The second decade of 21st century has passed, but these car brands have become historyThe year is 2020 and 21st century has officially entered its third decade. Over past ten years, automotive industry has undergone major changes. New energy vehicles have led to emergence of many new car manufacturers, but many traditional brands have also been today. Brother Man will tell you about car brands that have gone down in history over past 10 years.
Saab Automotive company Saab Co., Ltd. was first created in Sweden. Aircraft Co., Ltd. was founded in Sweden in 1937. In 1944, she entered research and development of automobiles. It was most glorious moment of her existence. 1950s and 1970s. That "I make airplanes" arrogance.
Although Saab has a lot of technology and is called a "land plane", its sales volume is not optimistic after entering 21st century, and its research and development costs have not been controlled. With capital chain broken, Saab filed for bankruptcy at end of 2011. After a few turns, it was finally acquired by NEVS, but Gryphon Head never saw light of day again.
Daewoo Motors used to be second largest car manufacturer in South Korea, behind only Hyundai-Kia Group, with an annual production of over 600,000 vehicles at its peak. It was acquired by GM in 2002, and then began to produce mid-range and budget cars on same platform as Chevrolet and Buick.
Because of this, disappearance of Daewoo brand is also expected. After being acquired by GM, Daewoo seemed to have turned into a foundry, and there is no reason for existence at all. In 2011, the brand finally went down in history. .
In hearts of many Australians, automotive industry was once backbone of a national industry that they were proud of. Among them, Holden brand has a long history in Australia and has brilliantly entered history of Australian manufacturing, but now brand "exists in name only".
Holden is actually a subsidiary of General Motors and all new Holden vehicles sold in Australia are imported OEM vehicles. As last Australian-made Holden rolled off Adelaide plant in October 2017, it also means Holden brand is literally coming to an end and Australian cars are history.
In fact, Pontiac's popularity in China hasn't been low in last few years, including bullet Trans Sport, sister car first-generation Buick GL8 Montana, and many other models. The most memorable of these are Pontiac GTO and Pontiac Firebird, because these two models became dream cars of almost all young Americans of that time. I think anyone who watched movie "Knight Rider" will be impressed.
However, in end, under influence of economic crisis and GM's strategy on one platform, Pontiac gradually lost itself and became an OEM car for Chevrolet, Oldsmobile and other brands. In addition, Pontiac's sales are not very good: financial crisis hit in 2008, General Motors announced a restructuring in 2009, and Pontiac ended its mission in 2010.
The current Zotye is known for his "plagiarism", but before Shuanghuan, Zotye can only be considered as a little brother. Since every model of Shuanghuan brand is mostly suspected of plagiarism, such as Shuanghuan SCEO and Little Noble, any astute person will understand at a glance that they are modeled after old BMW X5 and are smart.
The most classic of these is that in 2003 Honda sued Shuanghuan Noble SRV for copying Honda CR-V. But in end, court found that Honda lost lawsuit in 2016 and paid Shuanghuan Motors 16 million yuan in compensation. In fact, since 2012, Shuanghuan Motor has been gradually disappearing from people's view, and there is no new news yet.V
