DamilerChrysler's is considering branding this small car, the QQ or A1, made by Chery (a Chinese car company), and selling it in America.

Shipped from China, it will market for less then $8000 USD per unit.

What do you guys think?

I think it's a cute car, and well worth the low price. xD I would seriously consider getting it in the future as a car to start with, or a city convieniance car.

Wow, that looks like a small car. But umm that is a nice low price (I think xD). And I agree. I would probably buy a car like that, or something similarily cheap to start off with. Thing that conserns me the most is the quality of it. As you mentioned, it is a Chinese car company, and all the Chinese do is mass produce stuff like that, and they don't really believe in patents. So who knows what materails were used and if the car is good enough to use on a daily basis?

That's true, and also it may be from a low-tech industry that pollutes a lot and turn away environment-caring customers.

I don't really mind quality (hell, you could spend endlessly for a quality car) in a car, as long as it looks good.

That's a really cool car I guess. But it's not so perfect in my eyes, however, if I decided to buy it, I'd choose for it to be a baby blue.

Well it doesn't really look all that appealing to me :<

If it were to come down my way, I'd only consider buying it after I saw it's safety rating.

Oh my gosh, it's tiny! :O I probably won't buy it though - as cheap as it is, since I have no idea of how Chinese cars work (reliability, etc...), since they're still relatively new to the car market...
