A Bowl of Cherys
Gasgoo reports that China's largest independent auto manufacturer is on the march. They've announced they're going to introduce 38 new models over the next five years: eight in 2008/2009, nine in 2010, 10 in 2011 and another 11 in 2012. When Chery's finished, they will have every major passenger car market segment covered, including minivans and SUVs. That's in addition to the small car they'll be building for Chrysler, and the Fiats and Alfa Romeos they'll assemble under a new agreement with Fiat. With so much development going on, you can bet they're taking American and European safety and emission standards into consideration. Chery has been China's biggest sedan exporter for the past five years; they aren't about to surrender that crown to no one, no how.
Brace yourselves, here they come!
