This is the LUXGEN U6 TURBO, which premiered on Monday 11 Nov. 2013 and reflects - according to the promo - the “For you, For all, For Family” design philosophy by offering an exceptionally long wheelbase within a medium sized body. The car has a low step up height aimed at maximising interior space and vehicle access without sacrificing the manoeuvrability required for typical urban driving.
The Taiwanese company say the LUXGEN U6 TURBO carries a full assortment of leading-edge design features and technologies and can best be described (with magnificent hyperbole) as a vehicle of Beauty, Cool, Innovation, Bravo, Fantasy and HIT! Here’s why - in their own words.

HTC Smartphone sync, Voice command system and Think+Touch - whatever that is.
So there you have it. From the mysterious East comes another car you’ve never heard of. Still, fair do’s; we don’t yet know what it’s like in the flesh as it were. On a US dollar conversion the price for the top model should be around £20k if they choose to sell it here. Prepare to be amazed.
