Made in China only models - by foreign JVs
 
When posting to the "foreign joint venture" section, it would be helpful and informative to know which models are made exclusively for the Chinese market, and not available in other markets around the globe.
So if the persons posting to this section, could add such a note to their posts it would be appreciated.
Thank you.

But what if such models eventually make it to other markets? Either via CBU exports or CKD/SKD kits, or if the foreign partner of the JV company thinks it would be successful in another market and begins to make it elsewhere?

Examples:
SVW Santana and Lamando (sold in the Philippines)
DY Kia Pegas (Soluto abroad)
BJ Hyundai Reina (sold in the Philippines)
Chevrolet Cavalier K216 (later sold in Mexico, Chile)
Chevrolet versions of Baojun models (Optra, new Captiva)

Is an exclusive variant (say China-specific LWB version of a foreign model) be considered an exclusive model in this case?

Examples: Audi A6L, BMW 5-Series LWB, Mercedes-Benz E-Class LWB (also later made in India)

Is a modified version of a foreign model (that may or may not be available in China already) be considered an exclusive model in this case?

Examples:
DF Honda Greiz
GAC Toyota Wildlander
GAC Honda Breeze

I was thinking along the lines of the BYD Denza and the SGM GL9 MPV. These I believe began their lives in China, and then later may have found markets outside the country.
