Gordon Chang, Forbes.com & the daily, and John Batchelor, the host of the John Batchelor Radio show talk to Lou Ann Hammond, CEO, drivingthenation.com
I started writing about Brand new 2012 cars under $15,000, but The Forbes story turned into an article about why the Chinese car companies would not bring cheap cars into the United States.
Once I got the numbers from Alexander Edwards, the President of Strategic Visions, I realized China would not be sending cheap cars to America.
What is the average price of a new car? That would tell me where I should look for the starting price of a Chinese car. The National Automobile Dealer Association (NADA) website says the average price of a brand new car is over $30,000.
Chang, Batchelor and Hammond talk about what type of car will be brought into United States, whether it is the internal combustion engine or the electric vehicle.
Chang uses BYD, a Chinese electric vehicle company that Warren Buffet owns 9.9%, as an example of an EV car that is thinking of coming to the United States.
We also talk about CODA automotive and whether it will ask for a U.S. government loan to manufacture in the United STates.
