Youngman Lotus T5 was debuted at Beijing earlier. Youngman is a Chinese manufacturer of automobiles and they sells Lotus pessenger car in China. The T5 is still a concept a market version is expected end of the year. T5 is built on our Proton Gen2 platform.
The names T5 was derived from 1.5 turbo 150hp engine that is still under development. Two other variant of current engine lineup is expected to reach the market first. We suspect that a 1.6 Campro on the Proton Exora could be used.
The price is expected to be sold at $16,000 (MYR 51,080) and will be the first SUV sold under Youngman-Lotus in China.
While many people are suspecting that this will also be the first SUV by Proton if they decides to bring it in and rebadge it for the Malaysia market.
