[YesAuto News] If you have or will have new energy vehicle indicators, but you are not satisfied with the many models on the market, then congratulations, you are about to have a large wave of new brand models coming to you. They may have a cool appearance, or they may be economical, or particularly smart… But before they meet you, as a new brand, they still face a big problem: through the National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, they have to obtain a “birth permit”, only to cross these thresholds to close the company. Only to give birth (make) a baby (car).
If you want to build a car, the first pass is the approval of the National Development and Reform Commission. In March 2016, after BAIC New Energy's first plant was approved for construction, the National Development and Reform Commission approved a total of 15 new pure electric passenger vehicles. project. However, after the approval of the Volkswagen Jianghuai project in June 2017, the project approval was suddenly suspended, and the companies hovering outside were suffering. The reason is that the excessively fast pace of approval has laid the hidden danger of overcapacity for the development of new energy vehicles, and it is also not conducive to the identification of high-quality enterprises. Therefore, it will slow down the speed of approval and raise the barriers to entry. So how reliable are the 15 car companies that have passed the approval of the National Development and Reform Commission? In other words, can they buy these cars in the future? Let's take a look at it from the product, capital and other levels.
|Overview of 15 new car-making forces|

The first thing to understand is what qualifications are?
Like many high-demand industries, you must have a “certificate” to get a job. In the field of new energy vehicles, you need to obtain a new energy vehicle production qualification. Depending on the company's background, there are two main types of qualifications: First, companies that already have traditional car production qualifications, such as BYD and SAIC, can build electric vehicles with an additional qualification for new energy access.
The second is that, like the 15 companies mentioned above, they do not have the qualifications for automobile production and apply for everything from scratch. Companies such as BAIC New Energy and Chery New Energy, which were born out of traditional automakers, used the qualifications of the parent company to manufacture vehicles at the beginning. Only when they have obtained the qualifications can they produce and sell independently.
It is basically impossible to obtain the production qualification of traditional cars. As early as 2004, the “Automotive Industry Development Policy” put forward “strict access” requirements for traditional cars. At the end of 2016, the State Council officially issued the “Notice of the State Council on Issuing the Catalogue of Investment Projects Approved by the Government (2016 Edition)”, reiterating ” In principle, the requirement of establishing a new traditional fuel vehicle production enterprise will no longer be approved. But on the other hand, as a national “turning/lane-changing overtaking” project, in order to further activate the market and achieve the surpassing of the auto industry, the state has liberalized the new qualification application in the field of pure electric passenger vehicles, hoping to be able to open the market in the market. Into a few ferocious “catfish” to activate the entire “fish school”, this also gives a lot of enterprises and local governments that want to work in the automotive field see hope.
The authorities responsible for the introduction of “catfish” are the National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. Here, it is necessary to “knock the blackboard” to draw the key points: in previous reports, many media said that the above-mentioned 15 companies have obtained qualifications is incorrect. The acquisition of new energy vehicle production qualification requires dual certification from the National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. To put it simply, in the process of obtaining new energy qualifications, these two departments are each responsible for one thing: whether the Development and Reform Commission has the qualifications and conditions to build factories and make products, and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology manages whether the products meet the requirements and can be sold on the market. If both are passed, then congratulations on obtaining your “birth permit” to give birth and build a car. At present, only 6 companies such as BAIC New Energy, Yundu New Energy, Jiangling New Energy, Zhidou, Yangtze River Automobile and Qiantu Automobile have passed the dual certification and have officially obtained the qualifications.
These car companies have successfully built cars
As companies that have worked hard in the new energy vehicle market for many years, BAIC New Energy, Zhidou, Jiangling New Energy, and Chery New Energy are considered to have made small achievements in the industry. For these companies, it can be regarded as a success in building cars. Although Chery New Energy has not yet obtained complete qualifications in a fundamental sense, it can temporarily borrow the qualifications of its parent company for production and sales, and it can be placed in the first camp for the time being. The independent operation of the new energy business is like a son who has to leave his parents' home to live alone when he grows up, laying the foundation for an independent portal to marry a wife and have children in the future.
|Overview of the four new car companies in the field of new energy vehicles|
|enterprise||Established||Time to obtain independent qualification||Representative products|
|BAIC New Energy||Year 2009||May 2016||EU series, EV series|
|Know beans||2012||December 2017||D1, D2, D3|
|Jiangling New Energy||2015||September 2017||E100, E200, E160|
|Chery New Energy||year 2010||Temporarily use the qualifications of the parent company||eQ, Arrizo 5e|
Judging from the 2017 data, the above-mentioned four car companies are all in the TOP10 list of new energy passenger vehicle sales. Among them, BAIC New Energy ranked second after BYD with a sales volume of over 100,000. Zhidou, Chery and Jiangling ranked fourth, sixth and seventh respectively. According to this year's plan, these four companies have launched 2-9 models.
