Chery only started selling cars in 2001. They sold 190000 cars last year. This year going to sell at least 350,000 cars this year. they'll get 1 million cars by the middle of next year.

I think Chery is tapping into a strong desire on the part of many Chinese people to see a homegrown independent Chinese branded car become a leader.

I talk to Chinese people on the mychery.net Chinese board regularly, and this is a common feeling expressed. There is a lot of pride associated with being able to support a Chinese car, especially as Chery's quality has been rapidly increasing in the past couple years.

I guess those people who buy Chery are nationalistic Chinese but Chery is also selling well in middle east and some other countries.

Default China's Chery prepares to make a splash

von Geoff Dyer, Shanghai

The micro-car has changed the Chinese urban landscape and is now headed for the West; or so its manufacturers hope.


A decade ago, private cars in a Chinese city tended to be big and black. But over the last couple of years, a dash of colour has begun to appear on the streets, small darts of metallic lime green and garish yellow.
The bright colours are usually found on the QQ, a micro-car made by Chinese company Chery that was one of the bestsellers in the domesticcar market last year, with sales rising a 130 per cent to 110,000 units.
The QQ is one of the models that have taken Chinese companies from being bit players in their own car market to significant competitors. The best selling model in China last year was the Charade, a sub-compact car made by First Auto Works, another local manufacturer.
In total, Chinese brands won a market share last year of 26 per cent, up from 2 per cent in 2000, putting them just behind Japanese brands which had 27 per cent.
The surge of Chinese brands would be of natural interest to the leading global automakers because of the growing importance of the Chinese market. Yet it is of particular significance given that Chery and several other Chinese companies have announced plans over the last year to begin exporting cars to the US and Europe.
"I showed these market share figures to some people in Detroit a few weeks ago, and they were stunnedby the Chinese sales," says Michael Dunne, president of Automotive Resources Asia, a Shanghai industry consultancy.
The question being asked of the Chinese companies is whether they have won market share simply by selling at low prices, or whether they are also beginning to master the dark arts of branding and marketing - skills they will need if they are to succeedoverseas.
Price is definitely a big factor. The QQ retails for Rmb33,000 ($4,109), compared with Rmb46,000 for the General Motors Spark in the same category.
Such low prices have helped create a new generation of car-buyers, less concerned about the status symbol of a large vehicle. The greater fuel efficiencyof smaller cars has been an added incentive in a period of higher oil prices.

The Chinese companies have so far faced lower research costs. The QQ first won notoriety through allegations that it was a near-exact copy of the Spark, including the components as well as the shape. Indeed GM suedChery in China, although the two companies settled the case last year.
When asked why the QQ is so much cheaper than the Spark, the manager of a Chery dealership in Shanghai quipped: "Because we do not have patent fees."
QQ sales were more than four times those of the Spark last year. Yet industry observers say there is more to the QQ's success than a low price.
Unlike most other Chinese brands, whose marketing involves glitzy gimmicks, Chery has managed to create a significant amount of buzzaround the model, especially among young people.
The brand itself is also the name of an instant messaging service that is popular among young Chinese and the company has used the internet - including collaborations with the Sina.com portal - to reach new consumers. The bright colours have also helped establish an image.
"More than any other Chinese model, the QQ has managed to establish an identity for itself," says Chris Reitermann, managing director of the Beijing office of OgilvyOne, the advertising agency. The company's sales network has been revamped and is beginning to win plaudits for its flexible approach.
However, there are still quality concerns about Chery's cars. According to JD Power, the car consultancy, the QQ generated 30 per cent more problems than the Spark last year. When Chery starts selling in the US, nothing could scupper its brand name more quickly than persistent quality complaints.
