The US electric car brand, Coda, works with Harbin based Hafei Auto to develop its electric car products. However, with Hafei falling under Chang-an’s control there hasn’t been any new products developed for a number of years and the likelihood of one coming in the short term is also depressingly low. Code turned to Baoding based mover and shaker Great Wall Auto to provide donors for its next range of vehicles.
In an announcement made at the Beijing Auto Show earlier this week the two companies will work together on developing new electric vehicles that will be potentially sold in China as well as the USA. The first cars aren’t due until 2014 but that is expected to be fast forward if Coda want to stay relevant in the US market.
