15. Skoda Felicia
If you think the Yugo was the first communist car they ever sold in the USA, think again. Back in 1959, the Czechoslovakian Skoda offered its compact Felicia model to U.S. buyers. For the late 50s, it was brave for a communist company to try to sell anything in America, but Skoda was brave enough to try.
The Felicia was a solid and competent car by European standards but tiny and underpowered by American. With almost no dealer network, high prices due to export fees, and no marketing, the Felicia was doomed right from the start.
