But these articles say it will be based on the C1 platform and be very similar (technically) to the Ford Focus Classic sedan (C307). The tentative dimensions and wheelbase indicate it to be almost identical.

That is what the article (linked in post #29) talks about, i.e. Focus production, and C346 is its internal designation
The C307-based I06 is not produced yet.
The Alsvin V3 has been made all this while, even while the plant was being renovated.

It seems that the project I06, clearly a nearly rebadged Focus Classic (look at the sizes!), was initiated in the time that joint-ventures were forced to start their China-only brand (like Venucia, Zinoro etc). It is unclear to me if Ford would have used its Jiayue brand, but now it looks like the I06 will be just a Changan-Ford. (?)

On April 1,2014, gasgoo.com speculated that the production of the "Carnival" (read Fiesta) might take place at the Haerbin site, but here's how they report it in the present:

Here's a look at Hafei's Fantasy going back to better days......

After the separation of Changan-Ford and Changan-Mazda, it became necessary for Ford to vacate the latter's plant in Nanjing where the Fiesta was being made. At the same time, the Harbin plant was almost idle, so Changan-Ford felt it prudent to consider acquiring that unit. Anyway, Fiesta production has not taken place in China beyond November 2015.
