Re: Guangzhou Auto Trumpche

Looks good. They picked a great platform to build the car on. Any information on how much the Fiat unit puts out?

Nice looking sedan but it seems headroom may be a problem in both front and rear.

Re: Guangzhou Auto Trumpchi

it's a very nice are,and it is solely developped by GAC group after many years of cooperation with toyota,honda,hino and other brands.
Wish Trumpchi won't let us disappointed and take our expectations,and hope it can achieve good sale.

Re: Guangzhou Auto Trumpchi

relatively high price
with its price it's meaningless to export it
$20K chineese cars outside China will need to develop its name first
low price helps a lot to new brand, especially chineese
chineese predjuces are still strong in most countries around the world
this is what China should think about firstly
but here i understand - Trumpchi is made to compete with local Accord and Camry

2011 sales of Trumpchi below expectations

Having been on the market for more than half a year, sales of GAC Motor's own brand sedan, the Trumpchi, have been less than stellar. Around 10,000 Trumpchis have been sold since the beginning of the year to July, Beijing Business Today reported today. Meanwhile, GAC General Manager Wu Song said that the manufacturer has revised its annual sales goal for the Trumpchi from 30,000 to 20,000.

"Prices of vehicles from Japanese joint ventures have decreased significantly, so own brand cars have lost their cost advantage," Mr. Wu commented, going further to say that the market was oversaturated.

GAC has been using the domestic character of the car in order to attract Chinese buyers, with Mr. Wu saying that the manufacturer would compete vigorously to create a world class Chinese brand. However, for the Trumpchi (pictured) to compete with international brands, GAC needs not only vigor, but quality. According to Mr. Wu, the Trumpchi has attained the fifth highest ranking in the C-NCAP safety test, well ahead of many JV vehicles.

GAC will be revising the price of the Trumpchi down by 10,000 yuan ($1,569). GAC dealers offer other discount for the car in order to maximize sales.
