(Beijing) – In June 2002, a U.S.-bound shipment of 252 compact sedans made by Tianjin Automobile Industrial Group Co. Ltd. was hailed in China as a landmark achievement.

However, a Chinese media investigation later revealed that Tianjin Automobile’s low-cost Xiali cars would not be sold in the United States at all, but through an American distributor to buyers in South America, the Caribbean, and Africa.
