SAIS in one of China's largest automakers. Some of the imported cars will come directly from SAIC's assembly plants in Shanghai and Nanjing
SAIC Motor Corporation Ltd., one of China's largest automakers, (the Chinese partner of General Motors Corp and Volkswagen AG), said it has selected Israel, the UK, and Spain as its first target countries in Europe.
Regular import of vehicles made by the Chinese carmaker will begin by Peugeot Citroen local importer David Lubinski Ltd during the fourth quarter of 2009, and marketing will begin in January 2010.
It is understood that some of the imported cars will come directly from SAIC's assembly plants in Shanghai and Nanjing, while others will come from the company's UK assembly plants, which it acquired from Rover.
The cars that will be imported later this year will comply with EU Euro-5 emissions standards.
