Haima Xiaopeng Smart Factory was inaugurated today. Although Haima had been making the Identy X until some time ago and started to build pilot batches of the G3 thereafter, officially the new line opened today in order to begin G3 deliveries from December 12th. Haima Xiaopeng Smart Factory is situated in Zhengzhou ETDZ, Henan, where modern automated welding, painting, and assembly shops have been established. It has a capacity of 150,000 vehicles p.a.

Its first phase was completed by December 2009. This new complex (Haima Car Industrial Park) now functions as the main base of Haima's operations in Zhengzhou.
