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?
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?
