In the past year, BYTON has made progress from the concept car to the mass production car, and also acquired FAW Huali to solve the production qualification problem, and its Nanjing plant has been basically completed. Although BYTON is slightly behind in the release and delivery of production cars, it is still steadily improving. For more information on BYTON and its first model, we will continue to focus on it.

The 4,000th SITECH DEV1 goes offline and the production target has been completed.

At the same time in terms of design, space, power and intelligent networking, as an A00 pure electric vehicle, SITECH is quite competitive compared to the models of the same class.

JMC leases ALWAYS’s factory. Cooperation on the way.

Recently, the Jiangxi Development and Reform Commission issued a ratification for the approval of the annual production of 100,000 pure electric passenger vehicles by Shangrao Branch of Jiangling Holdings Co., Ltd., and plans to lease the land from Jiangxi Yiwei for construction projects with a total investment of 1,400,380,000 yuan. IIA found that the project was to renovate the existing plant, and the address coincides with the factory that ALWAYS has built. Judging from the news: JMC's leased and renovated factory is the self-built factory of ALWAYS, and the approval of this project also indicates that ALWAYS U5 is expected to be manufactured by JMC.

Editor: For new auto manufacturers, production qualification must be obtained. The companies that have already delivered have chosen two paths for OEM or acquisition. Combining the previous cooperation cases between LIFAN and CHJ, it’s expected to see the future cooperation between JMC and ALWAYS.
