Default pick-up sales in china

Pickup sales show robust growth in first 11 months
By Shangguan Zhoudong (chinadaily.com.cn)
Updated: 2006-12-26
"In the first 11 months of this year, ten registered pickup brands recorded 131,020 in sales, up 199.9 percent from the same period last year.
Great Wall Motors (43,300 sales) topped pickup sales during the period, accounting for 33.1 percent of China's pickup market.
The second and third pickup makers in terms of sales and market shares were Jiangling Motors Co Ltd (21,900 sales, 16.7 percent) and Zhengzhou Nissan Automobile Co Ltd (19,900 sales, 15.2 percent).
Following two were Hebei Zhongxing Automobile Co Ltd (18,426 sales) and Beiqi Foton Motor Co Ltd (11,447 sales), comprising 14.1 and 8.7 percent respectively of the market."

Seems like the pick-up truck has caught the attention of the chinese consumer. Does anyone know the reason behind this sudden surge?

i have a very rich friend in Dubai, he has few expensive european cars, but for his daily drive to work or buisness he prefers a single can toyota hilux 2700 petrol injection, he says the small cab (2 seater) and the powerful engine gives good airconditioning value during the hot summer. he hardly uses the truck floor space as is intended. i drove the hi lux my self and liked it a lot

thanks for the post gbj. i never heard of the "single can toyota hilux 2700 petrol injection". this must be a special version for the middle-east w/ a built-in luxury toilet, or maybe an economy version w/ch comes w/ a can holder instead of a cup holder for those long road trips into the desert. we all know that its difficult to find a public washroom out in the sands. which is it, i wonder.

Here in canada we have the japanese and american models to consider. n.american deisel technology is primative by euro/asian standards. General Motors makes a horrible deisel prone to early failure and poor fuel economy.
Chinoy, i gasped when i saw the prices in U$D you quoted for pickups...
I am currently pricing a full sized Ford F150 Crew Cab with a few options and the price tops out at $45,000 CDN$ for a gaser or $52K for a deisel.
Looking at the numbers, i assume that canadian made pickup trucks have a profit margin over 55%. This plainly explains the high depreciation and the ability of auto sellers to offer no money down and zero interest rates for five years (longer that the warranty, lol)
We are being cheated. The beauty is, chinese imports will be well received if they are durable. Competition is the part of capitalism that n.america forgets quickly.
And the [email protected] blame retirement costs for lower sales and profits, not senior mismanagement. The local ford dealer has hundreds of crew cab pickup trucks with poor mileage (they make a ten, yup ten cylinder motors) which they produce as if gas (petrol) was back to pre iraq prices.
