busy Suzuki

In the early 80s' while major global players were making a big media splash about their joint ventures with the Chinese, Suzuki was quietly working with start-up China automakers to produce the Alto. Tongtian, Jiangnan, BYD (formerly Qinchuan), Chang'an, Guizhou Aviation, got a lot of momentum from the experience. Yeah, Americas got the gas-guzzling Sopranos but China's got the gas-saving Altos.

April 1 this year was no April Fool's Day for many drivers in Beijing, where Xiali, Alto and the like with small engines (1.0L and below) were finally allowed to run on the Chang'an Avenue in front of the Tiananmen Square after being restricted for eight years, according to a recent CBU report.

That Tongtian merger with Jiangnan looks like another step in the process of industry consolidation.

As for Jiangnan, I don't think it sold more than 4,000 cars last year. But it does export to some Middle East countries and also has good gov't backing.

Wow - the "Feng Star" is a very odd looking machine. Kind of like a 2002-2006 Toyota Camry crossed with a Renault 12.

As for the others, I see yet another Citroën ZX derivative and an old Suzuki Alto. Not sure what the advantage is of choosing one of those over Fukang Citroën or the new crop of Chinese-grown minis. Or a Maruti/Suzuki Alto new from the factory in India.

no offence to anybody that actually likes them, but they are all hideously disproportioned and badly designed. they need to improve a hell of a lot to become major players

i know what you are saying Willem mate and i am not knocking Chinese taste but if they want to be successful world-wide they need to come up with a more integrated, pleasing design that will be universally accepted. the Japanese and Koreans have finally managed it with the Yaris, Civic, Mazda 6 and Hyundai Coupe to name but a few.

Those are photochopped and doctored pictires of the Camry (duh). But anywho, I kinda think the Feng Star is rather...ugly.
Ling Ling I'll admit that those graphics are a bit strange looking, but the Fengguang does exist. Here's a photo of it coming off line. It looks better in the flesh.

Laofan as the cost of production (materials etc) rises and as Jiangnan numbers fail to rise, it doesn't surprise me to hear that things are not looking good for this small fish in a big sea. After Jiangnan's absorbtion of Tongtian, I thought there might be a tie up with Geely but that never developed.

As it turned out Zotye Holdings, makers of a Daihatsu Terios lookalike bought the Jiangnan facility. They hope to restart production of the Alto in May. It looks like all other models will be canned.

Zotye resumed the Jiangnan car production since the Summer 2007. Only the Alto model is in production. It is unclear if the other models will be ever made again. Zotye is preparing the Lancia Lybra production, and I suppose they will give priority to that project.
Greetings!
