Huanghai Automotive is a pick up and suv maker, they make the Plutus pick up, the Landscape and Aurora suv's and this new one, the Faster.

The launch ceremony was nice with a short speech from a Huanghao official and these two girls dressed as cops, not as Chinese cops but as Huangtai-country cops.

The Faster on show was a black car against a black backdrop with girls dressed in mostly black outfits, perfect for taking a picture.

Engine is a Mitsubishi sourced 2.4 liter with 108kw/5250rpm and 170nm/3000rpm and it's weight is 1800kg so it will problably be faster than a QQ running on one cilinder.

It is a big car though, size is 4740x1845x1730, wheelbase is 2715. Just like all this kind of suv's or cuv's it will have almost everything standard, from dvd-screens to electric chairs and a sunroof.

These things usually come really cheap, my estimate for the Faster is around 13.000 dollar.

Re: Introducing: Dangdong ShuGuang (part of Liaoning ShuGuang Automotive Group)

One wonders how long Shuguang will hang onto this old, and much modified, body design of the Aurora. They did however manage to update the ancient instrument panel still seen in the Dawn Navigator.
Perhaps the new plant will turn out a new design series. It may even include an aligned pedal cluster.....

China's Huanghai pickups to be assembled in Nigeria

December 3 (Gasgoo.com)
BMGAUTO International and China's SG Automotive Group have been selected by the Ondo State Government of Nigeria in West Africa to build a CKD assembly plant of Chinese pickups, said a recent email from BMGAUTO International to Gasgoo.com.

Liaoning SG Automotive Group Co., Ltd. of China will supply the CKD parts for the Aurora and Plutus pickups. "We have already broken earth on this project to be completed by June 2010. The production capacity will be 10,000 units per year," BMGAUTO said in the email message.

Interviewed by Gasgoo.com yesterday, SG Automotive's subsidiary Huanghai Automobile Sales Co., which is in charge of export business of Huanghai-brand pickups and SUVs, confirmed that SG Automotive has reached a preliminary agreement with BMGAUTO for cooperation.

According to Huanghai Automobile's export executive Monica Wan, BMGAUTO is planning to introduce the Chinese auto company's assembly and related quality-control equipment. The two sides have clear intention of partnership and are optimistic about the prospect, she added.

Liaoning SG Automotive Group Co., Ltd., located in northeast China's Liaoning province, is an international automotive industry group and one of the major vehicle exporters in China. Currently its products are exported to Africa, South America and other overseas markets.

Let's hope that Shuguang doesn't suffer the same fate as Zhongxing with its ill-fated CKD assembly operation in Eygpt, by the Automotive Gate company (an AAV partner). It's not easy to run these remote operations that require careful oversight by homebase, and delicate handlng of cross cultural issues.
