Changan's Green Jiexun-HEV Hybrid Drives China's Eco-Strategy

In May, the Chinese automaker Changan will be offering its self-developed hybrid-power Jiexun-HEV sedan.

Changan supplied hybrid-drive cars as taxis for the Olympic Games at Beijing. The taxis used European-supplied electronics for the "mild hybrid" drive.  The new Jiexun-HEV is the first production run of the vehicle using an all-domestic hybrid drive system.

Ford and Changan are in negotiations to develop a fully-electric car for the US market. China has set the goal of becoming a major world hybrid and EV producer within the next three years.

I’m betting they’ll do it.
