NEVS Tianjin Project Kicks off Production
The installed annual product capacity is 50,000 electric vehicles in Phase I of the Project, and 220,000 is the plan for phase II.
NEVS are working with 3 generations of EVs with innovation and development centers in both China and Sweden. The second and third generation will be developed in close co-operation with DiDi.
As the automobile industry is quickly changing, not only from conventional cars to EVs, but also into vehicles without a driver and serving new business models where our customers want to use the car but not own it.
NEVS Chairman Kai Johan Jiang has been the architect behind the new partnership with DiDi and Global Energy Interconnection that gradually grows into the world’s biggest NEV service platform and functions to promote changes in green mobility pattern.
As the world’s leading one-stop diversified mobility platform, DiDi predicts there will be 1 million electric cars running on its platform by 2020. As a major partner, NEVS will provide DiDi with cost-effective high-end EVs. Meanwhile, NEVS and DiDi will carry out in-depth technological cooperation on Autonomous Driving.
Furthermore, DiDi, GEICO (Global Energy Interconnectivity Corporation) and NEVS have initiated a Joint Venture called GNEVS (Global New Energy Vehicle Service Company) who will provide services and infrastructure to the increasing Mobility on Demand Electric Vehicles.
This structure will facilitate the infrastructure and service for our EV customers and provide customer value to the mobility on demand Providers and Users, as well as for the city planners.
