Default Shanghai Maple hybrid investment

SMA signed an agreement with Tongji University on June 30, 2005 to collaborate on the development of hybrid vehicles (company news release) and plans to invest 20 million ($2.5 million) this year. Seems like good long term planning with an eye toward energy independence.

this is surprising news for SMA, i thought they were going slowly disappear, but seems like they are putting effort and even growing

I still think Shanghai maple automotive should just be branded under geely since they are both small

10 000 cars sound quite optimistic but let's hope for the best
