The source situation is poor, the information comes for the moment only from a Chinese medium. If so, what finte.hk The production start of the NEVS 9-3 EV in Tianjin took place yesterday. A historic day for NEVS. After almost exactly 7 years runs the first own electric car on Saab basis of the tape.
Production start at 29.06 in Tianjin
An official press release from NEVS or the Evergrande group is missing so far, but it could follow on Monday. In response to the occasion, the management of NEVS, Koenigsegg, Protean Electric, and other companies of the emerging Evergrande News Energy Automotive Group was gathered on-site. The message, and that's what staging is all about, is pretty clear. A new provider of sustainable mobility is showing its muscles.
Just a few days ago, another Chinese website reported the Tianjin facility as clear for production. The news from China was in a certain contradiction to what one could hear from Trollhättan over the past few weeks. Much there indicated a later start of production. But speed is everything in China, patience less.
An interesting detail in passing: The work is mentioned in the Chinese press release as Evergrande Tianjin production base, the name NEVS itself only occurs in connection with the 9-3 electric car. This shows the weighting for the future. NEVS is, if at all, just one brand within the group. For the moment at least, and in the field of brand names, the future could be exciting.
The message from China speaks of Evergrande's entry into mass production. This is quite high, because for the start of the 9-3 is expected only with smaller numbers. Successful Chinese startups such as NIO or Xpeng still produce their much more modern electric cars monthly in the lower 4-digit range and increase only slowly.
