Volvo and SAIC Electric Bus joint-venture

ZoomVolvo and SAIC Electric Bus joint-venture
Much discussion is being held in relation to the role of China in the EV market. Expectations are high but whether national companies and initiatives can take full advantage of the substantial government support available remains to be seen.
 
One such venture that is hoping to benefit from Beijing's funding is the Volvo and SAIC Electric Bus partnership. The joint venture will develop driveline systems for hybrid and electric buses in Shanghai, pending governmental authorization. A new production facility will manufacture and test the prototypes.
 
SAIC Motor dominate the partnership financially with a 60% ownership share, investing $9.1m of the total $15.2m outlay. Volvo take the remaining 40% share and contribute $6.1m.
 
This is not new territory for the partnership who have been operating the Sunwin Bus company for the past decade in China, delivering a total of 332 new energy buses.
 
Volvo also develop the 7700 Hybrid city bus, offering up to 35 percent fuel savings, 40-50 percent lower exhaust emissions, and the Volvo B5L Hybrid double-decker.
 
For more attend Electric Vehicles Land Sea Air  External Link in June in Stuttgart, Germany. Never before has there been an opportunity in Europe for people in land, water and air electric vehicles and their components, infrastructure and test equipment to compare notes in one event. Delegates already signed up vary from Airbus, Hudson Power Sports and Hudson Yachts to Sony, the Bulgarian Electric Vehicle Association and Robert Bosch Venture Capital.
