    Tianma should be dropped from this list. It no longer is a significant player in China’s auto industry.
    Behold! FAW, SAIC, GAC, and BAIC (parent of Foton) are noticeably missing.
    Why not update the list……

    i have several ideas for hydrogen powered automobiles.

    one of which is a 4 cylinder combustion generator. this is a 4 cylinder, hydrogen powered combustion motor with an electric generator placed in the center of the pistons. This will power 18 wheelers and vehicles. If you use a 10-16 cylinder motor this can power ships. By sucking the ocean water up, purifying it, turning it into hydrogen your ships can be self-sufficient, they will not need diesel fuel.

    if you use a two-cylinder high reving motor cycle motor attached to a generator shaft that is placed in the middle of the vehicle you can charge the batteries of the electric vehicle quickly and efficiently. This 2 cylinder motor can be powered by hydrogen. then place the electric motors in the wheels of the vehicle.

    you can also use a removable laptop for the operating system of the vehicle. When removed the vehicle can not be stolen.

    you can also place a generator on top of the rear axle of a vehicle to produce power. this can be used to power refer units on 18 wheelers.
