      Car cos part with local vendors

      Just stumbled across this article. This might be good or bad in many sense. If the parts are procured from china then it might be a problem when safety is concerned IMO as we all know how china products are. I know this sentence is speculative but this are "my thoughts". Even the cost of the vehicles might increase due to import duties etc.

      Hhhmmm, isn't almost everything built in China these days? I am sure bigger companies will have better QC. Don't think we must generalize the quality of Chinese dual sim phones to everything they make.

      That has become the talk to town now. Due to the dual sim phones, chinese milk and some chinese toys , every other product are getting bashed these days

      I did pick up quite a lot of stuff from China when mom went there 2yrs back.

      She bought 5 phones, all of them except my I-phone replica work even after 2yrs without a hitch. My Chiphone worked beautifully till a few months back. Given the abuse it took from the numerous times I have dropped it, I must admit it was really well built. What most people fail to realize is that these phones cost 20% of what a similar featured phone would cost from a Nokia/SE. And they last accordingly too. One cannot expect a 5k I-phone replica to outlast an I-phone that costs 30k+.

      I think we just have far too many expectations for the little money we are willing to pay. Almost everything in the electronics industry is now made in China. Most of the car parts too are sourced from China for all big manufacs. You don't see everything falling apart to bits right? It all depends on the QC measures the parent company has in store.

      Those guys do know how to mass produce goods at rates even we Indians cant imagine. Now even the interior designing stuff is all coming from China.

      China had overtaken Germany and is now the largest exporter.This says a lot about China. Not all of their products are of bad quality.

      Some ages ago people used to say Koreans are bad at making car--See now where they are
      Some ages ago people used to say Japanese are bad at making car--See now where they are

      Now people are saying Indians are bad at making car--Have to see where they will end up.
      Now people are saying Chinese are bad at making car--Have to see where they will end up.

      Bharat IV Phases Out 12 Car Models

      The new Bharat Stage IV emission have led to 12 car models being phased out in the 13 cities where the new emission norms went into effect last week. Manufacturers decided to call it a day on these vehicles as upgrading to comply with the stricter norms would require significant investment which didnít seem feasible due to poor sales performance of these vehicles. Some of the cars deserved to have been discontinued long time back but better late then never.

      The cars that have been phased out are : -

      Maruti 800
      Skoda Octavia
      Skoda Fabia (petrol)
      Tata Sumo Victa
      Chevrolet Tavera
      Ford Ikon
      Fiat Palio Stile
      Mitsubishi Lancer
      Mitsubishi Pajero
      Hindustan Ambassador (finally!!)
      Tata Indica V2
      Hyundai Getz (to be phased out through out India)
