As it is already known, the Bahia government is already looking for interested people at the Ford plant in Camaçari, which closed with the Taubaté-SP and Horizonte-CE units, although the latter will close its doors only in the fourth quarter.
However, according to CNN Brasil, there are already four Chinese automakers interested in Ford’s car and engine plant, namely Great Wall Motors, Changan Auto, Geely and GAC.
The site also reports that businessman Carlos Alberto de Oliveira Andrade, CAOA, would be behind one of them. From what was known in the past, Changan engaged the Brazilian businessman in the business related to the Taboão factory in ABC Sao Paulo, which ended up being sold on a property.

All of the above manufacturers have international interests and Great Wall Motors may be trying to enter Brazil for the third time. In the first, in 2008, it even introduced some cars here, but the function did not work. At the time, he wanted to settle in Sao Paulo and even had a national website, but without success.
Changan Auto has a relationship with Ford, which is indirectly responsible for the production of the Territory, although it is also responsible for the Peugeot Landtrek.
The manufacturer is already active in the Latin American market and has also tried to enter Brazil through the extinct Districar group. The Chinese brand has very competitive products in neighboring countries and can be a major player here
Geely is already making great strides in the international market, having Volvo as well as Lotus. Here, it would be interesting to enter the Lynk & Co brand, with a new offer for selling cars with a subscription and also without a dealer network, with delivery and services having been contracted on the Internet.
Finally, GAC (Guangzhou Auto) cooperates with several manufacturers in China, but currently the brand stands out for the range of attractive designed electric cars, such as the Aion models.[Fonte: CNN Brasil]
