The homepage has it all but for easy access the news is divided by categories:

China Car Culture: how people get along with their cars in China, the good ways and the bad.

China Car History: China started making cars in the early ’50’s and a lot happened between then and today. This history however is still largely unknown, we hope to change that at least a bit.

China Concept Cars: from brilliant ideas to complete madness, all the concept cars from auto shows in China, so you can see where it is going…

Green News: there is no way around is, green is the future, but the future ain’t there yet. China is looking for a green solution but sales of hybrids and EV’s are disappointing. All news on new green cars and green policies.

Industry News: the numbers on sales, news on joint ventures, investments, take overs, strikes, and most important in China: politics.

New Cars from China: the latest cars to hit the market; pics and specs.

Spotted in China: all kind of vehicles seen on China’s streets. From strange three-wheel electric cars to hyperfast supercars.

Spy Shots: the very first pictures of new Chinese cars.

Brands: the biggest category of all with sub-categories for every brand in China. It ain’t so far yet but this baby is growing every day. The ‘brands’ will of course overlap with the subject-orientated categories mentioned above.

The car in the header is a tin model of a Hongqi CA770.

That’s it for now, enjoy.

    Hi – I like your website! Your research is excellent. I visited the Shanghai Tesla Service Centre at Lianhua Road Minhang District recently. It was open for business and I saw dozens of new unregistered Teslas stored ouside in the car park, waiting for buyers. I can email some pictures to you if you want. Best wishes from Anthony in Sydney Australia.
