The company has so far received nearly 10,000 orders for its QQ3 car in the southeast Asian country this year, according to the spokesman.

The automaker based in East China's Anhui province began exporting its cars 10 years ago and has speeded up construction of overseas production bases and sales networks in recent years.

The company has established 16 plants, including four under construction, in 15 countries and regions by the end of 2010.

In 2010, Chery Auto exported about 100,000 cars. By mid-April this year, the company had exported a total of 500,000 cars, figures from the company show.
