Last year in Shanghai Auto Show a concept car named Roewe 350 was presented. The Roewe 350 was the mock-up of upcoming future 3G lifestyle cars. Roewe are luxury cars made by Chinese Car Company SAIC (Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation) using technology purchased from British company MG Rover.

Now the good news is that car is in production and will hit the market in April 23rd. The car will be equipped with GPS computer running Google Android version 2.1 same version is being used in Google HTC Nexus one and Motorola Driod. The 350 will be able to get all the latest real time traffic reports so drivers can avoid certain spots, the system also allows for direct web access from your car, and oddly it allows you to chat online.

The 350 will launch with a 1.5VVT engine, but a 1.5 Turbo engine is also in the works according to various different media outlets. The 1.5l engine is good for 105bhp and 135Nm of torque making it great for inner city jaunts. Pricing for the car is expected to range from $10,250 – $19,000
