Back to 1987! Liuzhou Wuling Automobile was doing fine making minivans and the company wanted to go into passenger cars as well. Problem was, they didn’t have the resources to develop one of their own. Instead, in 1987 they imported a Citroen Visa MK2 and introduced that very same vehicle in China as the ‘Liuzhou Wuling LZW 7100 minicar’. Assembly of the LZW 7100 started in 1991 and continued until 1994.
