The new Nissan NP300 Navara/Frontier pickup, globally introduced in 2014, will be sold from late next year by Zhengzhou-Nissan. Looking at the VIN plate, it looks like trial production of prototypes has already commenced in China.

Zhengzhou Nissan Terra (P60A)

Next-generation Paladin, based on new Navara pickup, reportedly spied at Zhengzhou Nissan factory. (A couple of months ago, a low-res image purported to be a leak or render was circulating on the net)

The P60A has dimensions of 4885 x 1865 x 1835 mm, wheelbase 2850 mm, engine 2.5 L (QR25) as used in the Navara.

Nissan Terra (ASEAN)

The Nissan Terra for ASEAN markets was launched in Philippines. The made-in-Thailand PPV (pick-up passenger vehicle) differs from the Chinese version in that it has seven seats (instead of five) and is powered by a 2.5 turbodiesel (in place of the 2.5L petrol unit). It is also 15 mm wider, probably due to slightly broader running boards. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in a couple of months.

Thank you.
And I was wrong in referring to "DFL", since neither ZNA, nor its parent DFAC, is a part of that Nissan-Dongfeng Motor Group partnership established in 2002.
People are confused because there are four companies that have similar names in Chinese but different roles, and the translations of their names are often misleading (and similar too).

Let me attempt to set the record straight. I am not including a diagram now but may add one later.

SASAC owns 100% of Dongfeng Motor Group Corporation Ltd.. This was till recently called "Dongfeng Motor Corporation" and is the overarching parent company. Let's call this DFMC.

One step below, Dongfeng Motor Group Corporation Ltd. [DFMC] owns a special-purpose investment vehicle or intermediate holding company called Dongfeng Motor Group Company, Ltd. Dongfeng Motor Group Corporation Ltd. owns 66.86% of this company (100% of all unlisted shares) and 33.14% is widely-owned stock ("H" shares) on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. We'll call this DFMG.

Next, Dongfeng Motor Group Company, Ltd. [DFMG] and Nissan (China) Investment Co., Ltd. own 50:50 of the joint venture called Dongfeng Motor Company, Ltd. This is the company commonly known as DFL or Dongfeng-Nissan.

Next down, Dongfeng Motor Company, Ltd. [DFL] owns 60.1% of Dongfeng Automobile Company, Ltd. This is the company making many of the light commercial vehicles we know of. This is listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange. We call this DFAC.

Zhengzhou Nissan Automobile Co., Ltd. [ZNA] is 100% owned by Dongfeng Motor Company, Ltd. [DFL] since mid-2017. Immediately prior to this, it was owned by DFAC (51%), DFL (28.65%) and Nissan (China) Investment Co., Ltd. (20.35%).

So, ZNA and DFAC are both owned by DFL or Dongfeng-Nissan.

__________________________________________

The Chinese names of the companies are:

1. Dongfeng Motor Group Corporation Ltd (DFMC): 东风汽车集团有限公司 (dōngfēng qìchē jítuán yǒuxiàn gōngsī). Till November 2017, it was known simply as Dongfeng Motor Corporation [东风汽车公司 dōngfēng qìchē gōngsī]

2. Dongfeng Motor Group Company, Ltd. (DFMG): 东风汽车集团股份有限公司 (dōngfēng qìchē jítuán gǔfèn yǒuxiàn gōngsī). The "gufen" indicates it is a joint stock company.

3. Dongfeng Motor Company, Ltd. (DFL): 东风汽车有限公司 (dōngfēng qìchē yǒuxiàn gōngsī). This is a Sino-Foreign JV. The "Group" or "jituan" part is missing from its name.

4. Dongfeng Automobile Company, Ltd. (DFAC): 东风汽车股份有限公司 (dōngfēng qìchē gǔfèn yǒuxiàn gōngsī). Here too, the "gufen" indicates it is a joint stock company.

DO NOT translate the Chinese names with Google Translate. It will turn up the wrong names in English and confuse you even further.

Hope this helps :D
