China Flxible Automotive Co. Ltd. is a bus manufacturer located in the city of Changzhou, Jiangsu Province, China. It is a joint venture formed in 1992 by Changzhou Changjiang Bus, General Automotive Corp (GAC)/Flxible, Penske Corporation, [[Mark IV Industries, and Carrier Corporation and the government of China. It produces 3,000 buses annually for the Chinese market and another 500 to 2,000 for export to other Asia-Pacific markets.

China Flxible produced buses based on the Flxible Metro design and with the Flxible name in a variety of lengths, from 8 m (26 ft 3 in) to 11 m (36 ft 1 in). These buses, which include both front- and rear-engine designs, and share only their general exterior appearance with the American-built Flxibles, were sold to many transit operators in major Chinese cities, including Beijing and Shanghai. A trolleybus version was manufactured for just one operator, the Hangzhou trolleybus system, which bought a total of 77 between the late 1990s and 2001. However, for these vehicles, Changzhou Changjiang supplied the chassis and Metro-style bodies to the Hangzhou Changjiang Bus Company (in Hangzhou), and that company equipped them as trolleybuses.[1] [2]
