About what kind of Chinese car brands will appear in Russia in the foreseeable future, said Rossiyskaya Gazeta.
Omoda and Jetour (sub-brands of Chery), Tank (sub-brand of Great Wall) and Voyah (sub-brand of Dongfeng) have already announced their plans to enter the Russian market. Hongqi, a subsidiary of FAW, is certifying two premium sedans and an electric SUV in Russia.
Other Chinese brands may also appear in Russia. So, AvtoVAZ could compete with Wuling with its budget models.
“The Russians definitely fell in love with the products of the Chery concern, this also applies to the premium sub-brand Exeed. Therefore, I am almost sure that our car enthusiasts will warmly welcome both Omoda and Jetour products. But, in my opinion, the latter is more likely to win the wallets of Russians – mainly due to a memorable and stylish appearance. Fans of the “big German three” will surely like the Hongqi, and those who used to dream of the “Kruzak” or “Gelendvagen” will be quite satisfied with the Tank off-road vehicles. MG and Beijing also have good prospects, but their cars are much more expensive, ”said Andrey Trubin, a columnist for the Chinese Automobiles portal and editor of the InsideEVs website.
He added that NIO and XPeng electric vehicles may also appear on our market. Their models can be a great alternative to the electric Nissan Leaf and Tesla with mileage.
