GM to sell China made vehicles in 2011
Chinese automakers like Chery and BYD have been trying to break into the U.S. market for years, but General Motors could become the first automaker to sell China-made vehicles in America. A new document reveals GM is planning to sell China-made cars in the U.S. by 2011.
The document also reveals GM expects its U.S. sales to grow by 50 percent by the year 2014.
Automotive News suggests the China-made vehicles will be small cars similar to the upcoming Chevrolet Spark...
... GM is planning to market made in China cars to American consumers as early as 2011, the same year the company’s heralded Chevrolet Volt electric car goes on sale.
According to the report, GM plans to sell nearly 18,000 Chinese-made vehicles in the US in 2011, with that number rising to over 50,000 by 2014.
Seriously, an American brand selling Chinese made cars? Sounds strange to me. I would want them to create a new brand to sell these cars made in China.
