Jan. 7 (Bloomberg) -- BYD, the Chinese automaker backed by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, said Chinese cars are poised to begin hitting U.S. showrooms by next year. Bloomberg's Jamie Butters reports on Bloomberg Television's "In The Loop." (Source: Bloomberg)

They have attempted to try to push to the u.s.. they didn't a few years ago so why now?

Why not.

They are saying it is next year.

They keep trying.

They were saying 2010 m in thousand 11 and in 2012. they mated to the u.s. selling electric buses.

Some of their airport locations.

They are making some inroads.

They try to get four vehicles in less than 24 months, it will be a real challenge.

The new target is 2015. , and what will be their flagship model to lure american consumers.

They have not been clear.

The chin will be one, named after the dynasty china brought together.

Using a name like that can draw some of the challenges.

Do americans want to buy a chinese car for its own sake?

It seems like kind of a stretch but it is possible.

They will have to really stand out to break into a competitive field and have fantastic cars.

Yes.

It is a little bit confounding.

Are americans really ready for a fully chinese made car?

There has been some talk, volvo, the chinese automaker, could make logos in china and that has possibility because volvo is a well-known brand turreted the engineering is strong, they have always had great safety and quality.

Bringing a new brand, tesla was able to come out as a new brand but that was a beautiful car that performed extremely well.

It is a whole different ballgame trying to bring a chinese ran as a new entry.

It will be a real challenge.

Will they try to use the buffett name?

They have not said that.

It would almost make sense.

You might have a better chance coming in as buffett motors.

They seem committed to build your dreams.

They are supposed to be luxury like.

They are supposed to be electric or hybrid.

They are clean and beautiful, that is supposed to be the plan.

There are really good companies already delivering that kind of stuff.

Several companies.

Buffett would be an interesting car model for them.

I do not know how that would work.

Thank you so much.
