So why will Wuzheng do better than, say, Bering did in the 1990s? Or any of the other brands that have come and gone in the US? What makes Wuzheng any different than Aro or Proton or Chery or Geely?

What weight classes is Wuzheng expecting to sell in the US?

After visiting your website, I have the same questions (aside from the weight class one). Do you really think there's a market for an off-highway 7,500 GVWR ONE-cylinder (1.6L!!!) truck in the US?

Bering was an odd hydrid - korean truck parts melded with US parts at no real cost advantage, trying to compete directly with existing trucks in same class on performance and price. Then a death blow by Chrysler & Hyundai who both wanted to dismantle the exclusive agreement between Hyundai and Bering USA.

Chinese truck brands?

Those are passenger automobiles. Tough market that we have no intention of entering. The Wuzheng Series 5 is a work truck. It is a tool. No matter what I answer now, before, in the future, always remember that. It is a tool, and will be marketed as such.

Priced a Kawasaki Mule lately?

I greatly appreciate the questions, please ask anything.

I read somewhere that Mahindra (India) is doing really well in the US in selling tractors and such (like in New Orleans, where people have less money).

Are you focusing your truck in certain demographics/area?

the Challenge

Toyota has a majority stake in both Daihatsu and Hino.

Daihatsu's foray into the North American market failed shortly after it began.
Hino has been struggling to capture a piece of the U.S. truck market since the 1970's.

What is unique about Wuzheng's product?

In its pursuit of success, I would suggest that Wuzheng and its agents use Hino as a case study.

ARO is not a passenger car.

All trucks above Class 3 are "tools" and are marketed as such. Do you think that this is the best time to launch a new truck with the huge downturn in the truck market coming next year? Is price alone a reason to buy a truck from an unknown (to the buyers) maker? Especially since your unique (not known quantities like Cat, Cummins, Detroit, Navistar, etc) engines will not be serviceable at the "local dealer" since there are none?
