For close to a year, I have come across reports and pictures of a new micro-van developed by NLM Motor, referred to as "Qiteng M70" or "M1" which looks a lot like, but is not identical to, the Junfeng CV03. In August, there was a report of shipment of a few units of this vehicle. After that, no news. Is anybody on the forum aware of this vehicle and whether it has actually gone into production or is on sale? Its official NDRC designation is FJ6410/FJ6410S.

Thanks ahead for any info.

Hello Erik, while we eagerly await your report, allow me to link a few pictures and media reports to keep CCF visitors happy!

Also, two early reports from Autofan and Auto.MSN.

Knowing now that NRDC has used the designation FJ6410 for the New Longma minis will be a first step into recognition. Otherwise it is -theoretically- possible that Dongfeng can take over the factory. In fact the New Longma is not far away from the Junfeng!

I am entering the realm of speculation here - I believe DFM or any other hypothetical acquirer would still require an approval for this particular company to produce vehicles - approvals are given on an enterprise-basis. I find that the FJ6410 was notified in Notice #245 in February.

[Speaking of the Fujian group, even King Long has been similarly sitting on (or has scrapped) a proposed MPV project, "Jinrui" (XMQ6511GEG4C) for a couple of years, a vehicle almost identical to the old FAW Free Wind/Baolong MPVs. Of note, this was preceded by the defunct, identical Ruixi XML6510E by Golden Dragon/Jinlu in 2007.]

Re: Fujian New Longma Automobile Company

Could'nt participate in the forum in the past two days; today I return - and what a lovely surprise! A 13-month wait comes to an end. And I see they have retained the "Qiteng" part of the name. Thank you Martin for the gallery links.
