OFFICIAL: Chery to build the Hornet for Dodge

In 2018 China Car Times was acquired by Autowise. This article originally appeared on ChinaCarTimes.com.

In news thats almost certain to make Malcolm Bricklin cry, and probably throw some more mud Cherys way. Dodge has announced the worst kept secret in the automotive world – Chery will build the Dodge Hornet for Dodge. Does this mean that the Dodge Hornet will be available in China? We hope so, although it will most definitely come with a super marked up price just like the new Mini and the new VW Beatle did. This piece of news puts more confidence in the minds of consumers that Chery can compete on both price, and quality and safety alongside the rest of the worlds auto giants

Heres a news extract from China Daily:

DETROIT – DaimlerChrysler AGs Chrysler Group and Chinas Chery Automobile Co. have agreed on a plan for the Chinese manufacturer to build small cars to be sold worldwide.

The cars, which already are being designed, would be based on an existing model but will be modified jointly by Chrysler and Chery engineers, Chrysler spokesman Jason Vines said Friday. Chrysler is taking the lead on the design and will ensure that the vehicles meet high quality standards, he said.

They will be sold at Chrysler dealerships in the U.S., Europe and elsewhere under a Chrysler Group brand as either a Dodge, Chrysler or Jeep.

Chery will build tiny cars known in the industry as B-cars, but it also may build something larger for Chrysler, Vines added.

In other news, our internet still doesnt work properly and the same for all over China by the looks of things, but on the bright side were going to pay a visit to the Roewe dealership later today.
