BAIC is a long and storied brand in China. It has undergone 58 years of development in the People’s Republic and since then has become one of the largest automotive manufacturers in the area. Meanwhile, BAIC Philippines was established in 2014 under the management of Bayan Automotive Industries Cor...poration (Bayan Auto). Bayan Auto is the exclusive distributor of BAIC vehicles in the country.

BAIC currently has two trim levels per vehicle. The entry-level trim is dubbed Standard while the range-topping trim will vary from vehicle to vehicle. In some cases, the Luxury trim is the range-topper while in others it’s the Ultra-luxury. For its commercial vehicle lineup, the entry-level trim is Comfort and the range-topper is Luxury. Other vehicles will only have one trim level such as the MZ45, while others will be denoted by their body style – specific for commercial vehicles and do not reflect on the passenger vehicle segment.
