Honda Motor is suing Chongqing Lifan Industry Group and Wenan Motor for trademark violation, according to Chinese media reports. Honda alleges that Chongqing Lifan trademark ï¿½SORï¿½ is similar to its registered trademark ï¿½SCRï¿½, which appears on engines it produces. During the trial in the Shanghai No 2 Intermediate People's Court, Honda demanded that Chongqing Lifan recall and destroy all infringing motors and asked for US$2 million in compensation. A verdict has yet to be announced. Honda has filed six other patent-related lawsuits in Shanghai courts against eight mainland motor companies.
