Distribution will be managed by the Dutch distribution company AutoBinck, with which Qoros has signed its first European importer agreement for the Slovak market, the SITA newswire wrote based on information revealed by AutoBinck Group Sk.

“This is a very interesting period for Qoros and although sales volume is not our primary objective, Slovakia is one of the prime markets in Europe for sedans,” Cristiano Carlutti, director of Sales & Marketing for Europe and the Middle East, who leads the introduction of Qoros in Slovakia, said, as cited on the carmaker’s website. “What we have learned in Slovakia will be very useful once we start to increase our presence in central and western Europe and when more models become available, as well as a new generation of highly efficient engines.”

Qoros Auto was founded in 2007. It is a 50/50 joint venture between Chery Automobile and Israel Corporation.
