Made by SAIC MAXUS: Unveiling of the command vehicles in the grand parade marking the 90th founding anniversary of the People's Liberation Army
SHANGHAI, China, Aug. 4, 2017 /Xinhua-AsiaNet/--

Ninety years ago, a new independent people force led by the Communist Party of 
China was born. This army grew up in the smoke of gunpowder, experienced a 
series of warfare as well as military reform in the peaceful era. Now at the 
90th founding anniversary of the People's Liberation Army, a grand parade was 
held on July 30, which offered an all-round display of China's military powers 
and caught global attention.

It is exciting to see all kinds of uniform formation in large parades, and the 
sophisticated and high-tech equipment are always hot topics. Even valiant 
heroic women soldiers are the focus of discussion. In addition to these, parade 
command vehicles are also one major highlight in grand parades. 

As early as in 2015 when China held the grand parade on September 3 to mark the 
70th anniversary of victory of the Chinese People's Anti-Japanese War and the 
world anti-fascist war, SAIC MAXUS delivered 24 G10 vehicles to the military, 
which shuttled between the parade command center and training base to transport 
officers, soldiers and equipment throughout the training preparation period.

SAIC MAXUS are officially designated vehicles for the APEC Summit, the Youth 
Olympic Games, the Boao Forum for Asia and other top tournaments and 
activities. Thus it is fair to call SAIC MAXUS's vehicles ambassador cars.
As supporting vehicles for military command, safety is the most important 
principle. Military cars have demanding requirements for a four-wheel drive 
performance. The G10, V80 and T60 SAIC MUXUS vehicles used in the parade were 
reviewed by the world on behalf of Chinese auto brands.

During the parade, command vehicles have to deal with heavy personnel 
transport, transport management and complicated equipment procedures. SAIC 
MAXUS earned military recognition thanks to its high quality and high 

Today, SAIC MAXUS's products have been exported to 42 countries and regions 
around the world, with the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and other 
developed countries and mature markets being the largest sources of overseas 
sales. Among them, SAIC MAXUS saw its sales in Australia and New Zealand 
growing 38.51 percent over the previous year to reach 1,507 units in the first 
half of this year. In June, sales exceeded 300 units and the market share in 
New Zealand has exceeded 18.3 percent. Two high-end SAIC MAXUS products, the 
pickup truck T60 and SUV D90 will debut in Australia and New Zealand on 
September 25.

SAIC MAXUS is the epitome of "made-in-China" products. SAIC MAXUS has been 
continuously improving the vehicles' safety, comfort, handling performance and 
sophistication to become one representative of China's military-grade quality 
vehicles. In the future, Chinese car brands, led by SAIC MAXUS, will continue 
to use the scientific and technological strength to lead the rise of 
"made-in-China" products to showcase the competitiveness of domestic 
independently-owned brands.
