JAC Vision IV

These renderings of JAC's upcoming A-segment rival have surfaced on the Web prior to the car's official unveiling at next week's Auto China motor show in Beijing. Called the Vision IV concept, the diminutive urban vehicle was designed at the Chinese automaker's Italian design studio in Turin.

Barely over a decade old, JAC (Anhui Jianghuai Automobile) is looking to make inroads into the city car segment. While the company currently sells the A0 and the Tojoy - a Pininfarina-designed A-segment car - in China's domestic market, JAC's primary focus is on larger vehicles, such as the Rein SUV, the Refine MPV and commercial vehicles. In recent years it has also developed the attractive B-Class sedan, in collaboration with Pininfarina.

Though details remain scarce, the Vision IV concept will apparently be fitted with an electric hybrid system to supplement its small displacement engine.

We'll bring you more information when we see the concept in the metal in Beijing next week.
