FAW Group says it sold 3.464 million vehicles in 2019, a year-on-year gain of 1.3%. That wasn't only due to the JVs with the Volkswagen Group, Toyota and Mazda, the company's own divisions having each had very strong years. We all know what happened to the Chinese market during the first quarter but if planned new models count for anything, then FAW's aggressively expansive Hongqi and Bestune divisions may surprise many in 2020.
