SVH is short for Sino Vehicle Hub.
This mini pickup is called the Tundar – that’s not a typo.
Over the years, there have been many reports of Chinese automakers shamelessly plagiarising existing models and calling it their own. In this case, the similarities to the copied model are more than only skin deep as its name, Tundar, is an obvious misspelling of Toyota’s Tundra pickup.
The SVH truly looks like a shrunken Tundra, right down to the way the “Tundar” name is stamped into the tailgate. The most notable element is the grille looks as though it’s actually lifted from the real Tundra – it’s huge on the small pickup. Speaking of small, the Tundar rolls on 13-inch wheels with fancy hubcaps.
Once more, on the topic of small, the SVH Tundar is powered by a naturally-aspirated 1.0L engine which, based on the images, harbours only three pistons. Output is not mentioned in CarBuzz’s story however knowing that its top speed is 100km/h, we’re thinking 50hp sounds about right.
Given these facts, we’re convinced the Tundar’s payload is exceptionally limited and we wouldn’t think of towing anything heavier than a goat…
The cabin also looks to be inspired by existing Toyota products as well as some Mercedes bits, namely the air vents. It does without an airbag and some elements give off an impression of being quite cheap. Frankly, though, the $6,000 asking sounds about right.
