Reliant lives on in China
Chery Automobile, Chinese Car News | AshJanuary 18, 20076:49 am
Reliant, the long bankrupt British automobile company with its famous 3 wheeled vehicles and even more famous sports cars, seems to be living on in China in shape of the Chery A18 Van (shown below in DHL colors). Chery seem to have done a hatchet job on the Reliant Kitten (pictured left) and come out with the Chery A18 van thing. Whats more, DHL have gone and bought 1500 of quite possibly the ugliest van on the market for use on the Chinese mainland. At least the Austin van lives on in its classic glory (?) in China, rather than having a new face thrust upon it by eager designers.
Ash came to China at 18 on a whim and never left. Some 10 years later he collected a degree and a family along the way and now focuses his time on watching the Chinese car industry develop. He has witnessed the market change from being minor backyard market in to the world’s biggest and most important market for all car manufacturers.
