A new minivan has been launched on the Chinese car market. This is the Jonway Wuxing, its main competitor is Wuling, the famous minivan joint venture between SAIC, GM and Wuling Automotive. The Wuxing minivan is made by Jonway Auto, known for cheap ‘n crappy pickup trucks and for the nicely named Jonway A380.
Name again, is special here. Sure Jonway choose Wuxing on purpose, it almost sounds the same in Chinese as Wuling and it almost means the same. Wuxing (五星) means ‘Five Stars’, Wuling (五菱) means ‘Five (sharp) Squares’. Competition in the minivan segment is sure heating up!
