Leap Motor-Changjiang cooperation

Just breaking that Leap Motor has joined hands with Changjiang Auto (Long River) of Hangzhou for production of Leap cars. Changjiang, as we know, is a NDRC-approved manufacturer of electric commercial vehicles and has even received type approval for its own passenger cars (but is yet to start production of any). Stamping, welding, and painting processes will be carried out in Jinhua at Leap Motor's own plant, then shipped to Hangzhou for final assembly. Nonetheless, the battery, electrical and data systems will be put together in-house.

According to an article on NE-times.com Leap Motor has wholly acquired Fujian New Fuda (Forta) as result of the uncertainties surrounding Changjiang Auto. Changjiang is Leap Motor's contract manufacturer, but currently in bankruptcy proceedings. Current production seems unaffected, because Leap Motor's deal is with a subsidiary of Changjiang Auto. With the acquisition of Forta, Leap Motor now has access to its own production licence.
