does SAIC own over 50% of Ssangyong and do they make Sangyong's in China?
Ssangyong labor union doesn't care if SAIC moves the entire design files to China or not, all they care about is keeping their jobs. They are more communist than Chinese themselves.Production of the Ssangyong product in China was objected by Ssangyong worker's league.
SAIC will produce Ssangyong products in China, all of it.Not sure if SAIC can make it posssible to produce in China.
No they are not. All the labor union is demanding is a job security.Ssangyong is trying their best to prevent SAIC from transfering either production or technolog to China.
So where do I buy Toyota-grade reliability from? Honda's handling?But actually, nowadays any car manufacturer is able to buy car technologies from the market.
fightingtorque said:SAIC own about 43% of Ssangyong, but it makes them the largest shareholder and it's the controlling interest.
Ssangyongs have recently started to be sold in china.
Also there is a mercedes benz designed people carrier/ minibus which is built in korea by ssangyong (MB100?) and a company under SAIC called Huizhong are already assembling that in china.
Expect to see ssangyong vehicles or at least their technology being used in china built SAIC cars in near future.
In October of 2004 SAIC outbid China Bluestar for a 48.9% stake in the troubled Ssangyong. SAIC has since increased its stake to 51%. This acquisition brought to a halt Ssangyong's ongoing efforts to enter the Chinese market through companies like Jiangling, Yacheng Auto Group, etc..hazik said:does SAIC own over 50% of Ssangyong and do they make Sangyong's in China?
Hmm that's kinda weird.....Oh well what's next a redesigned Kyron or Actyon badged as a Roewe?Seamaster said:When SAIC and MG Rover were in partnership, an MG-branded Ssangyong Rexton redesigned by Peter Stevens was shown to workers and dealers at Longbridge. There was also talk of a Rover-branded variant of the Rhodius people carrier. It's not inconceivable that both could wear Roewe badges in the future.
hmm I heard from somewhere that Ssangyong does not have a right to sell Istana to oversea. When Ssangyong and Mercedes ended the partnership, Ssanyong got a chairman but not Istana if I remember it correctly.boogiecat said:Hmm that's kinda weird.....Oh well what's next a redesigned Kyron or Actyon badged as a Roewe?
I wish SAIC's partner will someday export the China-made Ssangyong Istana in the Philippines..I really miss this one..
