SAIC Motor announces possible partnership with Audi for EV development24. August 2023
Chinese carmaker SAIC Motor announced at the end of June that it could partner with Audi on electric vehicles. Zu Sijie, vice president and chief engineer at SAIC Motor, said: “Licensing, joint development and other ventures are possible ways of cooperation in the future. Vehicles and components must be awarded a CCC certificate so that the products can be exported to China or be distributed on the Chinese market.
The Chinese automotive market is undergoing unprecedented changes. We will deepen strategic cooperation to ensure a win-win situation.” Zu said SAIC Motor and Audi have been strategic partners for some time and both sides agreed to accelerate the development of EVs through joint cooperation. Shanghai-based SAIC Motors recently unveiled a three-year plan to boost annual sales of alternative-drive vehicles to 3.5 million units by 2025. This would be equivalent to two and a half times the number of vehicles sold in 2022.
