Chinese company Chang'an, the fourth-largest automaker in the world's most populous nation, has entered into a joint effort with an mysteriously-unnamed Malaysian consortium to build and sell cars in the country. The state's protectionist trade policies forbid foreign companies to sell Malaysian-built cars in Malaysia, but the joint venture offers a loophole. Chang'an plans to build its CM8 there and license the name to the consortium. You Chang'ans, you're a tricky bunch!
