Production Begins At NEVS Facility In Tianjin (China) — Production Capacity Of 50,000 EVs A Year To Begin, Expansion To 220,000 A Year Planned

Production has begun at the new NEVS plug-in electric vehicle manufacturing facility in Tianjin, China, according to recent reports.

Production has begun at the new NEVS plug-in electric vehicle manufacturing facility in Tianjin, China, according to recent reports.

The production facility will initially possess an electric vehicle production capacity of 50,000 units per year, but plans are in the works for a “Phase 2” of the project to increase that number to 220,000 units per year, reportedly.

For those scratching their heads right now, NEVS is the company that essentially bought the Swedish auto manufacturer Saab a while back. The firm has been focused on expanding aggressively into China’s fast-growing plug-in electric vehicle sector since then.

A press release on the news provides more: “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 Chuxing. 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.

“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.”

Building on that, NEVS, DiDi, and GEIDCO (Global Energy Interconnection Corporation) have created a new joint venture dubbed GNEVS (Global New Energy Vehicle Service Company Limited). This joint venture will be focused on infrastructure and services to support on-demand electric vehicle taxi and carsharing services (“Mobility on Demand”) deployment.
