Huangge Auto Town Station (Chinese: 黄阁汽车城站) is an elevated station of Line 4 of the Guangzhou Metro.[1] It started operations on 30 December 2006. It is located at the junction of Shinan Road (Chinese: 市南路; pinyin: Shinan Lu) and Huangge Road North (Chinese: 黄阁北路; pinyin: Huangge Beilu) in Huangge Town (Chinese: 黄阁镇), Nansha District. Its location is just next to Guangzhou Toyota Auto Town (Chinese: 广州丰田汽车城), a car firm operated by the Japanese car manufacturer, Toyota.[2][3][4][5]

Before the station put into service, it was called "Huangge North Station" (Chinese: 黄阁北站) and "Guangzhou Toyota Auto Town Station" (Chinese: 广州丰田汽车城站) successively.[6] Residents criticized the station name of "Guangzhou Toyota Auto Town Station" for promoting Toyota and its car accessories. So the station name was changed to the current Huangge Auto Town Station later.[7]
