VW recently signed a deal with Chinese automaker Anhui Jianghuai Automobile in order to produce more Volkswagen electric cars that will be made available internationally. At the moment VW only has the e-Golf, an electric hatchback version of its Golf model.
Anhui Jianghuai isn’t popular outside of China, but it has met great success this year between its two brands, Jianghuai and Ankai, selling 333,639 units in the first six months of the year. China is pressuring its automakers to produce more electric and low-emission cars because of high pollution rates.
VW has recently indicated that it is going to move more toward battery-powered cars, saying that the VW group, including brands Porsche and Audi in addition to Volkswagen, plans to introduce 30 fully electric cars in the next ten years.
China also hopes to become an electric car leader, and both VW and Anhui Jianghuai agree their partnership will be mutually beneficial in helping them develop more electric and low-emission vehicles, reducing impact on the environment, and supporting Chinese society.
The chairman of Anhui Jianghuai says their company wants to focus on developing vehicles that are both ecofriendly and cost effective and eventually wants to transform the Chinese auto industry.
