VW and JAC to start mobility services in China

Barcelona was the unlikely location where VW, its Chinese JV partner JAC and Hefei city signed an agreement to offer mobility services, such as ride-hailing and short-term rental. Hefei is the East-Chinese capital of the Anhui province, home to 8 million people and JAC’s headquarters.

The collaboration between VW and JAC goes further than the Hefei project: both manufacturers are developing and producing EVs under the SEAT brand and the JVs Sol brand. Ultimately, Hefei will become the JVs testing ground for various technologies, such as autonomous.
