Zhonghua BS6 Chinese Luxury Sedan.
- Gets two stars in NHIST crash test.
- Auto-mag reviewers blast it for being so 90s.
- Fails to pass California emissions.
Zhonghua BS6 is going to haunt all Chinese brands for years, just like how Landwind tarnished Chinese brands in Europe with its 0 EuroNCAP score...
Can you be a little less racist, that was rude. I'm sure you've neveredge said:Koreans are the most superficial, shallow, simple minded people on earth.
In Korea, Korean cars have over 90% market share. (Lexus was the topthey NEVER buy their own brand of cars when given a choice. I live in California, and in both the bay area and LA, which have HUGE numbers of Koreans, I have ONLY ONCE met a Korean who bought a Korean brand car, a Hyundai. ONLY ONCE. The vast majority buy Japanese cars because they are image conscious and they don't want to be personally associated with the poor brand image of Hyundai. That's exactly how superficial they are.
Actually there was a news article on Chinese newspapers about 10 Chinese misconception of the world early this year in hopes of broadening average Chinese's understanding of the outside of the world, and the very misconception abut Korean auto market was discussed.edge said:The only reason why Korean cars completely dominant their domestic market is because the Korean govt. SHUTS OFF foreign competition and foreign brands. Maybe in recent years, they have allowed a trickle of foreign brands into the country, but Korea is nowhere as open as China is when it comes to trade and investment.
Real_I_Hate_China said:4 out of 5 auto manufacturers in Korea are foreign owned(GM, Renault, SAIC, and Tata).
GM has (GM)Daewoo, Renault has (Renault) Samsung, and SAIC has
Ssangyong, but who does Tata own? (Note, Hyundai and Kia are
owned by Hyundai).
Daewoo's mid-heavy truck/tractor business.who does Tata own?
koreans are extremly narrow-minded, you don't need to run ads on TV everyday to remind them, they grow up in a culture that is extremly narrow-minded and resistis everything/everyone foreign.Real_I_Hate_China said:...Even worse, turn on the TV and nobody drives around in Korean brand cars anymore.
There is nothing high quality about hundai/kie, they are mediocre at the best. Only koreans think they are actually making something durable, another example how narrow their view is.Real_I_Hate_China said:...
..Only two mass-market auto manufacturers in the world put out higher quality vehicles than Hyundai does for the moment, Toyota and Honda.
