According to Shanghai Automotive Group Co., Ltd., on March 28th, Berlin time, under the common witness of Chinese President Xi Jinping and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Chen Hong, Vice Chairman and President of SAIC Motor and a member of the Management Board of the Volkswagen Group of Germany, Prof. Hezmann, president and CEO of Volkswagen Group (China), signed a joint statement in Berlin. Both parties will carry out fuel cell technology cooperation and jointly accelerate the industrialization of plug-in hybrid vehicles with Shanghai Volkswagen.
For a long time, SAIC Group has been entrusted by the Ministry of Science and Technology, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Finance to undertake research and development projects in fuel cell countries. This project is one of the key topics for the technological innovation project of China's new energy automotive industry. In May 2011, at the 11th Bibiden Challenge in Berlin, Germany, SAIC Group's Plug-in fuel cell sedan competed in the rally of the fuel cell car group and ranked third, second only to Toyota and Audi. In April 2012, the SAIC Group's fuel cell sedan was the only new energy vehicle exhibited by the Chinese delegation and was exhibited at the Hannover International Industrial Fair in Germany. It was reviewed by the Chinese and German Prime Ministers. This time, SAIC Group once again, with a global vision, has united the Volkswagen Group as an international partner of this scientific research project to conduct international cooperation in the fields of hydrogen energy infrastructure construction and the coordination of international standards for fuel cells.
At the same time, in order to help Shanghai Volkswagen, a joint venture between the two parties, gain market opportunities for new energy vehicles, SAIC and Volkswagen Group will assist Shanghai Volkswagen in developing plug-in strong mixing technologies suitable for the Chinese market to launch plug-in strong mixers that meet the needs of the Chinese market as soon as possible. product. At present, SAIC's Roewe 550 plug-in strong-mix cars are already on the market. The 2.3-liter 100km fuel consumption and cruising range of up to 500km will bring Chinese consumers the world's most advanced plug-in hybrid technology.
Since the birth of the first generation of the "Fenghuang 1" fuel cell vehicle in 2001, SAIC Group has remained unyielding in the industrialization of new energy vehicles. At present, more than 20 new energy vehicles have been developed. The technical routes span pure electric vehicles, hybrid vehicles, fuel cells, super capacitors, compressed natural gas, and dimethyl ether. The types of products include cars, buses, and buses. Roewe 750 hybrid, Roewe E50 pure electric car, Roewe 550 plug-in strong mixed car three products have achieved industrialization goals. After experiencing the long-running test of the World Expo and the testing of market consumers, SAIC Group is more mature and confident in the industrialization of new energy automotive technology. Looking ahead, SAIC Group will further promote the industrialization of pure electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid vehicles, and at the same time promote R&D, upgrade and demonstration of fuel cell vehicles, and quickly reduce the average fuel consumption value of products by implementing energy-saving and new energy vehicle strategies.â€ Beautiful China "makes unremitting efforts.
