But so far, no 'homegrown' Chinese car company has entered the U.S. market to sell their own engineered vehicles here.
Technically, BYD is currently selling and producing electric busses and trucks in the US. BYD has a office in Los Angeles and a factory in Lancaster. They have donated or possibly just gave the Los Angeles Housing Authority at least 4 BYD F3DM in 2010.

BYD has a service station in San Carlos, California. Looking on Street View, I can see a BYD e6 parked way back. However, there's a sign saying "private property" so it is unlikely that I will go here.

The Dubai-based Stallion Group is the biggest assembler in Nigeria, and they make Chinese as well as non-Chinese (Hyundai, Nissan, VW, Honda for example) brands of vehicles.
