FAW Group to operate more than 100 Hongqi smart cars

The leading Chinese automaker FAW Group said it will put over 100 smart cars of the Hongqi brand in operation, technologically co-driven by humans and automobiles, in the northeastern city of Changchun.

It is part of the efforts to publicize the construction of a driverless demonstration zone in Changchun, the capital of Jilin Province, said the automaker.

So far, FAW has finished the construction of 10.5 km of smart roads, putting four Hongqi smart cars in operation, and has been operating safely for almost 30,000 km.

In recent times, the production and sales of Hongqi cars observed rapid growth. More than 170,600 Hongqi cars were sold between January and July this year, a boost of 95 percent year on year.

Hongqi is largely known as a luxury automobile marque. The brand has been used in parades for national celebrations in China.
