Beijing Motor Show 2012 (1): eight emerging Chinese OEMs

Chery/BYD/Geely/Great Wall Motor/Brilliance Auto/JAC/Zotye/Lifan Auto



 Under the theme of "Leading through innovation", the Beijing Motor Show 2012 (2012 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition: Auto China 2012) was held from April 25 to May 2 (press days are April 23 and 24).

 The following reports the exhibition by eight private passenger car manufacturers - Chery Automobile (Chery), BYD Auto (BYD), Geely Holding Group (Geely), Great Wall Motor, Brilliance Auto (Brilliance), JAC (Jianghuai Automobile), Zotye Auto ((Zotye), and Lifan Auto (Lifan). Among models exhibited by the eight manufacturers, we report 30 new models including 21 modeled that debuted (including 8 new-energy vehicles) and 8 new commercially-available models that are scheduled to be launched in 2012.

 In addition, concerning exhibition of new technologies, we report BYD Auto's second-generation PHV system/BYD Remote Driving System/BYD two way charge-discharge system and Great Wall Motor's new-generation PHV platform, which were unveiled at the Show.

 It seems partly to be the result of the Chinese government's vague policy on new-energy vehicles that the number of new-energy vehicles exhibited by the eight emerging OEMs was half that of the Shanghai Motor Show 2011 (Auto China 2011).

 The second report will be on the exhibition of new models by major private OEMs including China FAW/SAIC Motor/Dongfeng Motor and the third report on the exhibition of new models by foreign passenger car manufacturers such as Japanese, US, European, and Korean OEMs.
