Chinese cars in Argentina: CVN Motors

Grupo Iraola, the industrial group settled in Venado Tuerto, famous for the assembly of Chinese motorbikes and car cushions under the brand "Corven", will start to import Foton trucks (the Aumark S), passenger vehicles (the brand was Chinese, but no data of what brand it is) and electric buses of Zhongtong and King Long. The vehicle import division will be called "CVN Motors".

Chinese share of Iranian car production, 2017-18

Iran produced 1.44 million passenger cars in 2017-18 (A.P. 1396), of which over 223,000 were Chinese models assembled locally. Also, about 60% of the number of models produced in the country were of Chinese origin. I suppose one can safely say that Iran is the largest producer of Chinese cars outside China.

Please see attached PDF for details; notify if any mistakes.

After the incontrollable dollar price rising, car brands in Argentina are getting nervous. The Chinese (and imported) cars will suffer the consequences of today's Lebac's expiring too.
In another car brand, there was a meeting yesterday to assess whether they were still selling to the network or gave the order to stop operations. It was decided to continue the activity and wait for what happens today with the Lebac...
Hope that this won't be the end of 10 years of Chinese cars in Argentina.

Iranian car production, 2018-19

Iran produced 892,000 passenger cars and 51,000 pickups in 2018-19 (A.P. 1397), of which over 168,000 (18%) were Chinese models assembled locally. Also, over 55% of the number of models produced in the country were of Chinese origin.

Some recent Chinese-sourced vehicles assembled from kits locally are not included in the table. I think this could be due to not meeting local content requirements enough to be categorized as a "national" product.

Iran is the number one destination of exported Chinese vehicles, and now I guess the same could be said of Chinese auto assembly operations.

In addition to the 14 shown above, are five additional Chinese makes which have been assembled in Iran:

Changfeng - Kerman Khodro
Zotye - Rigan Khodro
Huanghai - Azar Motor
Hawtai - Kerman Khodro
Zhongxing

Corrections or additions are welcome....

Leopaard CS10 and Hawtai A25 were planned by Rigan Khodro in 2017-2018, some kits could have been test-assembled but the two models have not been offered as locally assembled products (till March 2019, Rigan did not even have its own assembly line and used sister company Rayen Vehicle Manufacturing's facility).

Some Chinese makes are hidden under local brand names, e.g. Zhongxing is present in the table as Bahman Capra; the Landmark stopped being produced in the year AP 1395. Zotye is represented by Rigan (Coupa) and Saipa (Ario) which are in the table. Huanghai, as AMICO, is in the table.

There are a few more Chinese models assembled but not included in the table by MIMT. These would include the Rayen Vela V5, production of which was recently revived, and new introductions like BAIC X25, Bisu T3 and T5, Foton Sauvana, Hanteng X7 and X5, Chery Arrizo 6, or MG RX5.

Hi all
I've been here before, but I lost my details so I reregistered.

Have you heard about Fahd Egypt?
https://www.facebook.com/FAHD-Egypt-1790647681262038/

IFG Group which imports Jinbei, Soueast, Victory to China added Fahd recently. I know their truck - it is the Zhongxing Terralord.

But I have trouble with the Haise microbus. Is it a badge engineered Jinbei Haise?

On this picture you can probably see the Chinese manufacturer, but my Chinese is very limited:


It starts with Jin, but not Jinbei I think

Thanks
Pal Negyesi

Jincheng of Qinhuangdao, Hebei lost in a suit brought by Brilliance Jinbei in 2005-2006. But apparently it continues to produce this model, which is a duplicate of others that have been produced by companies like Tianqi Meiya, Great Wall, BAW,and Jiangnan.
I seriously doubt it has a license from Jinbei or Toyota, and thank you Pal, I didn't know it continues to be exported.

Besides Fahd, the same vehicle is also sold in Egypt by Zemex (covered in our forum) and another company, Sigma Auto.

P.S. I think a couple of their vans still have valid type approvals in China.

About a decade and a half ago, I too learned a lot from Pál. His knowledge about the obscurest of car builders is phenomenal!

Here are two of his sites he told me about in 2015:
http://automuseums.info/
http://ceautoclassic.eu/

Fun fact: I believe Erik and Pál have both worked on one (or more) of Mr. Georgano's car encyclopediae.
