If Ji'ao could produce a self-developed model with even Hyundai or Subaru quality, no one would care what the heck the name was.
With a competitive price, it would fly off the showroom floors. But in the case of Ji'ao, the capital to get the job done is lacking, and so it's not likely to happen.

right but a better name can make it faster to be a leading company...and gonow sounds like a russian company, if you try to sell this car in Turkland, no one belives it was a chinese company; everyone thinks it is a russian car...

Why not market the car as Ji'ao though? Honestly, it really is a nice name to pronounce (its catchy like kia and asuna), definitly Pinyin, and may not sound like something you would buy in the back of a flea market (Like a Meiya)

Companies like Dadi and Forta etc. etc. all made the choice to pick a garbage nane to market reBadged honda passports and Toyota Hilux and they are obscure for that alone, regardless if they have good qulity or not. Think about it...

Jiao sounds like it not worth a Yuan.
I dont see anything particularly wrong with GoNow. Ford is a river crossing. Pontiac and Chevrolet are not English words.
Reliability will be the bring problem. You never want people to say "GoNow stop tomorrow". People will do that sort of thing TOYOTA people say stands for The One You Ort To Avoid (take the first letters.).
Car makers will always make erros in name Pajero is supposedly not a good word in some countries but it does get you noticed.

give it time to prove itself; everything sounds strange the first time out. granted western thinking is different than that of the east but in time to come the name may be accepted. in the late seventies when the japanese were coming into their own the names that are now accepted, honda (civic), toyoda, nissan must have sounded like foolishness to the westerner who was used to such names as thunderbird, camaro, skylark (buick). in the english speaking caribbean where the countries are former colonies of Britain we were used to names as the hillman, the austin cambridge, the triumph toledo. all these came from a european culture but in time through their reliability we embraced them as our own. time will tell, give gonow a shot.

How do you pronounce it ? I bet anything that isn't the phonetic spelling.

The only thing I can find is :
J-ee-ow.

It sounds like you stubbed your toe.

How about "Jeebao".
That's easy to say and spell.
Might have a problem with Chrysler though because of the similarity to "Jeep".

hope to understand that every words has his meaning
It is not just a single word,and even words have different meaning in every country.By the way, different country,different culture.

GO: 出发,行动,进取——广汽吉奥永远向前,永远行进在路上;行者无疆,自强不息。
GO: start, action, enterprising——GAC GONOW will go forward with self-discipline.
GO NOW: 立刻出发,立即行动——立即行动,才能把握现在,掌控未来;立即行动,才能抓住机遇,发展壮大 。
GO NOW: Go now, immediately——go now, you can grasp now and size future; go now, you can grasp opportunity and be stronger.
GO ON: 继续,持续——专心致志,锲而不舍,不断追求卓越,不断超越自我,才能实现长远可持续发展。
GO ON: continue—— Only by focus and perseverance, pursue excellence and challenge yourself, you can realize long term sustained development.
GO UP: 攀升,上升——广汽吉奥将始终保持勇于开拓、积极向上的精神,追求新目标,跨越新台阶,实现新突破,创变新 格局。
GO UP: Rising, Climbing——GAC GONOW will always keep exploring and proactive spirit to pursue new goals, transcend new step, and realize new breakthrough and new pattern finally.
GO ALL OUT: 全力以赴——无论什么目标,无论何种产品,无论哪道工序,无论哪个细节,广汽吉奥人都会全力以赴,追求完美 ,以高品质的产品和高质量的服务铺就广汽吉奥汽车走向全球的道路。
GO ALL OUT: Do with all efforts——whatever the goal, whatever the product, whichever work procedure, whichever details, GAC GONOW people will go all out with perfect, that is, pave way for GAC GONOW in globe with high quality product and high standard service.
除了“GO”的组合外,广汽吉奥LOGO还是两个同心圆的组合,彰显企业“同心”特质,寓意“同心协力”、 “步调一致”,而且是从同一个原点出发。
Except for the combination of “GO”, the GAC GONOW LOGO is also combination of two concentric circles, signifying “same heart” “work together” “keep in step”, and also start from the same point.
同时,同心圆的构图,还表达了广汽吉奥人对中国传统文化中“和” 的理解和领悟,表达广汽吉奥以共生、和谐的姿态谋求发展,以融入行业、融入社会、融入世界为现实追求,期待 广汽吉奥事业的良性循环,实现长远可持续发展。
Meanwhile, the concentric circles design expresses the understanding the “harmony” in Chinese traditional culture. It also signs that GAC GONOW pursues development with harmony and integrates into industry, society and world. It is looking forward for the virtuous circle and realizing long-term sustained development.
两个同心圆一大一小完美包容,展现出广汽吉奥兼容并蓄、海纳百川的博大胸怀和高远志向。
Two concentric circles---one big and one small, co-existence in perfect, showing old saying “all rivers run into sea”

I'm a fluent English speaker from Ca, USA. "Go Now," I don't have a problem with. The problem I see is if it is mistaken for "Gon-Ow." When you put two words together such as Go and Now with no way to distinguish how it should be said it can cause problems. "GoNow." would make more sense or "Go-Now."
