In 1992, Samsung started to seek approval to create a commercial vehicles' assembly plant through Samsung Heavy Industries, with Nissan Diesel's technological assistance.[6] By 1994 the local government reluctantly granted all permissions and in 1996 was initiated the construction of a plant in Daegu.[3][4][5]

The Asian financial crisis hit when the company marketed its first products. Samsung sold its carmaker (Samsung Motors) to the French Renault,[7] but, after negotiations with Renault's Renault VI subsidiary,[8] it decided to keep Samsung Commercial Vehicles.[7] At the end of 2000, however, the company finally declared bankruptcy.[2][5] All its assets were sold and its personnel was transferred to other subsidiaries of the Samsung Group.[2][9] Samsung Commercial Vehicles' failure generated suspicion and accusations of fraud[10] and destruction of evidence for certain managers.[11][12] The company's liquidation ended in 2002.[1]
