October 17, 2018

Carlos Alberto de Oliveira Andrade is the founder of CAOA, the largest car manufacturer and dealership in Lain America. On August 5 of this year Boris Feldman host of the Brazilian radio version of Car Talk, interviewed Dr. Carlos. Feldman decided to turn Car Talk into a television show called Car Talk n TV Bandeirantes. Mr. Feldman recalled an interview he did in 2012 with Dr. Carlos.

Dr. Carlos refers to the degree in medicine of the current Chairman of the Board of Directors of CAOA. According to the article, nobody generated as much controversy as Dr. CAOA. Caoa invested heavily in Anápolis as well as importing and selling automobiles. Boris Feldman asked Carlos Alberto de Oliveia Andrade to share his dream. Anápolis is licensed from Hyundai to manufacture HD and HD78 trucks for the Tucson brand. Dr. Carlos wants to build the first fully Brazillian car.

Carlos Alberto de Oliveira Andrade told Boris Feldman they have the design agency in Italy working on creating a new and more modern body for Tuscon. He’s planning to rewrite the history of the Brazilian car industry. Dr. Carlos negotiated with Fiat to create the HD78. Brazil never had a large car dealership. The country failed trying to manufacture JPX jeeps, Puma sports cars, and others. Dr. Carlos planned to learn how Japan turned their car industry around and follow their examples. Korea found success in the auto industry by copying Japan’s success. Korea copied Japan’s auto industry success and made their own Korean cars. Dr. Carlos didn’t copy Korea’s automobile manufacturing based on Japanese cars.

Carlos Alberto Oliveira Andrade bought Chery Motors in Brazil. The whole story began in 1979 when Dr. Carlos founded CAOA. In almost 40 years, Dr. Carlos has become the leader in the Brazilian Auto industry. He owns Ford, Hyundai, and Subaru dealerships. CAOA manufactures Tuscon iX35, Tuscon suvs, HR, and HR80. Dr. Carlos oversees everything from the assembly line, dealership network, distribution, manufacturer, marketing after sales, and spare parts. According to Feldman, Dr. Carlos delivers the best results in the auto industry in the world.
