Guangzhou Auto is the only Chinese automaker on the 2015 Detroit Auto Show. They brought new the Trumpchi GS4 SUV and the new Trumpchi GA6 Limited. Third car on show was the two-year old WitStar Concept. The WitStar became very famous when it debuted on the 2013 Guangzhou Auto Show because it had a fish tank on the rear bench, with real goldfish swimming happily around real water plants.
But in Detroit all this pretty has been replaced with fake; plastic fish and plastic plants, the latter with lights. The horror! Why..?

This is the fish pod in the Guangzhou Auto WitStar Concept that debuted earlier today on the 2013 Guangzhou Auto Show. The WitStar showcases technology for autonomous driving. The fish are used to prove that the WitStar is capable of avoiding obstacles. A autonomous crash would break the pod and kill the fish. The fish pod is an integral part of the WitStar’s design, the pod sits in a specially constructed bay in the rear bench, which thus only can seat two.
