Taiwan, the island that left China after China went communist, is launching its first car on the world market at the Moscow Motor Show.

Luxgen is backed with serious money, as it is part of the giant Yulon company, founded in 1949, which is a classic Asian conglomerate. It also has links to the giant HTC mobile phone company. In fact Android is used as the platform for the infotainment system, and an HTC phone can be operated through the sat-nav touch screen to access emails, send messages etc.

The theme of the car is basically high tech electronics, including a jet-fighter-style head up display, which should go down well in the land of the MiG fighter.
