Interestingly, the JV company, provisionally "JAC Volkswagen Automobile Co., Ltd.", was set up a fortnight after
the approval was received, although the application was made by both parties using that tentative name.
The project is located in the Hefei ETDZ. No additional land acquisition will be necessary but new halls to handle stamping, welding, painting, final assembly, R&D, and battery packs will have to be constructed. A new trademark (brand) needs to be registered, and "SEAT" is one of the possibilities.
Planned total investment is around 750 mn USD.
