VW and Anhui Jianghuai aim for EV joint development

Volkswagen AG and Anhui Jianghuai Automobile Co., Ltd. (JAC) yesterday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in Wolfsburg to define the next phase of negotiations between the two companies in order to achieve long-term cooperation in the joint development of all-electric vehicles in China.

“As we aim to be at the forefront of e-mobility, Volkswagen Group is looking forward to explore all options to set up a close and mutually beneficial partnership with JAC. We believe this cooperation would not only benefit our two organizations, but would also be of great value to our customers, a sound environment and the Chinese society in general,” said Matthias Müller, chairman of the board of management of Volkswagen AG.

According to the MoU the parties intend to enter into discussions to evaluate the perspectives and feasibility of a new joint venture company (“JV”), focusing on new energy vehicles (NEV), to carry out full scope cooperation in areas including research and development, manufacture, sales and mobility services in the field of NEV and parts in order to improve fuel efficiency. The top priority will be to develop zero-emission mobility solutions.

Commenting on the agreement, Mr. An Jin, chairman of the Anhui Jianghuai Automobile Co., Ltd, said, “We look forward to a full scope cooperation together with Volkswagen Group, focus on new energy vehicles, to provide Chinese consumers with highly cost-effective battery-powered electric vehicle (BEV) products that promote the development of the Chinese new energy vehicle sector as well as the Chinese auto industry’s transformation and upgrading. The intended cooperation between JAC and Volkswagen Group can be called a ‘Creating Together’ model, which embodies mutual benefit and a win-win situation. We hope to develop this cooperation into a brand new business model during the process of Chinese auto industry’s opening up.”

As part of its comprehensive new Group Strategy “Together – Strategy 2025” Volkswagen is also intensifying efforts for sustainable mobility worldwide. The Group will be launching a broad-based initiative for electro-mobility and intends to develop more than 30 new, purely battery-powered electric vehicles (BEVs) over the next ten years.
