    Is a "non-loadbearing body" one that is not a monocoque but is mounted on a chassis?

    I suspect that will be good value for the Ultimate Edition of a very large car. We shouldn't be thinking of the sort of luxury found in an old UK LDV minibus and it does have that 224bhp turbocharged direct injection engine!

    I was wondering about that too, I'm rather surprised that the SUV would have a separate chassis after the work they have been doing on the MG/Roewe SUVs but these are commercial vehicles designed for serious weight and more importantly for the pickup to be customisable with different back ends. I did check the original Chinese text and think it does say, in your words "not a monocoque".
