Finally Zotye cancelled plans to sell cars in Argentina. It was a decision for AnnaPurna (Zotye importer), after in July announced the launching of Zotye brand in Argentina.
Reason? Zotye didn't know that Argentina adopted Euro 5 normative in 1st January 2018, and also in the text they'd mentioned the LED daytime lights obligatory. AnnaPurna claims that "the Chinese government forbid Zotye to export Euro 5 cars" (but they produce them).

Re: Dorcen

DMitra, when you are able, please post an organization chart, or graphic, to illustrate the relationships between Jintan, Dacheng, TechNiu (Zotye) and the others.
It will make it easier for us to sort out the nature of this new start-up, which has produced so many models in a short time.
Thank you.

Dacheng Group is the most confusing.

_______________________________________

Note, in the above cases, Ying Jianren/Tech-New has provided financial backing to associated persons to set up or acquire these peripheral companies but has not directly invested in these companies. These associates* of Ying Jianren (and family) have been positioned as the face of these other companies, yet these new startups cannot be linked directly back to Tech-New, although it is widely known in the media that these new companies' activities are influenced by decisions at Tech-New and also rely for technology and manufacturing know-how on Tech-New/Zotye.

In these diagrams, I have only mentioned companies which have some relevance to our discussion on Zotye. Of course there are numerous other companies in the Tech-New and peripheral groups where these key personnel also have stakes or are important functionaries.

_______________________________________
*"associate" means persons who have a history of working in some important position at any Tech-New group company, like Zotye, before.

D Mitra thank you for the detailed graphics of a complex organization. It's amazing what has come out of a little (private) sheet metal and auto parts maker from Yonggang.
I knew it was complex but didn't realize just how complex it is.
Thank you for your trouble.
It seems with the revolutionary changes currently in full swing in the industry, everyone wants to have a part, not only at Zotye, and Faraday Future, but across the board.
I don't think I know anyone who has their hand on the pulse of the industry the way you do.

The original T600 (B11) has been discontinued in China. Current listings include the Sport and Coupe (B11A, B11F) variants, besides the New T600 (B11G).
...

The Zotye range has been pared down recently, with the Zema, Domy X5 and X7 gone (Dorcen having taken over); also the SR9 and SR7 are no longer being built (as of May) or promoted.
Pursuant to the above quote from another thread, let me add that as of 2020 Q1, the following models have been officially discontinued in the domestic market:
Z100, Yun 100 (EV), Z360, Z560, Z500EV, T300EV, T600 Sport, T600 Coupe, and T800.

Current:

Discontinued:

It looks like a lot of factory workers are working with little or no compensation, these days.
And, it seems Duke Hale, President of Haah Auto, has been having a string of bad luck with China's auto products. As happened earlier with his and Nanjing Auto's aspirations for the MG brand, he had pinned hopes on Zotye as exportable to the U.S.. Now his remaining hope is Chery's Vantas model, but the prospects for that are dimming as well.
