Among FAW's product offerings is the Besturn B70.

FAW, a maker of trucks, buses, special vehicles, and passenger cars in China, is partnering with U.S.-based Freescale to shorten the automaker's vehicle-development cycle. The alliance will take the form of a joint lab at an existing FAW tech center. Freescale will provide cutting-edge technologies and system-level solutions, as well as semiconductor devices (such as the Qorivva MPC56xx family of 32-bit MCUs and the company’s SafeAssure solutions for functional safety), development tools, reference platforms, and dedicated support resources. The lab’s focus will be on powertrain control, chassis control, active safety, new energy technologies, and other automotive electronics. “Automobile electronics is one of the five key focal points of FAW, and the core technology that we want to master," said Li Jun, Deputy Chief Engineer and Director of the Technology Center of FAW. "Partnering with Freescale will allow us to overcome technology difficulties we have encountered in the automobile electronics area as we strive to continue developing competitive vehicles, improve our integrated innovative capabilities, and therefore realize our branding strategy, which is ‘Quality, Technology, Innovation.’”
