by the end of the year. By 2015, production would reach 50,000 cars.

If built, the factory would give some support to China’s attempt to sell 5 million electric cars in the country by 2020. So far EVs and hybrids has struggled to catch on in China.

Nissan hopes to have 10% of its sales be from EVs by 2020, but it has also had problems finding customers at those levels.

The Guangdong provincial government where the factory would be built published a report stating an interest to having a capacity of 200,000 alternative-fuel vehicles by 2015.
