For those of you unfamiliar with the issue I recommend reading a bit on the background of FSO: General Motors, which was Daewoo's partner for decades before their international venture, and also took over the Korean company now known as GM DAT yet without their overseas subsidiaries like FSOseems a natural partner.
Moreover, the former Daewoo model Lanos, which is manufactured at FSO, is now assembled in the Ukraine with some locally made components and sold in Russia where Ukrainian-made cars attract no tariffs as Chevrolet!
Manufacturing-wise, FSO would also be a good partner for GM, as the most likely cars to be assembled there are GM DAT designs, which are in many ways technologically similar to the cars produced in Warsaw for many years.
FSO actually even started a weird cooperation involving GM DAT cars now, but their disassembly rather than assembly - read the story here: The Ukrainian delegation is in China now, and announced the official agreement might be signed within a month. The agreement would stipulate for Chery cars to be manufactured at FSO for both domestic and other EU markets, allowing Chery to bypass the customs duties.
Chery cars would be very cheap by European standards, the daily speculates. Chery already struck and agreement with the Avtotor assembly plant in Kaliningrad, Russia, to assemble cars for the Russian market.
It is worth noting that it is no secret that Chery's QQ is a copy of the original Daewoo Matiz with some minor exterior tweaks which was the cornerstone of a bitter litigation between Chery and GM in China.
On the other hand, Chery's model would still have to get all the necessary licenses and permissions to be sold in Europe - this can prove quite an obstacle. Fiat Auto Poland's president, Enrico Pavoni, said that Chinese cars won't come cheap unless the Chinese will wind a way to skimp on passing legal requirements.
The article also gives an update on some other issues - GM DAT granted FSO an extension of the rights to manufacture Lanoses it was originally expected to expire this yearno word on Matiz.
Rzeczpospolita also quoted the leaving Chevrolet Europe president, Herbert Spranger, on stating that to prevent cannibalization, GM will need to ensure Chevrolets are much cheaper than Opels, and they could easily achieve that by setting up production in EU to avoid tariffs.
GM also intends on producing engines at Daewoo's former Romanian plant in Craiova Romania will probably join the EU shortlybut the production of cars there was ruled out. My take is that while the deal with GM could easily start within months, the way Chery is constantly delaying their entry to EU or American markets might prove that this is more of a PR move on both sides, with the intention by AvtoZAZ to put pressure on GM, and Chery willing to gain credibility by gaining a possible foothold in the EU.
I have not heard of any of the Chery cars clearing legal obstacles that prevent their sales in the EU.A waist cincher is designed to make the abdomen region appear much smaller. It is generally worn by women who wish to achieve a much slimmer look and fit in tighter dresses.
