SEAT and JAC will conquer China
SEAT announced a joint venture of 50 percent with JAC Motors so that, starting in 2019, electric vehicles of the Spanish brand will be manufactured in China, which will be designed only for the local market.
During the first months in China, SEAT will focus on tests for the production of electric cars, so it will take many months for us to see SEAT’s new electric vehicles in Europe or in our continent.
JAC Motors is one of the leading car manufacturers in China, currently has a presence in more than 120 countries. JAC Motors is a new company for Mexico, since 2017 started sales and even has a plant in Ciudad Sahagún, Hidalgo, where the S2 and S3 SUVs are manufactured.
