In many major parts of China’s most developed coastal regions, pick-up trucks are still banned from entering the city centres. This rule may seem very odd to foreigners, but Chinese regulations make no distinction between a dirty farm truck and a Ford F-150 Raptor, which is already on sale in China.
Some cities like Chongqing and provinces of Liaoning, Henan, Hebei and Yunnan have lifted the ban, while others have relaxed restrictions on how far into the city centre pick-up trucks can drive.
Major cities of Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, and Shenzhen still ban pick-up trucks from entering the city centre but driving in the suburbs is allowed.
