The 2009 Saab 9-5-derived C71 sedan isn’t the only model BAW (that’s short for Beijing Auto Works) is planning to reveal at this month’s Beijing motorshow. Other debuts from the Chinese automaker include a little egg of a car and some very… Land Rover- and Jeep Wrangler-like entries into the sport-utility segment.

The smaller, electric hatchback model is called the C30 EV (somewhere a Volvo attorney just got a migraine), and it looks like a first-generation Insight-baby after a few too many Happy Meals, with a Yaris and a Fit for parents…

The SUVs are:

1) “007″ (in black): Using what is no doubt some sort of reference to the secret agent, BAW says this is a compact SUV with “Jeep family characteristics”. I don’t see it. It may be coming with both a 2.0 and 2.4 liter engines and 2- / 4-wheel drive.

2) the Land Rover-y “B90″ (in silver): No information, other than that it “resembles a Land Rover style, body dominated by straight lines and edges.” Clearly.

3) the Jeep Wrangler (body) /Land Rover (fascia)-inspired “B40″ (in red): Supposedly based on a shortened platform and the mechanics of the B90.

Ah, Beijing Auto Works; keeping the Chinese design-ripoff stereotype alive and kicking well into the 21st century.
