HistoryEdit

In 2008 GAC began the construction of facilities to produce vehicles for a new own-brand automotive marque.[3] The first production Trumpchi car, the Trumpchi Sedan, a four-door mid-size saloon car model based on the platform of the Alfa Romeo 166, went into mass production in September 2010.[3] The first 500 Trumpchi Sedans produced were delivered to the organizing committee of the 2010 Asian Games in October 2010.[3]

The Trumpchi Sedan was formally unveiled to the public at Auto Guangzhou in December 2010,[4] and public sales of the vehicles begin in the same month.[5] The Trumpchi GS5, a sport utility vehicle based on the same platform as the Trumpchi Sedan, was launched in March 2012.[6][7]
