The Chinese car market in 2016, novelty, counterfeit, luxury cars
The automotive industry in China is booming, and manufacturers such as VW and General Motors are experiencing more and more competition pressure from the domestic automobile brands.

Chinese consumers are quite accustomed to foreign high quality models of cars. But also car owners from China love cheap goods. Hence the dissonance. How to make beautiful, technologically advanced machine cheap?
Do your own research? No, because the price tag fails to hold. To bring from abroad – even more expensive. To allow foreign car manufacturers to set factories direct in China? Option… But it’s better just to do the outside similar copies for the domestic market. Kill several birds with one stone, cheap, practical, this product will always be a steady demand, and they are easy to manufacture. What comes out of it, you can see in the gallery. The pictures of the most egregious Chinese copies of the most famous models of cars.
