After all the drama over SOL, now this:

VW's Seat to enter China with stake in JAC venture

Volkswagen AG's (VOW.XE) Seat brand targets entering the Chinese market between 2020 and 2021 and could become a shareholder of its Chinese joint venture JAC Volkswagen, the German car group said Monday.

Volkswagen said it, together with Seat, signed a memorandum of understanding with its Chinese partner Anhui Jianghuai Automobile Group Corp. Ltd. (600418.SH), or JAC.

Under the agreement Seat will become a shareholder in the existing joint venture between VW and JAC, "through either a capital increase of JAC Volkswagen or a share transfer from Volkswagen Group China," Volkswagen said.

The three partners also agreed to establish a joint research-and-development center for the development of electric vehicles and autonomous-driving technologies tailored to the Chinese market, among other things.
