"And so the North American International Auto Show, which added “international” to its name 18 years ago, now seems to be living up to the name change."



"Chinese cars may be on the scene even more quickly from DaimlerChrysler’s Chrysler unit, which recently signed a letter of intent with another auto maker, Chery, which already exports cars to Europe and South America, to build a small car in China for Chrysler to sell in North America.

The chief executive of Chrysler, Thomas W. LaSorda, said the deal, yet to clear both companies’ boards, allows Chrysler a cheaper way into the small-car market.

“We don’t want to put a bunch of capital out here,” Mr. LaSorda said in an interview Monday. “We think we can compete with this.”
DaimlerChrysler’s chief executive, Dieter Zetsche, said the new players would benefit a city used to the status quo. “A different perspective is always good,” Mr. Zetsche said. “Thinking the same old ways prevents you from going better and moving faster.”
