros Qamfree, and it was unveiled by FreeValve CEO Urban Carlsson and Chairman Christian von Koenigsegg. Von Koenigsegg, of course, is also CEO and co-founder of Koenigsegg.

“We are both pleased and proud to have found such a willing industry partner as Qoros to complete the transition of FreeValve’s PHEA technology from a working concept to a production application for passenger vehicles” Carlsson said at the unveiling.

Unfortunately, no solid specs or a potential release date were mentioned. As previously reported, refinement and reliability remain major hurdles.
