However, in 1988 the project was frozen by order of the government of Japan, fearing increased competition between Japanese car brands.
In 1989, a contract was signed with companies "Honda" and "Toyota" on the design for their future models, which worked until 2009, when the global financial crisis has forced Japanese manufacturers to reduce their costs. In 2010 a new client company "Sivax" became the Chinese automobile concern "Dongfeng", which also gave a portion of their shares of the Japanese company, in order to ensure long-term cooperation.
