Ford Lio Ho
Due to the global strategy of the Ford Motor Company between the mid-1980s and mid-1990s, Western Pacific countries including New Zealand and Australia had a vehicle line-up based on Mazda's 323 and 626 series, which were known as the Ford Laser and Ford Telstar.
Since Ford Motor Corporation bought Mazda in the 1970s, Ford Lio Ho also produces Mazda vehicles in Taiwan. For a while, the Suzuki Carry (a General Motors product) was sold as the "Ford Pronto" in Taiwan.
Formosa Automobile manufactured Daewoo vehicles from 2003 until the end of 2006. About 29,500 cars were built in total. The Daewoo Magnus, also known as Chevrolet Epica or Evanda in global markets, was renamed the Formosa 1. The Daewoo Matiz, also known as Chevrolet Matiz or Spark in global markets, was renamed the Formosa 2.
