The Chinese auto industry might not be the most important in the world yet, but it’s getting there. It’s already the top market for a large number of top-tier brands like Mercedes-Benz, and the industry has progressed to the point where companies including Nissan are setting up brands specifically to cater to the needs of Chinese buyers.

But as far as Chinese brands go, things are very much a work in progress. A walk around this year’s Beijing show floor made it clear that old habits die hard –  many local brands are still planning on copying-and-pasting their way to success. That said, there were plenty of curious concept cars to wow attendees, not to mention one Chinese brand whose latest car might actually be up to snuff to compete with the best from the West.

Click through this gallery to see what Chinese brands had in store for showgoers.
