Hanteng looks serious about being competitive in an already crowded market of SUVs and CUVs.
Its website gives no hint about its connection with the Tieniu Group, mentioned above, or with Tieniu's other subsidiaries Zotye, and Jiangnan. So it's puzzling that Hanteng, without an initial offering of NEV models*, would have received the approval of the NDRC and a license to produce at a time when consolidation is being encouraged by Beijing. It doesn't seem practical to duplicate the efforts of Zotye in both production and distribution.

This seems to be just one more surprising startup, late in the game, like Weichai, Changjiang and CH.
Hanteng's website is an impressive one with English available, and an indication that connections have already been forged with major global suppliers like Mahle, Continental, Samsung and Ricardo.
Anyway I look forward to Hanteng's foray into the world of NEVs and the Internet of Vehicle ( IoV) as proposed in its introduction.

* correction: One PHEV was mentioned briefly

Thank you Dmitra.
It appears that Hanteng's General Manager Li Xueming, does not want to acknowledge a tie up between his company and Zotye.
If the full acquisition of Zotye by old friend Huangshan Jinma does go through, then we will probably know if any relationship existed or not.

Here's an interesting article that may shed some light on the relationship:
