VW has entered a joint venture to produce electric cars for China, eg. the VW Golf blue-e-motion.
Volkswagen and partner Shanghai Auto (SAIC) are jointly developing compact electric cars for the Chinese market. The two companies plan to build and sell electric versions of the Golf hatchback and Lavida sedan in China, and are also considering the joint development of hybrids and other “new energy” vehicles for that market.
A report in the Guangzhou Daily said SAIC officials confirmed the two partners are working together on electric compacts for China.
