Suzhou-designed SUV Makes Debut
The first model of Auding SUV, designed by Suzhou Autek Designing Company, was announced to the whole country on Sept. 6 in Zhengzhou, Henan Province. The fact indicates the completion of the auto industrial chain of Suzhou, and its great potential in outsourced service.
Currently there are over 100 designing companies in China, capable of auto parts designing, but only 7 or 8 are doing the whole-car designing, and Autek is one of the most competent. In recent years, great progress has been made in Suzhou's auto industry. The Kinglong coach is a representative in the whole-car manufacturing, while in auto parts production, the products range from tyres to auto glass, and almost cover the entire field. The world-standard ABS is being produced in Bosch base in Suzhou. Suzhou's auto industrial chain is becoming more inclusive with fast-growing localization.
Suzhou is gaining reputation in auto designing with the efforts of local designers represented by Autek, while outsourced designing service grows drastically on the auto market. Even the famous R&D and designing enterprises from Italy and Germany have joined in the competition for outsourced designing.
