Jinhua, China-based Kandi Technologies Group, Inc. announced that Kandi brand electric vehicle Model EX3 and Model K22 have been approved for importation and registration in the USA by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
This is another significant milestone after qualifying for a $7,500 U.S. Federal tax credit in October 2018. The NHTSA approval is an assurance that Kandi's two EV models conform to NHTSA standards and are registered in the U.S. The JV Company will begin the process of launching the Model EX 3 and Model K22 for the American market.
Mr. Hu Xiaoming, chairman and chief executive officer of Kandi commented, "We are thrilled Kandi Model EX3 and Model K22 received approval from the NHTSA. The approval has demonstrated our EV models meet all the necessary requirements and standards of the U.S. government. With this, we are confident in introducing our reliable vehicles to the American public. We believe both the EX3 and K22 are competitive in price and quality with advanced tech features that are in demand by American consumers. We are confident that SC Autosports, our U.S. subsidiary, will have a successful launch and grow the EV market in addition to its powersports business."
SC Autosports is the Texas-based U.S. distributor of Massimo, Bennche and Linhai — and Kandi — vehicles.
