Tokyo, Japan, June. 12, 2006 - (JCN Newswire) - Toyota Motor Corporation announced today that Sichuan FAW Toyota Motor Co., Ltd. (SFTM), a joint vehicle-production company established with China FAW Group Corporation (FAW) in China in 2005, has added a second version of the Land Cruiser Prado to its production lineup, raising SFTM's overall annual production capacity from 20,000 units to 23,000 units.
The newly added version of the Land Cruiser Prado - the higher-grade Land Cruiser Prado VX - started rolling off the line today at SFTM's Chengdu Plant, which also makes the Land Cruiser Prado GX(*1). Both versions are for the Chinese market; until now, the Land Cruiser VX sold in China was only made in Japan.
Like the Land Cruiser Prado GX, the Land Cruiser Prado VX is to be sold through FAW Toyota Motor Sales Co., Ltd.'s approximately 220 authorized dealers, which started accepting orders from customers today. The Land Cruiser Prado VX is priced at 558,000 Chinese yuan (approximately 7.87 million yen).
With this latest development, Toyota's total annual vehicle production capacity in China now stands at 343,000 units. Outline of SFTM

Does anyone know if C-NCAP ended up with similar tests to the Euro NCAP or did they end up using lower collision speeds?
Thanks, I suspected it would go that way, they should have made them the same and just accepted that their current cars would have low scores. This way nobody knows what they mean so will assume all chinese cars are bad whatever the score. :nono:
