Who knows

It was a weird move due to our market being RHD you would have thought they would have exported elsewhere (LHD market).

Maybe it was a marketing or just to prove engineering ability, who knows ?

SVW Polo Sedans were only sold in Australia.

Sales were not good, VW Australia wanted annual sales of 600 a year for 5 yrs.
They never broke the 100 unit mark during its sale here (for a year) unfortunately.

Press were excited at start of deal but some models had minor rattles that got into press vehicles, although this is not the major reason of it failing.
VW Aust. priced it very high for its class.

Another reason for its flop might be people were scared of Chinese product.

BTW Rattles are not just a Chinese cars fault most makers have minor faults like this I've read many reviews with this fault.

BYD Auto is also selling the FLYER ( new facelift ) here , very cheap $6500 but I think its alot much better than the crappy Geely HQ which is sold for the same .

Also there are some wierd chinese motorcycles that I will try to get thier names soon , I saw wierd cuz they look so out of proportions.

I have a spyshot of a Brilliance GALENA chasis being put together and painted in the BAG ( Bavarian Auto Group - BMW factory here that puts together the new 3 , 5 , x3 and soon the 7 series ) as its supposed to start to build them up in a few months .

Ghabour Group ( Hyundai dealer and factory here , the number 1 selling cars in Egypt ) just recently made an agreement with FAW , to become the Only Dealer/Distributor of FAW cars and trucks in the Middle east and to build some of them at the Hyundai Factory .

now dates yet , just announcements .

The Geely distrubitor here , Symex has also managed to get another chineese company , Chang An or something like that , selling a wierd looking MPV called Combo for the same price of a CK-1 .
