SAIC to build electrified vehicles in Ningde for southeastern China and Southeast Asia
Automotive News China | 2018/5/1

SAIC Motor Corp. began constructing a plant on April 28 to assemble electrified vehicles in Ningde, a port city in southeastern Chinaí»s Fujian province, for southeastern China and Southeast Asia.

The 5 billion yuan ($794 million) factory is set to start production sometime in 2019, SAIC said.

EVs and plug-in hybrids to be produced at the plant will use batteries supplied by Contemporary Amperex Technology, a major domestic battery maker located in Ningde. 

SAIC didní»t disclose additional details about the plant. 

The Ningde factory will become SAICí»s fourth manufacturing site in China, following plants in Shanghai, Nanjing and Zhengzhou. 

SAIC also operates two assembly plants in Thailand that make gasoline, right-hand-drive vehicles for MG.

SAIC, a state-owned company based in Shanghai, produces passenger vehicles under the Rowe and MG brands. 

In the first quarter of this year, combined deliveries at the Roewe and MG brands jumped 54 percent to 187,902 behind demand for crossovers. 

In 2017, SAICí»s two brands delivered 534,187 vehicles, a surge of 62 percent from 2016. The tally includes roughly 64,000 EV and plug-in hybrid sales, which soared 156 percent from a year earlier.

SAIC also operates light vehicle joint ventures with General Motors and the Volkswagen Group.
