THE CHINESE ARE HERE!
“The Chinese are coming!” This is not a new headline in the automotive industry. But this time, the Chinese aren’t coming; they are here and making an impact. On Feb. 1, SAA members and guests had the rare opportunity to hear directly from two Chinese automakers and China auto expert Michael Dunne on how Chinese automakers and suppliers are not only disrupting the U.S auto market but how their strategies are unique, accelerated and in a totally different way from the Japanese and Korean low-price approach.
Michael Dunne's presentation is located in the members section.
