Yes Trivia Tim, the Princip is the Saibao III 赛豹 I believe. No, the Simbo is the Saima 赛马, a Mitsubishi-Dingo based minicar. Brio is the name of the Lobo (Lubao) 路宝 in Russia.

I guess we have to get used to these alternate names for foreign markets. It's nothing new though as the Japanese have done it for years.

I see that you are located up in Hafei country. You must see a lot of them on the roads.
Up that far north they don't have to go out of their way for cold weather reliability/durability, and corrosion resistance, tests.
