The latest news

1.     Evergrande was in dispute with FF. Jia Yueting tried to kick Evergrande out.

On October 7, Evergrande Health (00708.HK) issued an announcement, stating that Jia Yueting had filed an arbitration with the Hong Kong International Arbitration Center, requesting the deprivation of Evergrande's consent right of financing and terminating all cooperation agreements. The reason was that Evergrande failed to pay $700 million dollar which was mentioned in the supplemental agreement. Evergrande believed that the payment has not met the relevant conditions. At the same time, Evergrande also issued that Jia Yueting manipulated the joint venture company owned by both parties with the right of the majority of the board seats. The dispute between Evergrande and Jia Yueting went public with the cooperation less than 4 months.

Editor: The dispute between Evergrande and FF is pretty normal for Jia Yueting. However, it’s easy to find that Evergrande has been trying to control FF at the very beginning based on the agreement of delivery in time and the name changing from FF China to Evergrande FF. This conflict could be considered as the counterback of Jia Yueting as well. From my point of view, it’s possible that Jia has already found the new boss since he chose to fight Evergrande back at this point.

2.  CHJ launched the brand “LEADING IDEAL”, the first model released on October 18.

On October 10, CHJ Auto launched the intelligent EV brand- Leading Ideal and announced that the first intelligent EV without the limit of cruising range, LEADING IDEAL ONE, would be released on October 18.

Leading Ideal One is more than 5 meters in length and it has two versions of layout: 6-seat and 7-seat. It is also equipped with the Advanced Driver Assistance System of Level 2.5.

Editor: CHJ's brand is still kind of superior, but compared to the brand itself, i care more about its product- Leading Ideal One. As a rare EREV in China, the new model is pretty good at both the performance and the experience of pure electric vehicles. And it solves the users’ range anxiety through range extender at the most extent. In May, Regulations on Investment Management of the Automobile Industry(Draft for comment) issued by National Development and Reform Commission re-divided plug-in hybrid and extended range. EREV has been listed in the pure electric vehicle section. It also means that there will be more and more EREVs in the future.

The manufacturing base in Nanjing will be the keystone of the project and the C601 platform may be a high-end pure electric platform of Changan Automobile, which will provide a solid product foundation for Changan’s new mid-to-high-end brands.
