CHAMCO and Zhongxing cooperation
Chinese car manufacturer Zhongxing is aiming to export it's models to US in coming years :thumb:
"A Chinese state-owned manufacturer of pick-up trucks and sport utility vehicles (SUV) has said it will start exporting to the US, the South China Morning Post reported.
A spokesman for Zhong Xing Automobile (ZXA), based in Hebei province in north China, told the Hong Kong paper that the company aimed to have the first Chinese vehicle on sale in the US within 16 months, with planned exports of 30,000 in 2007, rising to 150,000 by 2010.
Two other Chinese firms, Chery Automobile and Geely Automobile, have announced plans to export to the US, both targeting the low-end passenger car market, selling for less than 10,000 usd per unit.
The ZXA spokesman, who gave his name only as Wang, said the firm was in negotiations with agents in the US to set up a sales network and was working with testing and certification centres outside the US to pass the vehicles to meet US requirements.
The pick-ups and SUVs will sell for more than 100,000 yuan.
ZXA has an annual production of 40,000 pick-ups and 15,000 SUVs, with assembly operations in Malaysia, Russia and Ukraine and last year exported 7,000 vehicles, the report said."
SUV's tough row to hoe in fuel-starved US
Mel Rapton, a Honda principal in Sacramento, said he has an agreement to sell pickups and SUVs made by Zhongxing Automobile at a price of about $10,000 each according to www.freep.com Detroit Free Press on 12/17/05.
i find it funny that such a tiny maker expects to make to the US way before the bigger makers like SAIC and CHERY etc
Hebei Zhongxing latest automaker with plans for U.S. market

Toyota, Honda, Nissan and a host of other automakers export cars to the United States.
So why not Hebei Zhongxing Automobile Co.?
Tiny Zhongxing (pronounced jong shing), which sold a grand total of 7,840 vehicles in 2005 (down 34.0 percent from 2004), became the fourth Chinese automaker with plans to sell cars in the United States.
One problem, though: The Chinese automaker has no models salable in the United States. They don't meet U.S. emissions and safety standards.
ZX Automobile Co. of North America, a subsidiary of China America Automotive Inc., of Parsippany, N.J., says it plans to import SUVs and pickups manufactured by Zhongxing in the second half of 2007.
Zhongxing president Xiao Wei has admitted that technology is a huge obstacle. But Zhongxing is charging ahead.
"We are studying the requirements for the U.S. market," said Yang Yongjin, manager of Zhongxing's import and export department. "We will need to make the right adjustments as far as emissions and safety requirements to our models. The project isn't the responsibility of my department yet."
Chery Automobile Co., a small but successful Chinese automaker, originally aimed to begin exports to the United States in 2007. But its engineers have admitted that the task is tougher than expected. They now think 2009 is more realistic.
China America is not the first U.S. company to claim it will import Zhongxing's vehicles. David Shelburg, an Arizona businessman, also has said he would import a Zhongxing SUV. But Zhongxing never announced the plan and no SUVs appeared.
Zhongxing is in Baoding, a city a few hours outside of Beijing in northern China. Baoding also is home to Great Wall Motor Co., another Chinese SUV maker aiming to sell vehicles in the United States."
Another Chinese automaker wants in on U.S.
Hebei Zhongzing is the name of yet another Chinese automaker that plans to have its vehicles sold in the U.S. ZX Automobile Co. of North America, which is a subsidiary of China America Automotive Inc., claims that it will be selling SUVs and pickups manufactured by Hebei Zhongzing in the U.S. by late 2007.
Hebei Zhongzing is a small automaker even by Chinese standards, with a total annual output of last year amounting to only 7,840 vehicles. No vehicle in its current lineup meets U.S. emissions and safety standards, either. The company's president acknowledges that "technology is a huge obstacle," according to Autoweek. Meeting U.S. emissions and safety standards has been a thorn in the side of Malcolm Bricklin, whose insertion of Chery Automobile into the U.S. market has been delayed by this country's stiff safety and emissions requirements.
Zhongzing joins Malcolm Bricklin's Chery Automobile and Shufu Li's Geely Automobile Company in the Chinese auto industry's effort to establish a presence in the biggest automotive market in the world.

Ako još niste zapamtili ime ovog kineskog proizvođača - Hebei Zhongxing, vrijeme je da to učinite jer ova marka počinje ozbiljniji prodor na europsko tržište. Kinezi još uvijek dolaze kroz mala vrata do kupaca u EU, ali i Japanci su prije 30 godina dolazili sramežljivo, kao i Korejci prije 20 no obje su marke danas ovdje vrlo popularne.
Tako je sada red i na Kinezima koji ulaze na tržište preko jednog belgijskog uvoznika. S njime će prodavati svoje sporstke terence i pick-upove, a prvi koji dolazi je SUV, koji ipak nema kinesko ime, već svima u Europi lako pamtljivo - Landmark. Dakle Hebei Zhongxing Landmark je njihov prvi šminkerski terenac koji će za početak biti opremljen Mitsubishijevim benzincem obujma 2.4 litre.
Nije poznato kako je ovaj Kinez prošao na crash testovima budući da su loši rezultati glavni kamen spoticanja na zapadnim tržištima. Primjerice nedavno se jedan drugi kineski terenac Landwind (Kinezi očito vole 'zemaljska' imena) proizvođača Jianglinga na testovima EURO Ncapa doslovce razletio! Zbog tako lošeg rezultata nije osvojio niti jednu zvjezdicu što je bio presedan. Nadamo se da će Hebei Zhongxing - Landmark biti malo bolje sreće. (dč)
it say...landmark has come to belgium...some belgian export will sell those vehicles in europe...also the pick ups will be in offer...you see that they have mitsubishi engine
also it's sad...does this vehcile have crash test...and is it good or bad (like landwind)

Chinese car uncertified for U.S. sales, but dealers sought
By ALYSHA WEBB | AUTOMOTIVE NEWS

DETROIT -- Trolling for dealers, a New Jersey-based importer will show two Chinese vehicles at the National Automobile Dealers Association convention in Las Vegas in February.
Importer China America Cooperative Automotive Inc. wants to bring two models to the United States: a pickup and an SUV. They are assembled by Zhongxing Automobile Co., a small auto manufacturer in Baoding, in the northern Chinese province of Hebei.
But the vehicles have not met stiff U.S. emissions and safety standards. So dealers signed by the importer, also called Chamco, may have no vehicles to sell. Zhongxing produced 7,800 units in 2005.
Chamco, of Parsippany, N.J., says it has an exclusive agreement with Zhongxing to distribute the vehicles in the United States. It wants to sign up 120 dealers initially. Dealers must put up $250,000, which gives them an equity stake in Chamco, says William Pollack, the importer's executive vice president for strategic planning and marketing.
Says Chamco CEO Veechwin Li: "Our biggest challenge is to make sure the quality will be there."
