The target market is the sex-crazed degenerate Cadres of the Chinese Communist Party, buying a car for mistress #4, or one to take to the latest Chinese Communist Party orgy, so this may not be as crass and stupid as it seems.

This is a tradition that goes in cycles in the auto industry. Either way, sex does sell cars however you package it and motor manufacturers would be being very naive if they ignored that fact. There was a time when Volkswagen made themselves famous for being the only car company who decided not to drape their cars with half naked women. Then the other manufactures had to copy them.

But I see that your logic is up to its usual speed - Chinese man decides to impress his girl friend by responding to blatant advertising by a different naked woman. Yes, I can just see that working with his girlfriend.... not!

I see your logic is as feeble and "CCP-serving" as always. I don't see any other auto makers using nude models, nor have they done so in the past; you just made that up. Further, why would the CCP thief CARE what mistress #4 thinks? There are plenty more to replace her if necessary.

Collect your CCP nickel for spinning their degeneracy, Comrade!

Then you are not very well informed because it was common place to use topless women at car shows and even today the use of sex to sell cars is common place as a search engine would have informed you. A quote by way of example: "It seems a car still cannot be launched properly to the motoring public unless a near-naked woman has sprawled over its bonnet. And Paris 2012 was no exception."

But I do enjoy your conspiracy theories about the CCP - how they allegedly issue an edict to Chinese car makers to use topless models at Chinese motor shows so that they have an excuse to go to a car show and buy a new car for their girlfriend.

However, if that red mist in front of your eyes had allowed you to look a little further then you might have discovered this quote in September of this year: "The Chinese government has issued a crackdown on scantily-clad show girls after a series of near-nude incidents at the Chengdu motor show earlier this month.” According to Car News China, the organisers of the Chengdu show have been issued with a reprimand from the government over the amount of flesh shown by models posing for Kia, Citroen and Toyota – the latter of which saw an “almost-naked Ms Yan Yu” posing with a Camry before “things got so mad with ‘journalists’ taking pictures” the model was removed from sight. " But to prove my point about your ignorance about topless women having been a tradition at motor shows I quote the UK's Trade and Industry Secretary " Using a woman in her bra to advertise a motor show is pathetic, sexist, old-fashioned rubbish says Trade and Industry Secretary Patricia Hewitt." and "Nearly half of new cars are sold to women and the industry desperately needs women engineers and these images are like something from the 1950s, Ms Hewitt said. "

Most of the models at motor shows were scantily dressed in the 50's to 60's. The poses that were topless were reserved for 'press day' rather than for the general public which should tell you that using a topless model was a way to get free advertising because a pretty girl does attract the media and the public's attention especially if she is scantily dressed. It was Alan Dix, Managing Director of Volkswagen (GB) who reversed this trend to start a new fashion when he announced in the late 60’s that Volkswagen didn’t need sex to sell their cars. Ironically he was using sex to sell cars because he was widely quoted in the media getting the hoped for advertising. The following year there was hardly a topless model to be seen at a motor show.

But what would a fanatic like you know about pretty girls, sexy dresses and the car industry! Now if yiu had been ranting on about old hags and donkeys then I'd have bowed to the benefit of your experience.

That's 'Germany' not "Germeny".

I talk from experience of the Motor Trade and what a few exhibitors have done in China is a long established and successful ploy to get the press to get pictures of their cars circulated without the additional expense of buying column space.

German car distributors are not immune to the marketing technique of draping half naked women over their cars and, in fact, the year prior to Volkswagen UK setting a reverse trend, Volkswagen UK had themselves been draping women over their cars at the London Motor Show. Meanwhile from the Beijing Motor Show that Miroluba is getting all excited about we have:

"BMW model Li Yingzhi, 22, wearing a deep neck top and a skimpy diamond-studded dress, has become the subject of several blogs and newspaper articles after the dress she wore sparked furious debate.

Referring to pictures of Gan Lulu, an explicitly dressed model known for showing off her homemade nude photos, a microblogger joked on Sina Weibo site: "The brand is trying to convey the features of its car - convertible with double airbags." "

In case you are not aware of it, the BMW is a German car although I believe the "double air bags" were supplied by China.