One step away from heaven and earth
If the above-mentioned car companies have successfully built cars, then the next wave is close to success. As a new force in car-making, whether it is Yundu, Yangtze River or Future, they have properly obtained the “birth permit.” Although Jianghuai Volkswagen has not really obtained the “pass” key from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, with the support of the two governments, can the qualification that came before it be far behind?
Yundu: The first new car company to obtain qualifications
Among the new brands, Yundu New Energy is the first new car company to obtain qualifications in the true sense. Since October 2017, it has successively launched two models of π1 and π3. It stands to reason that Yundu New Energy, which has left-hand qualifications and right-handed products, can be placed in the first camp, and it can be regarded as a successful car building. But in a strict sense, whether a car company can truly achieve success in car manufacturing still needs to be verified by the market.
According to Yundu's official data, from the launch of π1 on October 11, 2017 to the end of last year, 2,400 vehicles were sold in less than three months. However, this data does not indicate whether it is for public or private. The specific market performance still needs more Observed. At the capital level, I don’t know if it’s because of the Fujian Automobile Industry Group, Putian State Investment, which is equivalent to the Putian Municipal Government, and the three mountains of Fujian state-owned Haiyuan Machinery. The cloud is quiet and unlike a new car company. It was only announced at the end of 2017 that it would start financing, but the specific progress has not yet been announced.
In addition to the two models already on the market, Yundu New Energy plans to launch a compact SUV and a medium and large SUV in 2019 and 2020, respectively. Anyone who knows Yundu New Energy knows that at the beginning of its establishment in 2015, it set the positioning of pure electric SUV models. This opened up a unique path in the market at the time. However, in recent years, whether it is traditional car companies SAIC, Baojun, Zotye, or new car powers Weilai, Chehejia, and Xiaopeng Motors, all have launched or will launch SUV models in the field of new energy vehicles. Who can withstand the pressure in the future It's hard to say that it is outstanding.
But new car companies have new ways to play. On the occasion of the official launch of Yundu π3, Yundu announced a three-year half-price repurchase plan. This is undoubtedly a big stimulus for the new energy used car market, which is in the status quo of incomplete residual value evaluation standards and lack of circulation channels, and may also give it a boost. Consumers have certain purchase incentives. No matter how bad it is, it is an attempt, and it is also a good thing for the new energy vehicle industry that has not yet fully become a climate.
Yangtze River: Counterattack from the “Blacklist”
Unlike Yundu, Changjiang Motor's predecessor, Hangzhou Changjiang Bus Co., Ltd., was once included in the blacklist of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology due to abnormal operations. It was because of the timely arrival of capital that it was able to “turn over.” The company that is stationed in the capital is Hong Kong Wulong Electric Vehicle (Group) Co., Ltd., which Li Ka-shing holds shares, because the outside world once called it “Li Ka-shing's Yangtze River Automobile.” But in fact, Li Ka-shing began to purchase Sinopoly Battery in 2010 (later renamed “Five Dragon Electric Vehicles”), and reduced its holdings all the way to April 2017 when it only accounted for 4.93%. To put it bluntly, Li Ka-shing only holds a small amount of shares in the parent company of Yangtze River Automobile, and “Li Ka-shing's Yangtze River Automobile” is just a concept or a gimmick.
Yangtze River Automobile is the first car company to enter the passenger vehicle field from commercial to cross-category, and successfully obtain the qualification for new electric passenger vehicles. As early as 2016, Yangtze River Motor's first pure electric SUV, Yiku, was launched. It was planned to be launched in 2017. However, due to the completion of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology's declaration work in January this year, the time to market the product was delayed. It is expected that this year's Yangtze River pure electric passenger vehicles will officially enter the market to be tested. In the future, Yangtze River Automobile will also launch medium and large passenger cars, large passenger cars, and large SUVs. Basically, a new passenger car model will be launched in one to two years.
