The Wuhan Xiao Long special vehicle company are planning to take their home made Hummer on a high altitude road testing across Xinjiang, Tibet, and Heilongjiang which will give them a chance to test high altitudes, desert conditions, and sub zero conditions.
Xiao Long have been reportedly working on this particular offroad vehicle for ten years using only domestically made parts in its development. WuLong have also researched and designed 30 other military offroad vehicles.
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.

why copy the Hummer H1.????
Its an ugly vehicle. They could have designed something different and better looking
it just feels kind of stupid to copy the H1, makes no sense.
I mean, its so easy to make something that looks better than the H1
here is a good proof that a lot of chinese companies do nothing but just copy products

Im Robbie from Belgium and Ive been hanging around on your site for a couple of weeks. Bit of a carnut, and since the automotive future is in China, Im really interested in Chinese cars. Especially the real Chinese cars, which we dont have in Europe.
Anyway, this is my first post, and I just wanted to say this is a great site. Keep it up. There arent a lot of comments yet, but in a year or so this site will be overloaded with readers and every article will be celebrated with dozens of responses

With a bit of luck, Ill be able to show you a military vehicle which will EAT the Hummer H1!
Hint: It uses a V8 Toyota engine and gearbox, it looks Russian, but its Chinese!

@Ash & Jackson: More importantly, looks aside, will the Chinese milspec SUV be uparmored, mine/IED resistant, and *most* importantly for Chinese thinking, be able to run with minimal to no preventive maintenance???

You would have to guess the government is funding them. It costs more to build your own car even if you do copy it than just go buy a hummer. Someone is spending some money because there is money to spend.

nella filosofia cinese copiare normale, ma le persone che lavorano e poi si vedono rubare il frutto del proprio lavoro non sono felici
