Arrow Tongtian / Jiangnan Glow

Jiangbei Machinery Plant built a car called Golo that looked like a VW Polo, does anyone have a picture of it ?

Default Golo

The Golo 阁萝, or Glow, was produced by Jiangbei which later became Tongtian, and in late 2005 was absorbed by Jiangnan Auto down in Hunan Province. According to Xinhuanet.com in November 2003, this model was "independently" developed with the help of "German experts". However another source indicates that the model is a Suzuki Alto knockoff.

It is also said that VW was planning to take legal action against Tongtian for IPR infringement, i.e. it was a copy of the Polo. Don't know if this squares with your info Phaeton but thought I'd pass it along.

One more thing. In September 2004, CBU reported that a second generation of the Glow, Glow Liangjing and Glow Meijing, with panoramic sunroofs were introduced in August of that year.

Thanks dragin

Yep thats the reason I wish to look at the Golo.

The whole supposed copying of Polo front I do see it in the Glow

Polo is similar in name to Golo (also VW have th Gol name) so for VW to stop Jiangbei from using it shows how much sway VW have in China

Well if VW has sway in china .. then

They should kidnap the owner of that Jingybingy
Excute hime and hang him on a popular square in china

So he will be an example of ppl copying VW cars , and they will have thier full Sway , no courts attached ! :P

Golo? Sounds like Go-Lo (pronounced Go-Low) which is a chain of discount retailers here in South Australia. What a pathetic name for a car and thats not even taking into consideration the fact that its supposed to rip off the Polo name used by VW.
