Another world premiere for April's Auto Shanghai 2017 has been been added to just-auto.com's debuts list. Astonishingly, the poor selling Citroën C5 is to be given yet another facelift.

Information on the majority of these models can be found by searching PLDB, just-auto's global vehicle database. Simply click on the link at the end of this list.

Bisu T5: seven-seat crossover to sit in the range above the T3 and due to be on sale across China from the second half of 2017

Buick Regal: project E2SB is the same car as the next Opel Insignia Grand Sport and Holden Commodore and therefore a five-door hatchback (the outgoing model is a sedan)

Cadillac XT5 PHEV: same 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and electric motor as the CT6 PHEV

Changan CS55: new 4.5m long SUV, 1.5-litre turbo engine, due on sale in China from the second half of 2017

Citroën C5 facelift: this aged sedan has been built in China since November 2009 and in France since the first quarter of 2008

DS world premiere: details under embargo

HaiMa S3 Young: after three years of production, a facelift and a new name for the S5

Hyundai Mistra facelift: this C-D segment sedan's premiere was at the same event four years ago

Mercedes-Benz small car concept: more or less a sedan version of the next generation A-Class and aimed at the 1 Series sedan which BMW builds in Shenyang with Brilliance. There will be standard and long-wheelbase cars. Will use MFA2 platform and the LWB car will be locally manufactured by the Beijing Benz joint venture.

Mini John Cooper Works Countryman: 170kW (231hp) and 350Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol turbo, AWD, on sale from May

Nissan Kicks: China's version of the existing Brazil- and Mexico-made small SUV will of course be made in partnership with Dongfeng

Peugeot 5008: Dongfeng Peugeot's locally made model has a different front end to that of the model in France at Rennes

Volkswagen electric SUV concept: details are still being gathered from sources but the platform will be MEB and this design study will evolve into a production model from 2020 onwards. The prototype should share much with the I.D. Buzz concept from the 2017 Detroit auto show. This had all-wheel drive and two electric motors.

Wey S01: Great Wall's additional brand is to be positioned above but only just above the pricing levels of Haval SUVs, and Wey's all-SUV range will be a line-up of vehicles which will have Haval equivalents
