  1. Definitely this GN6 replacement M6 is a Hit product for the low variant PRO at 1.2M pesos. But the top end GS could be competitive at 1.4M. I hope GAC makes the right decision or else this MPV will go nowhere. See the Innova Zenix it's not saleable even if it's Toyota brand.

    1. Honda and Toyota owe a lot of their success in China thanks to GAC.
      Honda GAC exported the Odyssey e:HEV made by them to Japan already
      Toyota let GAC use the hybrid system of theirs to the Hybrid versions of M8 van and GS8 SUV

    2. Owed??? 🤣🤣🤣. Its the other way around boy, even though they have joint ventures(actually a force JV) i reality GAC is just a contract manufacturer, and owed a lot to honda and toyota. You see GAC now shamelessly copies toyota cars and price it high to pretend that GAC cars are at level of toyota quality

    4. GAC M8 and GS8 Hybrid variants are using Toyota Hybrid technology
      Toyota and Honda can go solo if they want to in China as there's a new law that allows foreign car manufacturers to do business in China on their own but Toyota and Honda prefer JVs as they save money from it.
