Mr. Hu Xiaoming, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Kandi, commented, “due to the 2018 government subsidy policy adjustments in product structure requirements, the JV Company discontinued the manufacturing and selling of its EV products with a driving range of less than 200km and shifted its focus to the development of new EV models with a driving range exceeding 300km. Currently, our new 300km EV models K23,K27,and K28 (EX3) received the approval from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People’s Republic of China. The JV Company has resumed its normal production and sales. With restored production and a recovery of sales, we believe that Kandi's growth will return to the previous predicted track. Despite recent weak stock performance, the management team is dedicated to improving Kandi’s market competitiveness and regaining our leading position in the EV industry.”
