A Chinese competitor of GAZelle arrived in Russia: details about JAC Sunray

JAC brought to Russia the Sunray model, which is called a competitor of GAZelle. The possible appearance of a car in Russia was first discussed back in 2019.

The creators describe the Sunray as a “quality and modern van with a low cost of ownership” that can become an indispensable business assistant. The car should go on sale at the end of summer, while pre-orders are already being accepted, and the Kazakh plant SaryarkaAvtoProm will be engaged in production for Russia.

The JAC Sunray is not only available as a van. It is also offered as a minibus, a manufactured goods van and a chassis on which almost any superstructure can be mounted, like on a GAZelle. Russian companies are already negotiating with JAC to create such add-ons.

In Kazakhstan, Sunray is sold with a 2.7-liter JAC turbocharged diesel engine with a capacity of 156 hp, working in conjunction with a six-speed “mechanics” and rear-wheel drive. It is expected that in Russia the engine will be derated to 150 hp.
