The door opens for Chinese and Indian cars
Would you buy a car from a brand you’ve never heard of? A new study says 15% of people would do just that. It’s a study that gives hope to manufacturers in China and India who hope to bring their vehicles to the United States. The study of more than 30,000 new car and truck buyers was done by the automotive research firm AutoPacific.
Before you scoff at this idea, remember that at one time no one in this country had heard of Toyota, Kia or Volkswagen.
