Anthony Mason: The buzz in Detroit today wasn't for some sexy new American sports car; it was for a bland1 Chinese Sedan. This is the Geely CK.

Interpreter: Geely is the only privately2 operated Chinese auto3 manufacturer.

Anthony Mason: Geely's founder4, Shufu Li, whose portrait hangs Mao-like in the company booth, wants a piece of the American market.

Anthony Mason: Do you have a dream of how many cars you can sell here in the United States?

Interpreter: I do have that dream, but it's just a dream now.

Anthony Mason: That dream is to sell 100,000 cars a year here. The son of a Chinese peasant farmer, Li started Geely just a decade ago.

Anthony Mason: So he is a classic entrepreneur.

Wayne Xing (Publisher, China Automotive Review): He is.

Anthony Mason: Wayne Xing is the publisher of the China Automotive Review.

Wayne Xing: He started by just making refrigerator parts and then building refrigerators.

Anthony Mason: Geely's 10, 000 workers earn just $3.50 an hour, and now build 200,000 cars a year.

Anthony Mason: The Geely destined5 for the US is Spartan6 with a bare bones interior, no sunroof or heated seats. But if the styling doesn't capture your eye, the price will. Geely is hoping to sell this car here for less than $10,000.

John Harmer (Geely USA): This is just a basic fundamental reliable pragmatic automobile7.

Anthony Mason: There are more than 100 automakers in China, and some are aiming higher.

Malcolm Bricklin: What we are planning on doing is developing models for the United States market that are going to go up against Audi and BMW and Mercedes.

Anthony Mason: Malcolm Bricklin who brought the Yugo and Subaru to the US is working with China's Chery Company to build low-cost luxury cars for the US market, his target: 250,000 cars by 2008.

Anthony Mason: You think you can sell a quarter of million cars in this country from China?

Malcolm Bricklin: Oh, I think I can sell the cars. My problem is how do I do all of the logistics, bringing them over in the shipping8 and making sure they are all good when they get here.

Anthony Mason: Higher safety and emission9 standards will also be obstacles, but the flag dropped in Detroit today. The race is on, and the Chinese are on their way.

Anthony Mason: Anthony Mason, CBS News, Detroit.

Note------------
