Likely a China only name...obviously taste in names is country and language specific, so it’s not really for us to say...

What is going on with these gargantuan wheel arches and tiny wheels?

Right??

This said - if they filled those arches with wheels - this would actually look pretty good. And might be a decent competitor to the Kona EV.

Continuing the f*cking GM tradition of naming vehicles after distinctive and well known places it has nothing to do with and where it has no bloody effect.

Kia got it right with the Tell-U-Ride as 90% of them are destined uber/lyfts or rental fleets. Its a name sake that matches function.

My first thoughts too;

The car itself is giving some Toyota vibes, a bit non descript and anonymous looking;
