The chinese cars continue to crowd the market and on this occasion a new Chinese car brand will arrive in Chile in 2023, we are talking about Shineray. The Chinese brand is integrated into the Chilean market by the hand of Gildemesiter, number 75 in the segment of light and medium vehicles.
The firm was born in 1997 as a financial services operator, before becoming an industrial group dedicated to vehicles (motorcycles, cars, construction and agricultural machinery). Today, it sells Shineray brand cars and motorcycles as well as SWM brand cars and motorcycles, although depending on the market they can be mixed.
The new brand of Chinese cars in Chile 2023
This is because, SWM, a historic Italian motorcycle brand that was born in 1971 under the name SVVM (Sironi Vergani Vimercate Milano), which later became SWM (Speedy Working Motors). It was bought a few years ago by Shineray and is used to sell motorcycles and cars in Europe.
Actually, the model with the brand that arrives in Chile, the G05 PRO, is really a SWM marketed under Shineray by Brilliance.
The term “Shineray by Brilliance” is due to the fact that since 2012 there has been a joint venture or association between both manufacturers called “Brilliance Shineray Chongqing Automobile Co.”, which is in charge of producing the light vans sold in Chile as well as Shineray vehicles. . However, Brilliance filed for bankruptcy in early 2022, so the joint venture operations ended up being taken over by Shineray.
Although, it is worth mentioning, Shineray will take on its own entity in the second half of the year, when new models are launched, leaving Brilliance as a brand of light commercial vehicles exclusively.
