2015 BAW BJ2030CEB2 (3 door wagon)

The 3-door wagon gets a new version, for the first time with the 5-slit grille from the smaller Zhanqi. Pictured is a variant with extra-high roof.

OK... Very confusing here. The Beijing Jeep BJ2020 and BJ212 were exported to Argentina in very very small batches, probably no more than 1500 off-roaders.
It was sold on Jeep dealers and on grey market importers. Exported probably from 1991 to 1996.
Going off-topic with this, BAIC started to export the X55 to my country.

BAW Zhanqi BJ2030CEB2 (long)

Looks like the extended 3-door hardtop version (see post #50) is on its way out. The dealers' lists for 2018 Zhanqi models show three variants only: Zhanqi 5-door CK, Zhanqi standard 5-door, and Gladiator. The list from Autohome shows the extended hardtop among discontinued models.

From Bitauto and Autohome:

BAIC has received an impressive quality rating from JD Power for its Senova model recently, but it seems the old BAW division is stuck in a time warp.
Case in point, some crude metal work, fit/finish, etc..
In particular see #53 for examples.

Units like BAW and Foton act more autonomously with respect to the parent group. In fact, BAW is not even owned by BAIC Group Co. Ltd. in the formal sense.

Quote from here as translated:
According to this idea, the reformed BAIC Holdings no longer manages the specific production and operation of the subordinate enterprises, but assigns directors and managers to the subordinate enterprises as the owners of the property rights, and influences the development of the enterprise through the board of directors of the enterprise. BAIC is mainly responsible for the macro planning and strategic layout of the Beijing auto industry.
Note: BAIC Holdings = BAIC Group Co. Ltd. now.

Read the last few paragraphs from the above link to see the twists and turns in the history of BAW (Beijing Automobile Manufacturing Co., Ltd.). The article is somewhat old (2009), so names and shareholders may have changed.

BAW is owned by "Beijing Automobile Assembly Factory", which is owned by Yao Changsheng, the general manager.

BAW current corporate profile: https://www.qichacha.com/firm_7286b0308c0ea72972d2ac3283634d76.html

P.S.: Also note, BAW and BAIC Off-Road (that makes BJ80/CTL151 and BJ40/L) are not formally related to each other. So never say the BJ80 (also called Yongshi) and BAW Yongshi (BJ2022JC and successors) are from the same firm :)
