SEOUL, Jan. 10 (Yonhap) -- A Chinese sport utility vehicle, the Kenbo 600, will be launched in South Korea next week, becoming the first-ever Chinese passenger vehicle to be marketed here, the local importer of the car said Tuesday.

China-Korea Motor Co., the local importer and distributor of the Chinese vehicle, plans to unveil the Kenbo 600 in a ceremony to be held at its Incheon headquarters next Wednesday.

The Kenbo 600, marketed as the S6 in China, is a SUV produced by BAIC Motor Corp., the passenger car making unit of China's state-owned BAIC Group, the fourth-largest automotive group in China by output.

It will mark the first Chinese passenger car to be sold in South Korea. China-Korea Motor launched two Chinese commercial vehicles, including a mini truck, early last year.

The local importer of the Chinese vehicles is already taking pre-orders, with deliveries set to begin at the start of next month, a company official said.

The Kenbo 600 comes in two models with a starting price of 19.99 million won (US$16,644) for the Kenbo 600 Modern and 20.99 million won for the Luxury model.
