History

The Sammitr company from Thailand established a joint-venture with Changchun Clivia Industrial Group in Changchun, Jilin, China in 1992 (November 25th). Already producing the Nissan D21 Hardbody pickup in Thailand and having the tooling, the new entity called Sanyou (三友汽车) in Chinese (Changchun Sammitr Motor Co. Ltd or Changchun Sanyou Special Vehicle Manufacturing Co., Ltd. 长春三友专用汽车制造有限公司) likely started making mock-up D21 bodied pickups in 1992.

Seemingly announcing "new D22" Nissan-derived pickup trucks in 2003, no evidence suggest it has entered steady production. Only a few pictures can be found.
