VW SAIC’s Anting factory in Shanghai, China, will become fully operational next year.
The ID.4 will enter production in China a year from now as the market’s first MEB-based model.
Apart from FCVs, the three partners will also work together on hybrid and battery-electric vehicles, as well as connectivity solutions.
The Hongqi S9 and E115 are concept vehicles for now but both preview production models.
Based on the Seat Ateca, the Jetta VS5 is the first product of the new entry-level brand.
VW’s new SUV coupes for China are based on the Tayron and Teramont sport utility vehicles.
The VW SMV Concept previews a production model that will look exactly like this.
The Q2 E-Tron is Audi’s smallest electric SUV, and the LWB “L” variant will be sold exclusively in China.
If the Jetta VS5 looks familiar to you, it’s because the SUV is a rebadged Seat Ateca.
The new Jetta entry-level brand will launch with a sedan and two SUV models.
The new models increase VW’s SUV range in China to six models; at least six more are to come by 2020.
Not enough to beat the BMW 5 Series Li and Mercedes E-Class L at this game, though.
