According to Visionary Vehicles' spokeswoman Wendi "Oh Lord, Take Me Downtown, I'm Just Looking for Some" Tush, the Chery vehicles they're importing from China won't be branded as such in the US due to pressure from GM, who claim the word's too similar to "Chevy." "They're bigger than we are and they have more lawyers than we do," she explains. "It's all about keeping value to the consumer." That and not getting the dingleberries sued outta Bricklin's tush, we suspect.
