Chery " Speranza " assembelled in Egypt this month

A Huge surprise to the Chery Dealer here , I have no idea how this deal go took shape

the Chery dealer is called CIG , and they currently IMPORT AND SELL only , The Chery Windcloud ( As Chery A11 ) , the QQ and the Chery A15 ( Flagcloud ) .

A couple of weeks we heard about a rumor of AboulFotooh ( former BMW dealer and importer ) is preparing to assemble a Chinese car in Egypt .

so it was nothing new , since the Brilliance Galena is now being produced in BMWs factories here .

but the funny thing is its a CHERY model ,
Called Chery Speranza , Apparently its the Oriental Sun but with some new twsists and modifications .

THe only photo available is in a newspaper and its covered , now alot is showing but it says SPERANZA and has the Chery Automobile logo on the FULL PAGE advertisment .

I will try to get a scan/picture as oon as possible .

No idea about the price/features yet , unless " A whole new sensation " is considered a feature :D

heres some more info guys

China-made Chery sedan to be assembled in Egypt

Chinese carmaker Chery Automobile announced on Tuesday in Cairo that the assembling lines of Chery sedan were officially kicked off in Egypt with the cooperation of an Egyptian car company.

The lines were under the cooperation with Chery's Egyptian partner Daewoo Motors Egypt (DME), a former partner of GM Daewoo Auto and Technology Co., Chery's vice-president Zhou Biren said at a press conference.

Chery's two car types, A5 with a 1.6-liter engine and A6 with a 2.0-liter engine, would be produced in Egypt in the forms of CKD, or completely knocked-down, and SKD, or semi-knocked-down, Zhou said.

He said that DME was expected to have an annual capacity of 25, 000 units in the initial stage, which could be further raised to 50,000 units in the future.

Chery signed the agreement of strategic partnership with DME in November 2005, shortly after the latter ended cooperation with the world known automobile manufacturer GM Daewoo.

According to the agreement, DME would pay for the use of Chery's technologies and brand while Chery would provide technological support and car parts for DME.

The assembled Chery cars would be sold in Egypt under a new name of Speranza, which DME said meant hope.

Officials with DME said that Speranza was set to win Egyptian car buyers with high quality and favorable prices.

Chery, which was set up in 1997 in central China's Anhui province, has made great success in both Chinese market and overseas market.

Statistics released by the Chinese embassy in Egypt indicated that Egypt has imported some 1,700 Chery's cars by the end of 2005.

The 1.6 engine is the new ACTECO, the 2.0 is the mitsubishi 4G63
The 1.6 is coming with manual transmission and the 2.0 is coming with automatic tiptronic trans.
The cars will be available in the showrooms next Friday as they told in the company when I called them.

The 1.6 price is 59,900 LE which is about 10,000 $
The 2.0 price is 99,900 LE which is about 17,000 $
(Very comepetetive prices if compared with others):thumb:
I believe that the 1.6 model is the A5, and the 2.0 model is the Eastar B11,
the cars will be sold under the brand name Speranza, I think to not conflict with Chery brand which has been distributed by another company (A11 and QQ).

Well, the A15 is not on the market, a couple were sold for car rental companies, as far as i heard it was too expensive , reached 115,000 L.E plus.

The chery dealer sells A11 models till now, priced at 58,900 L.E starting level!! while the dealer for the A5 now... sells it for 59,900 L.E ?! I'd prefer the A5 for sure. I just didnt get it, what chery is upto making here in our market... cuz you see, now we have 2 agents :D one selling A11 models, QQ's .... & the other, using the same chery logo, producing the A5, oriental sun models, but not under the name chery, under the name speranza...

so now, both are selling cars for chery, A11 for 58,900 L.E ... the other selling A5 for 59,900 L.E !? :lol: i see it funny. either one of them is loosing much money, or the other is gaining alot of money ...
