Chinese Automobiles Fail in Crash Tests
The quality of vehicles manufactured by China is being questioned by many following poor results in preliminary crash tests.

Turkey’s Bisan plans to import partially-manufactured Lifan brand cars to complete and sell in Turkey, but has expressed concern about the overall quality of the automobiles.



Bisan General Director Abidin Dursun Kaleli notes putting flimsy Chinese cars on the Turkish market may produce terrible results, and said they planned to import the partially-manufactured cars to develop and supervise them safely in their own plants.




“Even a drill cannot make a hole in a Mercedes, whereas an ordinary nail easily pierces a Chinese car. Chinese cars crash all the way to the trunk in wall crash tests,” Kaleli says.



The import of Chinese cars is not currently permitted as they do not meet European standards. Cars are expected to be put on the market in Turkey by early 2008.


Certain companies from Turkey have already signed agreements with China, and some other 50 firms are reportedly about to sign agreements.



Bisan, which has already signed import agreements with two Chinese companies, states that all goods produced in China are not of low quality, and General Director Kaleli opines that Europe will not resist the pressure to import and will give them Euro-4 document when they meet EU standards.



Chinese companies have consistently failed crash tests every time they have applied for European standards, Kaleli informs.


In the crash tests, when Mercedes and BMW cars are crashed into a wall at 80 km speed, the damage to the crash test dummies is measured. These two brands score very little damage in such trials.



In the same tests, Chinese cars crash impact until the trunk and the dummy is nearly destroyed.



Kaleli said Chinese manufacturers must make the hoods thicker and use higher quality materials to pass the crash tests, otherwise tragedy may result.
