Hozon Electric Vehicles

Zhejiang Hezhong New Energy Vehicles introduces a new brand for electric vehicles dubbed Hozon Auto and known in China as Hezhong Qiche. The company was founded in 2014 and established in Tonxiang, Jiaxing City in the Zhejiang Province. Hozon qualified as the 13th automaker to receive an electric vehicle production certificate allowing it to produce 50,000 units per annum. Hozon unveiled its first concept vehicles, a compact crossover named @, at the 3rd World Internet Conference held in Wuzhen, Zhejiang Province during November 2016. The Hozon logo looks surprisingly similar than that of Mercedes and the rendering in the marketing material looks like that of an old generation Buick Lacrosse, while the @ like a Tesla Model X.

Hozon Auto has an affiliation with the Tsinghua University in Beijing, who’s Department of Automotive Engineering helped creating the @ concept car. Hozon Auto plans to bring an open Internet car platform to being.
