GreenTech Automotive, manufacturer of the electric MyCar, and Chinese automaker JAC Motors have announced a new partnership that will include the development of a five-passenger electric sedan. The new electric sedan will combine JAC’s Rejoice vehicle platform with an electric powertrain from GreenTech Automotive. All vehicles will be assembled in the United States.

The new electric sedan will have a driving range of 100 miles and will feature a 19 kwh battery that can be recharged in 6-8 hours. GreenTech Automotive (GTA) will assemble the vehicles in its Horn Lake, Miss., facility for distribution in North America exclusively beginning late-2013. After a pilot production of 2,000 vehicles, GTA plans to establish another assembly facility for the sedan and expects to create 200 additional jobs in the United States.

JAC is recognized worldwide for the caliber and quality of its manufacturing. GTA’s innovative electric powertrain is a perfect fit for JAC’s EV platform, which has won numerous national awards in China,” said Charles Wang, Chairman and CEO, GTA. “Our meetings clearly revealed that there was good synergy between the JAC platforms and our technology and both companies immediately understood that a strategic partnership is in each company’s best interest.”

“The five-passenger sedan is a natural complement to our two-passenger MyCar product line,” said Marianne McInerney, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing, GTA. “The MyCar, which offers consumers a fun, affordable driving experience, is already seeing strong response, achieving distribution agreements for the sale of more than 30,000 units over the next three years. The JAC-GTA partnership allows us to expand our product line-up with a sedan and allows us to offer the GTA technology with great amenities and room for five passengers while adhering to our philosophy of being price competitive.”
