    I have the idea that the Hirochi luxury marque was founded in 1991, with an initial range of three cars - an Infiniti G20+Acura Integra+Mazda Xedos 6 compact executive sedan, an Infiniti Q45+Amati 1000 fullsize luxury sedan (with a V12 option) and an Infiniti M30+Eunos Cosmo flat-6 luxury coupe.

    In 1993, those cars would be joined by an Infiniti G30+Acura Vigor+Mazda Millenia executive sedan, as well as a Hirochi rebadge SUV in 1995.

    The coupe would be dropped in the mid-90s after one generation, and the fullsize sedan would last two, until the early-to-mid 00s.

    I like it! From this point forward, I'll edit that "Horizon" to just be a Hirochi coupe from the 90s.

    Another idea I've been thinking of is ETK's sub-800-series range.

    - 500-Series - A small MPV inspired by the Mercedes A-Class and Audi A2. Made from 1998 to 2009, with a facelift in 2003.

    - 600-Series - An FWD compact hatchback, basically an FWD version of the BMW 1-Series. Made around the same years as real-life 1-Series generations.

    - 700-Series - An FWD compact minivan, inspired by the Mercedes B-Class and BMW 2-Series GT. Built in 2 generations (2006-2013, 2013-2020), with the third coming up.

    The brand would also have a 900-Series midsize minivan, inspired by the rejected cars by Mercedes and BMW (2011-2020),and a large minivan (L-Series) in the style of the Mercedes R-Class, made between 2007 and 2017.

    No, we didn't get tire tread separation issues with Gavril off-roaders either... :p

    Ah shit that's unfortunate.
    EDIT: @MrAnnoyingDude do you want me to make a post in the vehicles suggestion thread for the ETK 500? I've got time before my shift.

    Well, the Roamer is more of an Expedition than Explorer, and there is also Bruckell...
    --- Post updated ---
    Not necessarily. You could, but I would like to have some control over the configs and whatnot.
    --- Post updated ---
    Maybe make a draft here first.
    --- Post updated ---
    My idea for the stock configs for the 500:

    Pre-lift:

    - 554td ecosuper - 1.3 ~60 HP turbodiesel, optimised to consume less that 4 l/100 km of gasoline.
    - 554tdc - 1.5 ~75 HP turbodiesel.
    - 554tde - 1.5 ~90 HP turbodiesel.
    - 554td - 1.9 ~105 HP turbodiesel.
    - 554tds - 1.9 ~125 HP turbodiesel.

    - 554e - 1.6 ~75 HP gasoline,
    - 554 - 1.6 ~95 HP gasoline.
    - 554s - 1.8 ~110 HP gasoline.
    - 554sport - 2.0 ~130 HP gasoline.

    The post-facelift models drop the ecosuper, and replace the 1.9 diesel with a 2.0.

    I've just had an idea about Bruckell/CVC trucks.

    Bruckell/Gavril differences:

    - One Chevrolet-inspired pickup line with Dodge-style front ends, instead of Gavril's newer two lines (smaller D15 and bigger D-Series Heavy Duty).

    - The use of twin I-beam suspension in older Bruckell/CVC trucks,

    - Having the base engine of older ones be a V6, instead of Gavril's I6.

    - Having a Cummins-style I6 diesel engine.

    My take on 'CVC'

    CVC is Bruckell truck brand founed in 1920,it produces Trucks,SUV'S,Crossovers,Some Semis in the past
    it no longer brother with medium duty market

    Focus
    Today it mid-range brand with brouptm now merged to soilad,it sells velchies using soilad dealers,starting in 1950 it shared trucks with Bruckell.

    Brompton wouldn't get merged, it would just stop existing. And why would CVCs be sold through Soliad dealers?




    On another topic: the poll results changed, and now the prevailing idea is a Swedish three-brand car corporation, with the prestige ladder going from the Saab/Mazda/VW/Peugeot brand, to Jargl, to a pure luxury brand.

    I also have an idea that they would own an Eastern Bloc brand for their cheapest cars, but I'll have to think it through.

    for the Australian cars, what if beaufort cars have engines resembling the ford falcon's, using a gradually evolved straight 6 (in keeping with newer vanilla gavrils using ford inspired engines) and the aussie bruckells basically just use bruckell V6 engines?

    I think the MV4 is something like a Falcon or Commodore, and it uses a V6. I think both Beaufort and Bruckell would be using V6 engines.

    Commodore truck names? See below.
    B-Series (B1000, B2000, B1500, B2500, B3500, etc.): Dodge Ram-Esque pickup.
    Utiline: Ford F-650-style massive mall crawler/box truck.

    I recently realised that "Luxe" is basically the Beamverse equivalent of Brougham - a name affixed to higher trim levels of older US cars.
    --- Post updated ---
    I had the idea that the fictional Range Rovers of Beam would be mixes of real-life RRs and Mercedes-Benzes, with some Toyota inspiration.

    Examples:

    - faux-old Defender - old Defender+original G-Wagen+2nd gen Fiat Campagnola+Land Cruiser 70.

    - faux-new Defender - new Defender+new G-Wagen+FJ Cruiser,

    - faux-2nd gen Range Rover - Range Rover+1st gen ML+Land Cruiser 80/100,

    - faux-3rd gen Range Rover - Range Rover+1st gen GL+Land Cruiser 100/200.

    - faux-4th gen Range Rover - Range Rover+2nd gen GL+Land Cruiser 200.

    -faux-5th gen Range Rover - Range Rover+3rd gen GL+next Land Cruiser

    - faux-1st gen RR Sport - RR Sport+2nd gen ML+Land Cruiser 120/150

    - faux-2nd gen RR Sport - RR Sport+3rd gen ML+Land Cruiser 150,

    - faux-RR Velar - RR Velar+GLC+some Jeep Cherokee

    - faux-1st gen RR Evoque - RR Evoque+1st gen GLA+some 1st gen Jeep Compass.

    - faux-2nd gen Evoque - RR Evoque+2nd gen GLA+some 2nd gen Compass.


    As for the newer Land Rovers, they would blend Land Rovers, Volvos and a bit of Toyotas or Jeeps.

    - faux-Discovery 3/4 - Discovery+1st gen XC90+1st/2nd gen Highlander,

    - faux-Discovery 5 - Discovery+2nd gen XC90+4Runner.

    - faux-2nd gen Freelander - Freelander+1st gen XC60+3rd gen RAV4.

    - faux-Discovery Sport - Discovery Sport+2nd gen XC60+4th gen Cherokee+5th gen RAV4.

    As for the upcoming Road Rover wagon, it could be a mix of the Road Rover, V90 Cross Country and upcoming Jeep Wagoneer (which could also influence a fictional bigger-than-Discovery car).

    "Luxe" designation (and variations, like "De Luxe", "L", "LX"...) was also applied by most european manufacturers to the top trim level of their economy cars, usually offering a couple more creature comforts and fancier hubcaps over the cheaper, base models in the range.

    Opel Kadett B in "L" trim, also known as "Luxe" on some export markets:



    I'm pretty sure that's the case with the Miramar, too, the "Luxe" variant being nowhere near Brougham's level of content.

    Although the Luxe LeGran and Grand Marshall seem like they could be Broughams, and the Miramar can be explained the way I did.

    That's for America. Maybe Luxe could also be in Beamverse Europe what it was in real life.
