Guangzhou Automobile Group said it may try to collaborate with the existing dealer network of a carmaker such as Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV as it seeks a path to sell its made-in-China vehicles in the US. The Chinese manufacturer plans to enter the US in 2019 and is examining a range of options to do so, Yu Jun, general manager of GAC Motor, said Wednesday. GAC aims to increase the size of its display at the Detroit auto show in January and said it was invited to the National Automobile Dealers Association annual convention, where it can recruit retailers. If it pulls it all off, it will be the first Chinese carmaker to crack the lucrative US market with a new brand, according to Reuters. To prepare for its entry in US, GAC will open an office in Silicon Valley in October with functions including research, product development and sales, according to Yu.
