Karma owner Wanxiang to build major new EV plant in China

Karma Revero

Wanxiang Group, the Chinese owner of Karma Automotive, has confirmed plans to build a $375-million plant in China to produce plug-in vehicles.

The plant, which will be built in Wanxiang’s headquarters city of Hangzhou, will be able to produce 50,000 extended-range electric cars a year, according to the company. A spokesman said Wanxiang has yet to decide whether the planned plant will build Karmas or other models for the Chinese market. No timeline has been announced.

Wanxiang Chairman Lu Guanqiu told the Wall Street Journal in April that Karma cars will be launched in the US in the second half of this year – now be built in Southern California – and that if they are well received by the US market, the company will bring Karma to China.

This week the company also revealed the first official images of the rebooted 2017 Karma Revero plug-in hybrid.

      H.Invent: i doubt I am the only one to not be able to make any sense of your comment/ advertisement, but judging from your name, that may be at least in part due to language problems.

      Still, several of your comments make it sound as if you are trying to sell something that runs off of “perpetual motion”… and it raises lots of red flags immediately when you quote a price of $24K for an SUV.

      To be trying to sell ANYTHING that costs thousands of dollars and you don’t have a business address, either… or at least a Web site to show what it is you have… Red flag.

      Anyone trying to sell any very new product to the American market whose first language is not English should be advised to get the help of someone with good English skills, ro help communicate what you are trying to say.

      Even GM or Ford could not sell an SUV for that price, with ultra-new technology that requires tooling and other expenses… Tesla essentially went broke with more than $150 million dollars in startup money, and had to get millions in additional financing to keep going, even though they were selling a tiny sports car with a body supplied by Lotus? And they still had to sell it at more than $100K?

      Any kind of new automobile startup, done well, would cost at least millions of dollars— yet you can’t afford advertising or a web, site?

      You do understand that trying to sell anything through the comments section of an online magazine is like trying to sell the same item by printing ads on a home computer, and stapling the ads to telephone poles around your neighborhood? It is the wrong venue, and an abuse of the online mag’s comments section.

      There are only two possibilities: either you are an entirely incompetent scam artist, or are woefully incapable of understanding the tiniest bit of what you are doing.
