Let’s face it. We’re going to have Chinese cars soon. It’s just a matter of who and when.

Let’s start with the manufacturer I think has the most chances to enter NA, Great Wall, they’ve got a small pickup which is something everybody says they want, the Steed (Known as the Wingle in China, you can tell why they don’t call it that in the West).

There’s the Hover, which is very Axiom-like, and that’s certainly not a bad thing, the Axiom was awesome.

Then there’s the M4, which could make a very good Juke/Trax/HR-V/et cetera competitor.

Australia’s had Great Wall for a while, and the UK gets them too.

There’s also a few other models, but these three would probably be sufficient for North America. Chery and SAIC could also have a chance, through their Qoros and MG brands respectively.

Then, there’s another truck manufacturer, Foton, who make a very tasty looking Cummins-powered small pickup, also already being sold in Australia.

Perhaps we could see a few manufacturers partnering up to sell cars. I’m thinking Qoros/Foton and MG/Great Wall dealers could work. Neither MG or Qoros have trucks, Great Wall’s passenger cars don’t look great, and Foton only makes trucks.
