Zhongsheng dealerships may sell Denza electric cars

Article by Anita Panait, on June 21, 2013

Denza electric cars may be sold in dealerships owned by Zhongsheng Group Holdings, one of largest dealer groups in China, according to the vehicle’s builder, Shenzhen BYD Daimler New Technology Co. Shenzhen BYD Daimler, a 50-50 joint venture between Daimler and BYD Co., is planning to disclose its Denza dealers for Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen by the end of July 2013, said Hu Xiaoqing, manager at the venture's marketing department.

Once Denza hits the market, it would become one of the latest all-electric vehicles flocking to be sold in China, which is now considered as the largest vehicle market in the world. China’s No. 1 carmaker, SAIC Motor Corp., has been selling the Roewe E50 electric car since November 2012, and is planning to introduce more zero-emissions vehicles with its foreign partners.

BYD, on the other hand, is offering the e6 electric car under its own brand. Under the joint-venture agreement, Daimler provides expertise in EV architecture and safety while BYD provides batteries and the e-drive system. In April 2013, Shenzhen BYD Daimler announced it expects to roll out its first vehicle in mid 2014. [source: automotive news - sub. required]
