The China Auto Brand Quiz

Share Our Knowledge With Your Friends, Contacts And Co-Workers

So you think you know your Chinese auto brands? This quiz will test your knowledge on all matters pertaining to the wonderful and slightly weird world of Chinese auto branding.

Some manufacturers change their logos and branding more often than you change your socks which makes it hard to keep up to date with the latest trends. In this quiz, in the interest of making it a little more difficult we have removed the English or Chinese texts from the logo because it might be considered cheating otherwise.

Chinese Auto Brand Quiz

Nobody is quite sure how many auto brands are on the market in China, some say 115, some say as many as 150. The Chinese market is home to several dozen indigenous brands but now international brands have been working with local auto manufacturers to create brands specifically for the Chinese market, these sub brands have been growing popularity giving the domestic Chinese brands even more competition. Chinese brands are growing in popularity in overseas markets, so perhaps some of these brands you have seen before today. Try your luck and tell us your score in the comments.

    Not 100% but not bad for a Portuguese living in Portugal, and therefor without any first hand experience with the Chinese car market.

    34/35 (97%). Are you sure about that BAIC badge? It doesn’t look like the latest one to me. Certainly their current cars having something different on them.

    The MG logo question was tricky. A person can be drawn to the first Chinese owner of MG, the now defunct Nanjing Auto, acquired by SAIC shortly after the MG purchase. But, excuses aside, I goofed in not seeing the “SAIC”. :-)
    Logos have been changed a lot by companies like Chang’an, Great Wall, Hawtai, Geely, Chery, Zotye and others. And in some cases multiple logos are still maintained. With the ongoing increase in sub brands, it’s a challenge to keep them all straight.

    I think Mark is right. The current BAIC logo looks like the swinging doors on a bar room. The one shown here I think is the one used by Beijing Auto Works, the jeep/utility vehicle subsidiary of BAIC.

    89%,, wow, when people here boast about 100% or so, they must be in the business and not just an amateur like myself. Sad thing: All 3 or 4 times I had to make a 50-50 guess, I got it wrong :(
