Back in April this year, Chinese media reported that the Wuling brand had plans to go global, with three models to fuel its expansion.
According to slides from an internal presentation that leaked online, one of the models will be an SUV presented under the Ursa name at the time. Now, the brand owned by the SAIC-GM-Wuling joint venture has revealed official teaser images of the concept version of the SUV, which will be known as the Hong Guang X.
Comparing the teaser images with those from the leaked presentation makes it pretty clear that we’re talking about the same vehicle. Why the different names, then? Well, Wuling will probably name the SUV Ursa in export markets, with the Hong Guang X nameplate reserved for the domestic market.
