I.M. Group, the UK-based automotive importer and distributor for Subaru, Isuzu and Daihatsu, has signed an agreement that will see it import vehicles from Chinese auto maker, Great Wall Motor Company Limited, into Europe starting next year.
Initially, the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania will be targeted. Then, from 2011, launches in Scandinavia, the UK and Ireland are planned.
The Great Wall Motor Company, one of the few privately-owned Chinese car companies, has designed and built all of the European-bound models specifically to meet EU whole-vehicle type approval standards.
Further details about the launch of the Great Wall brand will be announced by I.M. Group next year.