The new brand means that there is no well-known, Yangtze River Automobile chose to start from the major customer market. In February this year, Yangtze River Automobile and Shaoxing Yihong Automobile Service Co., Ltd. signed a strategic cooperation agreement in Hangzhou. According to the agreement, Shaoxing Yihong Automobile intends to purchase 15,000 pure electric vehicles from Yangtze River Automobile in the next three years as operating vehicles for its online-hailing platform. The first batch of products will be delivered and put into the online car-hailing market in 2018. Previously, in September 2017, Yangtze Motor successfully entered the U.S. market with its V8070 electric logistics vehicle. This cooperation with Shaoxing Yihong is the result of Yangtze Motor's copying of its successful experience in the field of electric commercial vehicles to the field of online car-hailing. try. As for private consumption, Yangtze Motor has not seen any major moves yet.
Future: Can “Bold” have a future?
Compared with Yundu and Yangtze River, Qiantu Motor's qualifications are even hotter. On April 4, 2018, Qiantu Automobile had just passed the announcement of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and became the sixth domestic auto company to officially obtain the newly-built qualification. Established in 2015, Qiantu Motors chose a route similar to Tesla, starting from the high-end approach to establish an image, and later launching more popular products, taking the lead in launching pure electric supercars among all domestic new car forces. At present, Qiantu Motor's first pure electric sports car K50 has completed all the development of the whole vehicle and entered the trial production stage, and then it can be launched on the market.
Although it was established late, Beijing Great Wall Huaguan Automobile Technology Co., Ltd. (“Great Wall Huaguan”), the parent company of Qiantu Motor, has been involved in the field of electric vehicles since 2007. This independent car design company and vehicle development solution provider with a certain reputation in the car industry has designed Geely Panda for Geely Automobile, designed Cheetah CS7 for Leopard Automobile, and built pure electric vehicle products for Saab Automobile of Sweden. Wait. Starting with high-end models this time, or Great Wall Huaguan hopes to show its strength to the outside world, so that more car companies can buy more of its subsequent model solutions.
Far away, from the perspective of the future auto company itself, choosing a top-down entry point is still a bit risky. From the perspective of the development history of China's independent brands, whether it is Great Wall, Geely or Changan, the successful experience is similar. They all choose to start with a low-priced, stable quality product occupying the market segment, and then gradually attack the mid-to-high-end market. . Therefore, without the brand endorsement, it is still a bit bold to start directly with high-end sports cars.
JAC Volkswagen: The first model is very JAC but not Volkswagen
Amidst the thousands of calls, the suspected first child of JAC Volkswagen appeared. On April 4, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology released the third batch of recommended catalogs for new energy vehicles. A “Sihao brand” pure electric model was put under the name of Jianghuai Automobile Group. Considering that the JAC Volkswagen project is promoted by the SEAT brand, Sihao's pronunciation and car logo are similar to SEAT. The industry generally believes that this car is a new car from JAC Volkswagen. Prior to this, JAC Volkswagen also stated that the main focus of the future will be economic pure electric passenger vehicles. The first pure electric passenger car will be launched in 2018. The new car will not adopt the Volkswagen LOGO and platform but will be produced on JAC’s existing platform. Incorporate popular technology.
From the product information point of view, this car is very similar to JAC iEV7S, but only incorporates SEAT elements in details such as the trapezoidal grille and triangular headlights, and the battery life has also increased from 280km to 300km. In terms of price, refer to the price of 119,500 yuan after the subsidy of iEV7S. I want to know that with the blessing of the public, the price of “Sihao” will not be lower than that of iEV7S. Compared with BAIC New Energy EX360, BYD Yuan EV, and the higher endurance Tiggo 3xe, which all maintain the price of around 100,000 yuan, the market prospect of “Sihao” is also worrying.
|List of basic parameters of Sihao and JAC iEV7S|
|Si Hao||JAC iEV7S|
|Curb weight (kg)||1460||1460|
|Maximum speed (km/h)||130||130|
|Motor power (kW)||85||85|
As a product of “double points”, in order to alleviate the pressure of public points, JAC Volkswagen has been urged to marry and give birth. Due to tight time and heavy tasks, “new cars” are mostly built with old technologies and platforms. It is difficult to produce products that users love under such a routine. In addition, Heizmann, President of Volkswagen China, has made it clear that both SAIC and FAW will introduce the MEB platform (Volkswagen’s main pure electric vehicle production platform), but there is no plan to introduce the MEB platform into JAC. Such JAC Volkswagen may be more JAC genes in the future. .
