Auto-sales-statistics-China-Jiangnan_TT_Alto-minicarSales figures for the Jiangnan Alto TT in China.

The Jiangnan Alto is an second generation (1980’s) Suzuki Alto for which Jiangnan Auto has bought the rights. Jiangnan also exported CKD (Complete Knock Down) kits to PSA in Algeria, who sold it as the Peugeot JN Mini, and to Iran Khodro who sold it as the Iran Khodro Alto. Zotye Auto took over Jiangnan in 2009, and sold it as the Zotye TT, claiming the title of cheapest new car in the world, at less than $ 3,000 at the time. Read more about this story in our article about car models which continued to be produced under a new owner and a new name in China after having been retired from their original market.

Zotye also sells the Z100 minicar, which is a copy of the last model Suzuki Alto, for which it doesn’t own the rights.

Car sales statistics from China only include domestic production and exclude imported models.
