Shanghai (Gasgoo)- On November 7, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology announced the first batch of New Energy Vehicle (NEV) Manufacturers for Public Notice, which lists a total of 27 NEV makers, such as Brilliance Auto, Hafei Automobile, Changan Peugeot Citroen, and Wanxiang Electric Vehicle.
The reason why these companies are listed is that they haven’t produced any NEV or submitted relevant data for at least 12 months. The companies on the list cannot apply for NEV product declaration at the moment.
According to certain regulations, all listed companies should pass the department’s inspection if they want to produce NEV again. Their qualification to build NEV models will be revoked if they fail to gain verification or go bankrupt. Apart from qualification revocation, those companies’ tax-free models will also be removed from the tax-free vehicle catalogue.
Actually, the initial draft included 30 automakers while GAC Honda, Changan Suzuki and Shandong Lichi submitted data before the publicity end. An official from GAC Honda told GASGOO that since there’s a time gap between qualification gaining and production, GAC Honda was thus put on the initial list.
Gasgoo not only offers timely news and profound insight about China auto industry, but also help with business connection and expansion for suppliers and purchasers via multiple channels and methods.
