More Chinese Euro Safety End-Runs

Following the Landwind fiasco, another Chinese automaker is taking heat for making an end run around EU safety regs. Great Wall Automobile plans to launch the Hover SUV and Deer 4x4, both phenomenally-named vehicles that Great Wall is hoping will hover and bound their way to 12,000 sales a year, primarily in Spain and Italy at first. However, the vehicles are being imported on a license for commercial vehicles, thus conveniently exempting them from crash tests. We think it can go without saying that the Benelux Badasses of Brussels aren't havin' any o' this nonsense.
