General Motors’ Made-in- China Cars to Flood the U.S.

Published By : 07 Dec 2015 | Published By : QYRESEARCH

General Motors recently confirmed that the Buick Envision, the Chinese-made one, will be sold in the U.S. car market next summer. Dealers were apprised about this last week, although rumors had been circulating for a few weeks.

The Envision from General Motors is almost the same size as a Ford Escape. As per GM, the Envision that fills the gain the Buick’s lineup, will be competition with the Lincoln MKC, Audi Q5, and Acura RDX.

GM plans to introduce the Envision at the North American International Auto Show to be held in Detroit next month.

However, the Envision is not the first car to be manufactured in China and sold in the U.S. That distinction is for the Volvo S60 Inscription, a sedan that struck American showrooms earlier this year in the spring. In 2010, Geely, a Chinese enterprise, bought the Swedish car manufacturer from Ford. However, the crossover of the Buick in China, will be the first made-in-China offering from one of the Big Three.

Though GM was not the one to lead the bandwagon of foreign companies in China, it was Volkswagen that dis, but once it forayed into the market with Buicks, the pickup was fast. Depending on the performance of the auto market in any current year, it has been either at the top or close-to-the top in the country.

It is important for GM to be on this position. China is currently the largest car market in the world after having surpassed America in 2009, and as per an estimation of the auto industry GM is likely to remain at the top indefinitely.

In the current year, in the U.S. about 7 million fewer cars will be sold than in China. In this regard, the LMC Automotive commented that the number indicates the closest that the U.S. can get in the car market, though the U.S. remains at a distant No.2.
