New Hongqi C131 to be China’s next ‘government car’?
Published on February 3, 2012 by Tycho de Feijter
According to Chinese sourced cited by Businesweek the Chinese government has decided that the upcoming Hongqi (Red Flag) C131 will be China’s next official government car for minister-level officials.
This could easily count for some 100.000 vehicles and would be a big coup for Hongqi. Current official government car is the Audi A6L which is made in China by the FAW-Volkswagen joint venture. FAW is also the owner of the Hongqi-brand and will so win some and lose some, but at least they can keep all the profits on the Hongqi for themselves.