The road to car building has been halfway, but the road ahead is still long
Strictly speaking, none of the following car companies have the qualifications to produce and sell new energy vehicles, but these three have successively released models. It can be said that more than half of the road has been built, but from prototype to mass production release /Market recognition, its difficulty is never lower than the qualification application.
Hezhong: From “Tsinghua Department” to constant changes in capital
During the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show, Hezhong New Energy Automobile was approved by the National Development and Reform Commission. This car company that did not participate in the auto show snatched the headlines of the major auto sectors that day. For a while, everyone was asking who is “Hezhong”? Fang Yunzhou, the founder of Hezhong New Energy, was formerly the deputy general manager of Chery New Energy Technology Co., and later studied as a postdoctoral fellow at Tsinghua University, under the tutelage of Professor Ouyang Minggao of the Department of Automotive Engineering of Tsinghua University.
In addition to the establishment of a knowledge system, Tsinghua also brought contacts to Fang Yunzhou. Two of the five investors when Hezhong New Energy was established were related to Tsinghua. Just as many new energy vehicle projects are inseparable from local government support, the Tongxiang Zhonghe New Energy Automobile Industry Investment Partnership, which has the largest share of investment by Hezhong New Energy, is backed by the Zhejiang Tongxiang Municipal Government. After obtaining approval from the Development and Reform Commission, Hezhong New Energy's major shareholder quietly changed, and the legal representative also changed from the founder Fang Yunzhou to the chairman of Huaxia Fortune Wang Wenxue.
The arrival of China Fortune Land has not only given the support of Hezhong New Energy Capital, but also brought a new way of propaganda. Its brand-new brand “Nezha” for the private market will serve as the official strategic partner of Hebei China Fortune Football Club and the only designated car to participate in the 2018 annual schedule of China Fortune Football Club. It is expected that there will be product launches under the “Nezha” brand in 2019.
Up to now, Hezhong New Energy has successively launched two concept models: Hezhong E-TAKE and EP11. The first mass-produced model, codenamed EP10B, has also officially rolled off the line at the end of last year and is currently undergoing road testing. The car is mainly positioned for public travel at the B end and is expected to be officially released in the third quarter of this year. Previously, Hezhong’s new energy product plan mentioned the code-named EP10 model, which is a miniature electric vehicle with a cruising range of 160-250 kilometers. It is expected that the EP10B may be born here.
In the best era of the great development of new energy vehicles, entrants are also facing the worst-the capital of all forces has entered, and the competition is extremely fierce. In addition to the financial support of the big benefactor Huaxia Fortune, the Hezhong New Energy in it has not yet shown a clear corporate layout and core competitiveness. It seems that the future of Hezhong New Energy is still not clear.
National Energy: Announcement of Large Orders Without Qualification
Guoneng New Energy is a subsidiary of National Electric Vehicle Sweden Co., Ltd. (NEVS). It was approved by the National Development and Reform Commission in January 2017. In December of the same year, NEVS's first 9-3 pure electric vehicle based on the original Saab Phoenix platform rolled off the production line. After NEVS purchased the relevant assets of the bankrupt Swedish Saab automobile in 2012, after several resumption of production, suspension of production, bankruptcy protection, reorganization, and out of reorganization, it officially entered a new development stage of mass production of new energy vehicles.
According to the plan, the NEVS9-3 pure electric vehicle will be launched around August 2018, and will be mainly supplied to major customer Didi Chuxing in the early stage. On the day of the launching ceremony of the first car, TNB, Didi Chuxing and the Global Energy Internet Organization jointly established a “Global New Energy Vehicle Service Company”, and TNB became a small partner of Didi Chuxing. Of course, the prerequisite for all this is that National Energy needs to pass the approval of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology to truly obtain the new qualifications.
As early as the end of 2015, before obtaining the approval of the Development and Reform Commission, Guoneng New Energy won a huge order of 78 billion yuan with Panda New Energy Co., Ltd., and Guoneng New Energy will provide 150,000 vehicles to Panda New Energy by 2020. Classic 9-3 version electric vehicles and 100,000 other models of electric vehicle products and services. This may be the first car company to announce that it has won a large order without obtaining the qualifications, but there has been no follow-up news of the cooperation so far. If the above orders can be realized, it means that National Energy not only has to solve the qualification problem, but also carefully consider whether the production capacity can be met.
