China has on Wednesday awarded its seventh electric vehicle production license to a unit of Jiangling-Motors-Co-Ltd, according to a posting by China’s state-planner, as the country accelerates approvals for green-car-projects.
Jiangxi Jiangling Group New Energy Vehicle Co Ltd has permission to proceed with a project to make 50,000 pure-electric-cars, according to a notice dated Monday in a database administered by the National-Development and Reform-Commission (NDRC).
The notice did not give further details. Government records separately show that Jiangling Motors is a shareholder.
China’s government has employed a raft of policies that spurred a boom in electric and plug-in hybrid cars since 2015.
