Faw Toyota must be well aware of this if it wants to seize opportunities under the new pattern.It should be pointed out that the competition in China’s auto market has entered a white-hot stage, especially the “new, four modernizations” has accelerated the development of smart cars and new power car enterprises.For traditional car enterprises, transformation and reform is imminent.The prospect of the new Asian Dragon is bound to face many tests, as “Generation Z” users gradually become the dominant market of automobile consumption, to meet the actual needs of emerging groups, “static braking” is bound to be difficult to open up a larger incremental market.After three years of deep cultivation in the B+ market, it is up to the market to verify whether Asia Dragon can further reshape and surpass the brand value, continue to provide the driving force for the brand, and thus help FAW Toyota to achieve the goal.Chief Editor: Yu Jianping
