The history of the automobile brand Lifan takes itsbeginning in 1992. Under it are cars, buses, scooters, etc. The development of the company can hardly be called impetuous, since its products have been intended for a long time only for domestic markets. In 2001, the first attempts were made to conquer the Japanese buyer. Two years later, it was decided to expand production, and Lifan Industry Group released the first trucks. In 2005, the first "cars" appeared.
In 2014 Lifan's lineup was replenished with a new car with an index of 720, in Russia it is known as "Lifan Sebrium". Experts' comments assured the buyers that the model is equipped in accordance with modern requirements.
