    What is it?

    Spotted this at the San Diego Zoo.
    Anyone have an idea what it is? I can't seem to find that emblem in any searches I do.

    If it was made in the last 6-8 years, chances are better it's from China. All of the newer ones seem to be coming from there now.

    Thought it was a Kia Bongo. Then again, the badge could've been put on by the importer of said truck for sale here under the now closed loophole of importing said trucks as Farm Equipment.

    Easier to list what it's not :

    Daihatsu
    Daewoo
    Tata
    Ssangyong
    Baolong
    Chery
    Great Wall Motor
    Haima
    Jiangnan
    Shuanghuan
    Zhongxing

    One problem in telling what it is, is that even major brands in Japan now have sub-line/dealer badges. Like Toyota has it's Netz dealers, and the front emblem is the Netz one. A couple good Toyota examples are the new Axio Corolla:

    And our RAV4, I ordered the Netz badge and put it on:


    I'm trying to recall which vehicle that is, because I remember seeing the badge in Japan.

    Badge is very similar to Hyundai. but it looks like the toyota vans we have here (mind you they all look the same these days)
    A 320 ute, 2 roadsters, 2 1200's ...... & a Prince.

    IIRC. Ssayong doesn't even make/didn't make Kei trucks.

    Would like the Chairman W, but damn those 25 Year Old Importation Laws.....

    I'm thinking it's a safe bet to say it's a hyundai or a kia. Definatly has the korean "ring" to it.

    Other thoughts would be a Mitsubishi or Hindustan Motor Co.