Jinkang: It's also a buyer
Speaking of Jinkang New Energy, you may be a little unfamiliar, but when it comes to its parent company Xiaokang, you may be able to immediately make up for the down-to-earth image of the micro-face manned goods. The name Jinkang sounds simple, but it and its parent company Xiaokang are doing very high-level things. They invested in the establishment of a new company, SF MOTORS, in the United States to build high-end smart electric vehicles.
What if there is no foundation? buy! SF Motors, the main body of Jinkang’s business in the United States, first acquired the American battery system company InEVit. The company’s boss was Tesla’s co-founder and first CEO Martin Eberhard. After the acquisition, Martin Eberhard Berhard himself and his team all joined SF MOTORS. Subsequently, SF Motors also acquired a factory of AM General in Indiana, as the future production base in the United States, the factory has OEM production of Hummer H2 and Mercedes-Benz R-Class.
This layout of Xiaokang shares points to Tesla and is not a whim. As a domestic auto company focusing on the commercial vehicle market, Xiaokang has always wanted to build mid-to-high-end new energy smart passenger vehicles. It is reported that Jinkang New Energy will also focus on mid-to-high-end brands in domestic new energy projects. The first Jinkang electric vehicle is expected to be launched next year.
After Chinese companies have gradually become rich, they are also slowly seeking to stand up. Of course, this is not only an increase in sales, but also technology and quality. Jinkang New Energy has the funds and accumulation of well-off shares. It shouldn't be a big problem if you want to follow the road of Zhidou and Jiangling to build cars. However, choosing a mid-to-high-end brand will face many challenges, but if you can break through, you may be able to do something else. world.
These car companies do not seem to be reliable at present
If the above car companies' roads are considered reliable, then the following companies need to work hard and work harder. Up to now, Jiangsu Min'an, Henan Suda, and Lu Zhizhou have not seen detailed information about actual vehicles in the field of new energy passenger vehicles. Although Wanxiang Group has made a series of actions, with the death of the head of Lu Guanqiu, everything has fallen into unknown.
Wanxiang: Lu Guanqiu's 48-year car dream
The name “Wanxiang Series” does not seem to be very loud in the outside world, and most people who know it only know its label of “China's largest auto parts”, but in fact, Wanxiang Group has established a company that includes automobiles, new energy, The huge empire in agriculture, real estate, and finance has a total revenue of more than 100 billion yuan, but Lu Guanqiu, the man behind this empire, has always had an unrealized dream of “building a car.” For this reason, he once said a sentence similar to Yugong Yishan: “My generation cannot succeed, my son will continue; my son cannot succeed, my grandson will continue.”
As early as 1999, Wanxiang Group quietly established an electric vehicle project team and set a development route of “battery-motor-electronic control-electric vehicles”. In 2002, Wanxiang Electric Vehicle Company was established. In 2004, the Y9 electric bus developed by Wanxiang was successfully put into trial operation along the West Lake in Hangzhou. In 2012, Wanxiang spent US$256.6 million to acquire all the assets of A123, the largest power battery manufacturer in the United States, except for government and military businesses. In 2014, Wanxiang purchased Fisker, a luxury electric car manufacturer in the United States, for US$149.2 million, and renamed it Karma on September 30, 2015. Wanxiang finally has vehicle production capacity.
On September 8, 2016, the first luxury range-extended hybrid vehicle Revero of Karma Motors, a subsidiary of Wanxiang Group, was officially unveiled in the United States. According to Wanxiang's plan, the extended range version of Revero will be launched in the United States first, followed by the smaller Atlantic. In 2018, it is planned to launch a new platform. The new platform is planned to start production in Xiaoshan, Hangzhou, China. The pure electric version and the extended range version of Revero, as well as the pure electric version and extended range version of Atalantic will be launched successively. In 2019, another Sation wagon, a medium and large SUV, a small SUV and a convertible will be launched.
However, until now, there is no news about Revero's introduction of domestic plans. At the same time, since December 2016, when it was approved by the National Development and Reform Commission, Wanxiang has had little news in the field of new energy. On October 25, 2017, Lu Guanqiu, the helm of Wanxiang Group, passed away. From entering the industry in 1969 to the end of his life, Lu Guanqiu, who has always dealt with the automotive field, has been dreaming of a complete vehicle for 48 years but has never fully realized.
