Yeah, what's up with that? Why are there no Chinese cars in HK? Not everyone is super rich in HK, right? Well, I guess only super rich buy cars and everyone else takes public transport.

How about taxi drivers? There's got to be a market for something...?

How about trucks/pickups? Buses? Motorcycles/Mopeds? etc. etc. ?

As you all know Hong Kong folks are very status conscious and so all the exotic carmakers have sales outlets there.

But Geely also has an office in Wanchai. And perhaps an R&D center. I read somewhere that in June of 2005 it signed an memorandum of understanding with the "Hong Kong Productivity Council" to invest $185 million for the production of a so called "GH1 premium sedan" with 3.0 liter engine. Production was scheduled for the second half of this year. Sale price was to be about Y300,000 (about $38,460).
Geely's partner in Hong Kong is Primustech.

Anyone heard or seen anything of Hong Kong Innovech's two seater lately?

70 % of private buses (not the public bus companies) are Chinese made bus. They were introduced several years ago. Those buses are mainly used for tourist buses and buses run by private operators.:)
