Mr. Xiaoming Hu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Kandi Technologies, commented, "We are very pleased to report another successful quarter just before the initial launch of our largest EV project in China, Hangzhou's 20,000 EV leasing program. The third quarter demonstrated the balanced growth of both Kandi's legacy businesses, particularly the ATV and Go-cart segment, and the continued strength of our EV business offerings. During the quarter, we achieved robust year-over-year revenue and net income growth. We also have very strong EV sales in Jinhua City and sold 471 EVs in Q3. In coming months, by collaborating closely with State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC), China Aviation Lithium Battery Co., Ltd (CALB), and Hangzhou municipal government, we expect to launch the initial shipment of the first 5000 EVs to CALB for the currently largest pure EV commercialization launch in China -- the 20,000 pure EV leasing program in Hangzhou."
"There is a growing demand in China for clean energy products and solutions at both the national as well as municipal level. Our company is uniquely positioned to capitalize on this trend with our practical EV products and innovative business model which shall strengthen Kandi's market leadership in China."
"The recent Letter of Intent we have entered with the government of Weifang Binhai Economic Development Zone of Shandong Province and Wanning city government of Hainan Province will help us effectively expand into new markets and build order backlog for the years to come. We are confident that our business model will be soon replicated in many other markets throughout China given our successful track record, favorable central government policy, support from regional government and our strong alliance with industry partners," concluded Mr. Hu.
