Now we have a preview of Changan Auto’s V802 Concept, a compact hatch in a similar segment to the Honda Fit or Mazda2. Changan hasn’t confirmed any production plans, but when you consider how close to production this concept already seems we believe the green-light is a sure bet. Next month’s Beijing event should also provide us with more clues about the car’s future, including the new mechanical package residing underneath its sheet metal.
The sheer number of Chinese carmakers planning hatchback concepts for this year’s Beijing event shows the market is maturing and is now looking past the sedan. You can see our previous story on Geely’s new CE hatch concept by clicking here.
