I am entering the realm of speculation here - I believe DFM or any other hypothetical acquirer would still require an approval for this particular company to produce vehicles - approvals are given on an enterprise-basis. I find that the FJ6410 was notified in Notice #245 in February.
[Speaking of the Fujian group, even King Long has been similarly sitting on (or has scrapped) a proposed MPV project, "Jinrui" (XMQ6511GEG4C) for a couple of years, a vehicle almost identical to the old FAW Free Wind/Baolong MPVs. Of note, this was preceded by the defunct, identical Ruixi XML6510E by Golden Dragon/Jinlu in 2007.]
