Several Chinese automakers have used Italian design houses to develop new vehicles, but Wednesday (June 15) a Chinese carmaker will open its own styling center here.

Anhui Jianghuai Automobile Co. (JAC) Italian Research and Development Center is considered the first overseas r&d operation for a Chinese carmaker.

“We came to Italy because it is the strongest nation for design and the Turin area has an unparallel automotive design infrastructure,” said Lou Tik, director of the JAC r&d center. (http://europe.autonews.com/article.cms?articleId=56093)
