3. Hyundai transforms its Chongqing plant into EV plant

It is reported that in order to revive its declining China business, Hyundai is transforming its factory in Chongqing, China into an electric vehicle factory. Due to the continued sluggish demand in the Chinese market, Hyundai Motor is struggling in the Chinese market.

Hyundai has begun to renovate the production line of the No. 5 plant in Chongqing for the production of electric vehicles and some fuel vehicles. And Hyundai plans to increase the production of electric vehicles. In addition, Hyundai is also making major adjustments to its Beijing plant to increase the production of plug-in hybrid vehicles.

Hyundai will rely on Chongqing No. 5 Plant and Beijing No. 2 Plant to produce new energy vehicles to meet China's Parallel Administrative Measures for Passenger Vehicle Corporate Average Fuel Consumption (CAFC) and New Energy Vehicle (NEV) Credits, known as CAFC+NEV “dual credit” scheme.
