You are right chinoy54. Beiqi Foton is a industry force to be reckoned with and recognized. As we see in Pokershark's article, Foton is a subsidiary of BAIHC (Beijing Auto Industry Holding Corp). So like Beijing Hyundai, Beiijing Auto Works, and Beijing Jeep (the former American Motors and Beijing Auto Works joint venture of 1983) it falls under the BAIHC umbrella.chinoy54 said:I'm officially requesting admin to create a new thread for BEIQI FOTON. Its one of the biggies in the chinese auto industry, & aggressively exporting.
If there's no justification for a separate thread for this truckmaker, I think there should be one for BAIHC whose holdings include passenger cars.
Given its hefty assets, I am surprised that it chooses to assemble a pickup that it purchases from body manufacturer Fudi Auto rather than designing its own. They use Fudi's short wheelbase version seen above.