The person who once said, “I will use every penny earned by Wanxiang to make electric cars. I will burn a lot of money until it succeeds. Or Wanxiang collapses.” empire. It is reported that Lu Weiding, the son of Lu Guanqiu who accepted Wanxiang Group, is different from his father who started in the industry. He is more committed to building the “Wanxiang Group” into a financial control group. In this way, it seems that Wanxiang's car dream seems to be different. It's a little farther away.
Min'an: High-level actions frequently or need to exert force
When Min'an was approved for the project in November 2016, it was once regarded as a dark horse in the industry. Because it was too low-key before, I don't know that it also has a lot of background.
Jiangsu Min'an Electric Vehicle Co., Ltd. is a joint venture established by Hong Kong Zhantu (China) Investment Co., Ltd. and Jiangsu Huai'an Development Holdings Co., Ltd. Hong Kong Zhantu (China) Investment Co., Ltd. was invested and established by Minth Group, a world-renowned supplier of automotive interior seals. Yes, it is the same as Wanxiang, it is also a spare parts company that wants to build cars.
Judging from the information published on the official website, Min'an has planned new energy SUVs, sports cars and other models, and will launch a concept car product by the end of this year, and the mass-produced model will be unveiled next year. However, as of now, Min'an electric supercar D02 and electric SUV E01 have only been shown once in Nanjing in November 2017, and the detailed information of the models has not been disclosed, and the specific research and development progress is still unknown. The good news is that recent news has pointed out that Min'an Auto has frequently acted at the level of corporate executives. It has successively introduced many executives from FAW, Audi and other auto companies, or it is about to make efforts in the automotive field.
Speed: The most controversial one
Among these 15 car companies, Suda is the most controversial. It was once reported as a “zombie car company” by the media. The industry’s management of this company was caused by negative content such as delayed production of products and barren construction sites. The status quo is worried. After being approved by the National Development and Reform Commission in 2017, Suda attracted a lot of doubts. Since then, it has gradually faded out of people's vision. Only the official website has scattered some information, but most of it has nothing to do with car building.
According to the official website of Henan Suda, Henan Electric Vehicle Technology Co., Ltd. was established in September 2010. The official stated that it has developed and produced two pure electric sedan and hatchback products, both of which are small pure electric models. The two products will be launched in 2018. Simultaneously on the market, Suda will also officially launch investment promotion. The new product has a top speed of 150Km/h, a cruising range of more than 300 kilometers, and the price will be less than 100,000 after the subsidy. But as of now, Suda has not released a real car.
Land ship: low-speed electric vehicles turn positive
If Suda makes low-speed electric vehicle companies see hope, then Lu Zhizhou is the deity of hope. Lu Zhizhou is the latest case of the first low-speed electric vehicle and new energy bus company to cross the boundary. Although the previously mentioned Zhidou electric vehicles also involved low-speed electric vehicles, they quickly moved to the development and production of new energy passenger vehicles in a very short period of time.
With the 14th license plate being “taken into the arms” by Lu Zhouzhou, some insiders speculated whether it means that the channel for low-speed electric vehicle companies has been opened. In fact, since the beginning of 2017, Lu Zhouzhou has rarely produced vehicles in the field of low-speed electric vehicles, but has shifted its focus to new energy buses and new energy logistics vehicles.
After getting the approval of the National Development and Reform Commission, Lu Zhouzhou is still active in people's careers, but most of the announcements are about new energy logistics vehicles. Regarding the first new energy passenger model, Lu Zhizhou has not yet demonstrated in real vehicles. According to its plan, the first passenger car will be positioned similar to the performance of the traditional car 2.0. The acceleration of 100 kilometers will be around 3-6s. It will be launched at about the end of 2018. Hatchbacks, sedans, and crossover models and SUVs will be launched in the future. Wait.
Full text summary
What’s interesting is that, unlike the capital market, none of the 15 companies that have been approved by the National Development and Reform Commission are new car companies starting from scratch. This also reflects the industry’s cautious attitude towards these companies, and companies also need to be careful. Research results can be harder.
However, the qualifications did not stop these new car companies from entering the market. Whether it is Weilai, Xiaopeng or Dianjia, many brands have chosen the “self-built factory + OEM” model, and advanced while applying for the “birth permit”. To seize the opportunity in the market.
