From the Huffington Post:
Making cars in China has been used to scare voters and even Chrysler workers in the presidential campaign’s waning days, but the reality is Chinese-assembled vehicles will not be exported to the U.S. anytime soon.
It makes no economic sense for major Western carmakers to build there and ship here. China-based automakers have not met the safety and quality standards to compete here yet, say automakers and analysts alike.
In addition, the Chinese economy has slowed; the nation’s domestic automakers are in survival mode, struggling to make money at home with no desire to use precious resources to establish dealers to sell in the U.S.
“The general stance is to build where you sell,” said Mary Barra, head of global product development for General Motors. “It makes sense from a quality, supply chain and cost perspective.”
Let’s not forget that Canada has been receiving Chinese made Honda Fit’s since late last year, how long until the USA is also receiving Chinese vehicles?
