Tim’s Travel Tips: What Kind of Vehicles are in China?

What kind of vehicles are in China? There are plenty of Chinese brands and they seemed nice to be in like any of the cars we are familiar with.  According to Wikipedia, the traditional “Big Four” domestic car manufacturers are SAIC Motor, Dongfeng, FAW and Chang’an.  Other Chinese car manufacturers are Geely, Beijing Automotive Group, Brilliance Automotive, Guangzhou Automobile Group, Great Wall, BYD, Chery and Jianghuai (JAC).  The micro cars of Korea and Japan were common too.

What about the cars that we are familiar with?  American brands, Buick and Cadillac are prevalent there with some options not available in America.  Ford brands seem to be the more European version like a Mondeo.  Tesla was easy to find.  German brands like Volkswagen, BMW, Mercedes, and Audi were all there.  One of the factory owners drove Mary Ann and I around and he had a Porsche Mecan.  Volkswagen had unique Chinese versions but the others were familiar like a BMW 3 series or Audi A4.  Some of them had long versions that I had not seen before.

Hanging out in Shanghai and Hong Kong for a limited time you can still catch a bit of the wealth with Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, or what have you.  China overall feels modern and wealthy and all the cars generally look new because of it.
