NDRC approves pickup for FAW Lingyuan Automobile Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (The registered brand is FAW Linghe or FAC). We have seen this same vehicle approved previously under Doda (BAIC Ruili), Projen, and Jiefang/Lanjian (FAW Hongta) brands but none of these editions has been released yet.
If you are ever confused, always remember:
[T]here are now two successor companies of the original Linghe auto factory.
The first one is Liaoning Lingyuan Linghe Automobile Manufacturing Co., Ltd. which is the direct successor of the Linghe company. This is affiliated to CASC and is referred to as "Aerospace Linghe". Its enterprise code is "LH" and brand is LINGHE. This too sells trucks and LSEVs.
The second one is FAW Lingyuan Automobile Manufacturing Co., Ltd. This was a result of a JV with FAW in 1993. This is now owned jointly by FAW and [Shanghai] Feihe. Its enterprise code is "CAL" and brand is FAC.
but then also remember:
...the EV subsidiary of FAW Lingyuan is named FAW Linghe New Energy Automobile Manufacturing Co., Ltd.
