One million car milestone for GAC Motor

Chinese automaker builds millionth car…

Some people might not want to believe it, however there is very little doubt that China is following in the footsteps of the Koreans and Japanese towards a substantial place in the auto industry.

The only difference seems to be is that they are getting into the game even faster than their Asian counterparts.

GAC Motor may not be a household name in Australia…yet, however the brand has just marked a pretty impressive production milestone – one million cars.

While that’s a good and healthy number, GAC has managed to smash the seven-figure milestone just six years after the business was started!

Yu Jun, president of GAC Motor, says reaching the milestone so quickly has been a great achievement.

“This is an important milestone for GAC Motor, as we rolled off the 600,000th vehicle last June and less than one year later, we’ve accomplished the goal of producing the 1 millionth.

“Our boosting production capacity has proved the rapid development and advantages of the world-class vehicle manufacturing system by solid actions as we march into the ‘era of million’.”

The milestone vehicle was a GAC Motors GS8 4WD.
