“PolarSun Mode” standing in China and facing to the outside world
Benefited from successful experience from international automobile part market in the past years, PolarSun Automobile made great efforts in overseas market at the beginning. As it entered automobile industry, PolarSun set up automobile R& D centers in Los Angeles and Detroit in America, which employ famous automobile experts from America, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan of China to take charge of product research and development to make PolarSun have more sensitive antenna in product research and development.

Polarsun buses drive in with price advantage in Nigeria Africa market

In the auto market, any dealership that has competitive prices, good quality vehicles and reliable after-sales network, as factors interplaying in his favour, will definitely make lot of impact. Interestingly, all these are what a new motor company, Emel Automobiles Nigeria Limited, is banking on to endear its Chinese brands of vehicles to the Nigerian market.

Emel made a debut at the Eagle Square – venue of the recent 10th Abuja International Motor Show – with Lifan 520 sedan and a mini bus called Polarsun. The duo attracted a stream of visitors into the company’s stand while the fair lasted, with a good number of them excited to hear that the vehicles have competitively prices, despite being basically products of Japanese engineering concept.

He confirmed that many units of Lifan and Polarsun were sold on the fair ground, disclosing that Emel Automobiles has been collaborating with banks, including Intercontinental, ECOBANK and Bank PHB, to provide buyers with finance schemes which enable them own the vehicles without paying the entire price at once, but are rather spread out for them over many months.

Emel, which ventured into auto marketing about one year ago, has a network of after-sales service back-up with workshops at Warri, Port Harcourt, Abuja, Aba, Benin, Abeokuta and Ibadan , as well as adequate stocks of replacement parts.

Bangkok Post, Motoring section

Friday, November 28, 2008


This Chinese maker wants to steal shares from the van segment dominated by sub-B1m models like the Kia Pregio, Nissan Urvan and Toyota Hiace. The Century has a 104hp 2.2-litre petrol engine with prices starting at B599,000.

(my opinions: That is a very good price (price of new Urvan or new Hiace are around 750000 to more than 1000000 baht). But Thailand is a Japanese-car country, and this model is using (old version of) Hiace's body, so I think Polarsun may not success about selling this model in Thailand.)
This company seems to operate in the background of China's auto industry. Despite their export foray into many countries, and their numerous representative offices outside China, we rarely see any production or sales figures, or press coverage in general. Perhaps it's financed by the big Norstar Auto parts co.
polarsun will probably stop manufacturing its own brand and manufacture under the main brand i think since we dotn hear much from it
