Ray Cunningham, an American who regularly visits North Korea, has just posted new photos of the Pyeonghwa showroom in Pyongyang. It looks as if they've switched to Golden Dragon for their Hiace clone needs.

Sitting inside the showroom there's also an FAW Oley (white this time) and some other new models to be identified.

These are all Chinese made vehicles, rebadged. You will notice Oley, Besturn, FAW-VW, King Long etc. They are not made or assembled in the DPRK.

Here's another new name for Erik's files.

The first issue of the Foreign Trade magazine for 2015 (embedded PDF file, go to page 10) includes a blurb for the Korea Kumphyong J. V. Company, which is hawking rebadged Chinese trucks under the "Kummae" name.

Thanks Gag! I added them to my North Korea file: http://www.chinesecars.net/free-info...de-north-korea.
I have no idea if these joint ventures function. I have never seen one of these cars on other photos than in these advertisements.
greetings!

Here's a Pyongyang taxi owned by Air Koryo, the North Korean airline. It was photographed by Simon Cockerell of Koryo Tours, who says that the badge on the grille is Air Koryo's logo.

And a bonus photo of the Chinese Ambassador's Hongqi outside a bar.

Thanks. I looked through lots of Chinese sedans trying to find it and did check the F3, but not the facelifted version.

Choson Exchange, a Singapore-based NGO that trains North Koreans in business skills, has posted scans of all the current Pyeonghwa Motors brochures from Pyoenghwa's Pyongyang showroom. I think there are a few models not on Erik's list yet.

P.S. There's also an account of a visit to the showroom in October, with a photo slideshow including, among other things, a rebadged Maxus van and a poster showing a full range of vehicles, including some typical Chinese trucks and minibuses.

Choson Exchange heard in 2012 that the Unification Church wanted to pull out, and it seems that they did.

The staff in the Pyongyang showroom said that it was a 100% DPRK company now and had been for "some years", but didn't have much time to chat: they were busy working with a group of Koreans looking to buy. Meanwhile, another group were test driving a jeep-like model.

Gag, it is not a Maxus but a Huanghai Ruitu. I integrated most of them already some weeks ago on my website: http://www.chinesecars.net/free-info...h-korea?page=8
It seems that there is now assembly of Chinese trucks inside the Sungri facility in Tokchon. Here is the article: http://www.naenara.com.kp/en/trade/?company+1+886
On Google Earth you can see that some of the halls are re-painted blue, as is quite often the colour of the car factory halls in China.
The Chinese partner seems to be Sinotruk.

I have questions about the Ppeokkuggi 2008. I have never seen a Beijing Jeep with this front end. Anybody any idea where it is from? The jeep is also in use in the army, at least it was shown during a military parade.
