welcome innovation

Looks like the Chinese imports are arriving in Europe so quickly that the spies are getting confused already.
The Fengshang MPV is the first all Chinese vehicle in its class. The Yufeng is the hybrid version due out in 2008.

The manufacturer Jiangling Holding Co. (JHC), is owned by Chang'an and Jiangxi Jiangling Motors, each with 50%. Chang'an itself is owned by the South Industries Group and JHC owns 41% of Jiangling Motors. This complexity of ownership of Chinese carmakers gets more confusing every day, but when consolidation really gets underway the reverse will be true.

Chang'an has fallen on hard times with an 80% drop in profits last year; it's too bad because there's some nicely innovative models being produced. It even has an office at the I.De.A headquarters in Turin.

This car was originally intended to be Chang'an but they used Landwind name instead (quite surprisingly)

jiangling cv9

The CV 9 was shown as prototype at the Shanghai Show in April 2005 under the Jiangling brand. Surprisingly, later prototypes seen during testdrives showed the Chang'an logo, and they were indicated as CV11.
The European spy pictures were taken in October 2005, by Brenda Peddy, when the CV9 was loaded on a trailer, on the road in Germany to visit a Ford Tranmission Factory. I notified Brenda Peddy & Company immediately that they were wrong, indicating that the car was a Chery product. This was never rectificated, I suppose it is difficult to admit a mistake, especially when the mistake is already internationally published.

staying ahead of the game

If Brenda and Co had subscribed to CMVDC they would have been more on top of things. Afterall the intro was at least 6 months earlier....

the front looks a little too cute in my point of view, they should put this front to a mini car it would look so much better.

new landwind mpv

I think this has just been launched - it's in some of the mags. I saw this one on display at jmc a while back. Engine is a 2.0 from Changan who have a share in Jiangling group (and vice versa I believe). I'm not certain but I think it's another FEV developed engine.

Note the beam axle rear suspension, and the Kumho tyres.

Looks like a well presented vehicle with what looks like decent fit and finish. How did it seem from your point of view in terms of quality first hand? Also what is its pricing in China?

How is Landwind recovering from its initial disaster into the European market?

Yes, we all know that the horrible crash test it recieved was a setup. But it did severely impact their initial sales.

very very nice...and it gets bonus points for the color...ive never seen this color on a car
:)
It looks very like the fantastic "Sunspot" color used by MG but that was an optional color costing over £2000 extra so I don't think many will be made in this color if it is the same!
