First Auto Works (FAW) has launched a new passenger car brand in China. The new brand is called ‘Junpai’ (骏派) in Chinese and ‘Jumper’ in English. The brand will use the standard FAW logo, see top-right. The first Junpai car is the upcoming FAW Junpai D60, formerly known as the FAW Xiali T102.
Next up are a small SUV, a compact SUV, and a compact sedan. The latter is likely the vehicle currently known as the ‘Besturn B30‘. FAW recently said there will be no Besturn-branded car below the current Besturn B50, indicating the B30 project will be transferred to the new Junpai brand.
It may take more than a new brand name for FAW Xiali to jump out of its present slump.
Is this, first of the Junpais, the T012 crossover seen at the Beijing show in April?
