FAW TOYOTA RANZ E50 EV

The FAW/Toyota Joint Venture the FAW Toyota Ranz E50 EV during the Guangzhou Auto Show in 2014. The vehicle is based on the Toyota Corolla EX. Production commenced in 2016 at the Taida Plant in the Tianjin Economic Development Zone, China. Both the Ranz E50 EV and the LEAHEAD i1 EV, which is based on the Yaris, is seemed as attempts by the Japanese company to appease the Chinese Government since they are in reality not supporting battery technology. China embarked on a strategy to acquire international intellectual property by forcing joint ventures on foreign auto brands through regulation. The result is that the international companies share only their older technologies and model series, which is doomed to fail from a commercial perspective. After all, who wants to buy a new old vehicle?
