Chery confirmó que fabricará los modelos Face y Fulwin 2 en Brasil

La automotriz china Chery confirmó que abrirá su segunda planta en el Mercosur, después de la ensambladora que opera en Uruguay. Estará ubicada en la localidad brasileña de Jacareí, en el estado de San Pablo.

Allí se invertirán 130 millones de dólares para comenzar a operar en el 2013 a un ritmo de producción de 50 mil vehículos anuales, en dos turnos. La segunda fase de inversión demandará otros 270 millones de dólares, para agregar un tercer turno y elevar la capacidad de producción a 150 mil vehículos anuales.

El monto total de 400 millones es muy similar a los 500 millones de dólares que el empresario argentino Franco Macri había prometido radicar en nuestro país para abrir una planta local de Chery. Aunque los directivos argentinos de Chery-Socma insisten en que los planes siguen en pie, aunque demorados, la inversión para la Argentina nunca fue admitida ni mencionada por la casa matriz de Chery en China.

El Chery Face (conocido como A1 en otros mercados) es el mismo modelo que se ensambla en la planta uruguaya de Carrasco desde el año pasado, con la mayoría de sus componentes traídos desde China. El Face se vende en la Argentina desde junio pasado.

El Fulwin 2 es un nuevo sedán del segmento chico, que ya comenzo a ser vendido en algunos países del Este europeo, donde compite en precio con el Dacia/Renault Logan. La versión que se comercializa en esos mercados tiene un motor naftero 1.5 de 108 caballos de potencia. Su equipamiento de seguridad incluye doble airbag y frenos ABS.

Tal como se informa en el comunicado de prensa que se reproduce a continuación, todos los modelos de Chery que se fabriquen en Brasil estarán adaptados para funcionar con alcohol.

El Chery Face/A1 que se vende en la Argentina desde junio se ensambla en Uruguay. A partir del 2013 se fabricará en Brasil.

Chery invests in Brazil auto industrial park

On September 17, Chery Automobile Co., Ltd. and the St. Paul State Government entered into a framework agreement on plant investment. Hence, Chery became the first Chinese automaker that had invested in a plant in Brazil.

Located in Jacarei, St. Paul, the project will be wholly funded by Chery and constructed into a Chery industrial park in Brazil with an area of 1,000,000m2 and a total investment of USD 400,000,000 according to the overall plan. The project is scheduled to be constructed in two phases: Phase 1, with an investment of USD 130,000,000, will build a plant with an annual two-shift production capacity of 50,000 vehicles in 2013; Phase 2, with an investment of USD 270,000,000, will achieve an annual three-shift production capacity of 150,000 vehicles, and will introduce outstanding Chinese suppliers to the park on the basis of the business conditions of the market and plant to provide matching products for Chery and other vehicle manufacturers. Chery model series such as S12 (A1) and A13 (Fulwin 2) will be introduced at the initial stage, all of which are flexible fuel vehicles meeting the requirements of the Brazilian market, with others to be introduced on the basis of market development at the later stage.

In September 2009, Chery Tiggo went on the Brazilian market, won great attention and recognition from the market, and was ranked as one of the best SUV of the year in Brazil. In 2010, follow-up models such as Chery A1 and A3 passed the Brazilian emission and safety certifications and were successfully introduced to the market. Now, Chery has authorized over 50 sales service outlets in Brazil, and is extending its sales service network rapidly to the west, south and north of Brazil with the developed southeast as the center. With the constant growth of Brazil’s demand for Chery vehicles, Chery has resolved to invest in a plant in Brazil. It conducted in-depth and meticulous surveys of six states on macroeconomic environment, land and resource supplies, tax incentive, financial support, supply chain, logistics, trade union and labor cost, took into consideration facts that St. Paul and Jacarei are in the center of the Brazilian auto consumption market, have a complete auto supply chain and enjoy exceptional conditions for auto industry development, and finally fixed Jacarei as the site through comprehensive comparison.

Mr. Mário Mugnaini Jr., chairman of the Investment Bureau of St. Paul; Mr. Hamilton Ribeiro Mota, mayor of Jacarei; Mr. João Carlos Maranha, deputy secretary-general of the Development Department of St. Paul; Mr. Emerson Goulart Caetano de Souza, secretary-general of the Development Department of St. Paul; Mr. Chen Shulong, secretary of the CPC Wuhu Municipal Committee; Mr. Yin Tongyue, chairman of Chery Automobile Co., Ltd and other leaders attended the signing ceremony.
