19 dealers have already signed up, with a plan to enter the top 80 U.S. markets

The Chinese carmaker Zotye has announced its plan to sell vehicles in the United States before the end of next year. Automotive News reports 19 existing dealers around the country will take up Zotye stock to distribute. Given market trends, it's not a surprise Zotye will begin sales with an SUV — there are several in its current portfolio. China-based carmakers have been announcing their United States plans recently, including Qiantu Motors' recent claim that it will also manufacture cars in California.

The future Zotye dealers currently sell various brands, ranging from Volvos to Hyundais and Subarus, Buick-GMC and Ford-Lincoln.
