Geely Auto has joined hands with Taizhou Xindayang Group Co to produce an electric passenger car model ZD in Gansu province, and is set to roll off the joint venture’s first car on Sunday.

The joint venture will focus on a fully electric urban mini-car, and develop and manufacture electric vehicles for the nation, Geely Auto said in an email to the reporter.
