The JAC Refine A60 was presented at the 16th International Automobile & Manufacturing Technology Exhibition (Auto Shanghai 2015) hosted at the China Expo Complex in Shanghai, Monday. Yang Jun, Head of Passenger Car Department of JAC Overseas Marketing, dispelled allegations the car is a copy of the popular Audi A6 model, saying “they probably do look similar but there is no copying.” The car is a mid-size Sedan using two four-cylinder petrol engines, one containing a 1.5 turbo-engine with a 174hp and 251nm, and the other a 2.0 turbo-engine with 190hp and 280nm. Both engines are coupled with a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. Auto Shanghai is one of the world’s leading trade fairs for automobiles. Taking place every two years since 1985, the show features thousands of exhibitions from national and international manufacturers. It will run until April 29. Annual automobile sales halved from 13.9 in 2013 to 6.9 percent in 2014. Despite this, around 23.49 million cars were sold in China in 2014, making the country the world’s biggest producer and consumer of automobiles.
