I'm Belgian-American, but my Father lives in China and owns a business there, in Shanghai. I also have a close friend who lives in Taiyuan.

I'm from Egypt, several chinese auto makers are offering their cars in the egyptian market now (Chery, Geely, SMA, Hafei, Lifan) the best 2 sellers are Chery and Geely then Hafei is coming after them, some chinese brands came to Egypt and Dissappeared in short time like ZXauto (high customs and taxes on cars with engines larger than 1.6) and Jiangnan (which was fighting against Maruti that is already in the egyptian market 10 years ago).
Zhonghua is going to assemble its cars in Egypt this summer (I would like to have one).

I think chinese cars are not bad, and improving very fast, I was interisting about the chinese cars 4-5 years ago, but now I can see the differnce, and I'm thinking about buying a chinese car very soon.

Oh yes, I have forgotten: the yellow car here is a 1987 Beijing BJ 212 which I bought in Holland. It is the first Chinese car licensed in France. I am a member of the International Beijing Jeep Owners Club, see our website (I am not allowed to give it to you as long as I am a junior member, but imagine ...beijingjeep.org.)

CMVDC is yours??? How can it be true??? I once visited this website by a simple search in Google and it was ALL BY CHANCE that I found it. I was just wondering who could be this ''French guy'' collecting so much information about Chinese cars but today, God knows how I meet him right here, and he even invited me for a ride on his BJ212!!!! The world is so small, isn't it?

Anyway, I'm so surprised and so happy to meet you Erik, and It's very kind of you. I do wanna find some chance to travel to the south one day. Here in France, I have five years' studies and a stay in France without being to the South will never be complete, right? I'm sure it'll be fantasic to drive in the Pyrenees on a BJ212.

The BJ Motor Show is in November? I thought it was around this summer. What a pity I can't go with you coz I return to France in September. But thanks for your proposition, it is a great idea!

Looking forward to see you one day.

You're right! The Chinese car companies should really enter Canada first and test the waters, even Mexico and South America. Enter US and Europe last since they are the toughest markets and the most demanding.

(But since I live in the US and I want to buy one NOW, bring it!)

Just beware - Canada has tried and rejected unusual imports before, notably Lada, Skoda, and Innocenti.

Hyundai is an exception to that story, since Hyundai entered Canada four years prior to entering the US and established a rather better rep up north than they did here in the south.
