I corrected BJ2014 to BJ2024 and Samchon 1713 to 1703 in Erik's list above.

On this page is a picture which shows an unknown car Zunma 1811 and there is also a JAC Refine M5 in the background behind a BJ40.

Looks like PMC, like computer hardware/parts shops in Asian bazaars, is importing anything and everything they can lay their hands on and pretty soon they can boast of a lineup with more models than the number Toyota sells worldwide, although it is true some of the vehicles listed above are not even sold in China anymore :)

Which raises the questions: what about after-sales service? What happens when a minor or major repair is needed? Do they stock all spares? Are mechanics flown in from China? Do they have equipment on hand, of vastly different specifications, to service all of these different models? Are the damaged cars transported back to China, to the respective manufacturers' service centers?

I was thinking, being these cars made abroad and badged then as Pyeonghwa, wouldn't they be considered as captive imports?

Sanction Committee DPRK of the Security Council of the United Nations, report from the Panel of Experts supporting the Committee

Military vehicles observed at parade and missile launch

96. The Panel investigated a three-axle military vehicle transporting an anti-air guided missile system which was tested during a military drill, and reported by state media on 2 April 2016. The guided missile system is identical to a strategic surface-to-air missile system (KN-06) displayed during the October 2015 military parade (see figure 26).
97. The surface-to-air missile system and radar transporter vehicles at the parade were labelled “Taebaeksan-96” in Korean script and strongly resemble a series of Russian-manufactured trucks (see annex 10-1). The Panel confirmed that a Russian Federation truck company had been operating an assembly line in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea since 2007 and that medium-sized trucks with the name “Taebaeksan-96” had been produced and licensed by that company at the Pyongsong Auto assembly plant. The Panel concludes that these “Taebaeksan-96” trucks were produced at the plant and were copies of the company’s specific truck model.

98. In its reply, the Russian Federation stated that the truck company had established a joint venture with Korea “Pusen” corporation involving an assembly plant for manufacturing trucks in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea from November 2006 to December 2010, during which time 156 truck kits were delivered to the country. The joint agreement consisted of two components: a licensing agreement, including technical specifications for assembly and production; and a commercial contract on truck kit deliveries. The Russian Federation clarified that, under the contract and end user certificate, “Pusen” corporation was not authorized to utilize the model for military purposes, and resolutions 1718 (2006) and 1874 (2009) did not prohibit shipments of trucks to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea during the period when the joint venture contract was in force.
99. The Panel notes that no company named “Pusen” exists in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, but that a similarly named “Korea Pusong Corporation” manufactures vehicle-related machinery parts like grinders and bearings, and considers “Pusen” to be a derivative pronunciation of “Pusong”.102 Korea Pusong was designated by a Member State in March 2016 for its role in military logistics and the procurement of weapons of mass destruction.103
Another Member State stated that Pusong’s alias, “Elite Surveying Instruments”, had been involved in illicit shipments of dual-use items to an entity in the Syrian Arab Republic, “Megatrade”, a front company of the Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Centre, that had previously been involved in prohibited activities.104 According to the truck’s brochure, Korea Ryongwang Trading Corporation markets this truck and provides repair and technical services (see annex 10-2). The Panel identified Ryongwang as an alias of a designated entity, Korea Ryonbong General Corporation.105
100. Spare parts almost certainly would have had to have been imported for vehicles such as “Taebaeksan-96”. Given that resolution 2270 (2016) extends the arms embargo to any item that could directly contribute to the development of the country’s operational capabilities of its armed forces, the Panel reiterates that Member States should prevent the export to the country of any commercial vehicles or spare parts thereof that could be used for military purposes. Furthermore, paragraphs 8 (a), (b) and (c) of resolution 1718 (2006) apply to the transfer of “truck chassis with 6 or more axles”, listed in annex III of resolution 2321 (2016).

Ruediger Frank from the University of Vienna visited Pyongyang in February. He saw new blue license plates that look like Chinese plates, and says that electric bikes are now a common sight in Pyongyang.
During my last trip to North Korea in February 2017, I noted a number of interesting developments that have taken place since my previous visit in May 2016. They include the disappearance of iron bars from windows and balconies on the first two floors of residential buildings in Pyongyang, a complete change of the design of license plates for cars, the emergence of a sports lottery, the widespread use of electric bicycles in the capital and an expanding number of shopping opportunities for the growing middle class.

Not well-versed in trucks, so can't identify them, but in this video, at 1:26:11, there is a closeup with Korean characters visible.

Part of the Sungri factory is now in use by a Chinese-Korean joint venture named Tokchon Auto Joint Venture Co. Ltd. At the Pyongyang Fair the whole production program/plans were shown, starting from 3 ton trucks, via 5 ton, 8 ton, 10 ton, to 20, 30 ton. This article confirms that the production has started with the 5 ton truck. The trucks bear the name Sungri. From the air it is clear that part of the factory complex is now painted blue, and that factory halls are restored. It seems like a new start.
Would love to see this "Sungrisan Revolutionary Museum"!

The February issue of the North Korean propaganda magazine Korea has a short article with photos about the trolleybus factory. The article claims that the factory has also developed battery electric buses.

PDF from KCNAwatch, which monitors official North Korean news sources. The article is on printed pages 30 and 31, which are together page 17 of the PDF file.

On the previous photos I already had the impression that he was not happy with the hard seats they used in the bus. He is on a guiding tour, so he has to say something, you see them all writing in their small block notes. I am not surprised to see these new seats a couple of days later.
