China EV Group, as the commercial wing and marketing force of Arcfox EV, has already made its headway in a number of EU countries with both the conclusion of regional dealerships and deliveries since WVTA was granted last year.  China EV Group will continue to explore the opportunities in Spain of investing in EV charging infrastructure and assembling & manufacturing capability in the near future.

 

Alongside with BAIC New Energy Vehicles (NEV) - one of strategic Chinese EV partners with China EV Group, Jane welcomed the new addition of further partnership with the Port Authority of Ferrol to establish a port of entry for Arcfox into EU.  As the first batch of demo vehicles, four of the Arcfox EV models have arrived at Ferrol and a fifth model will be added to this, expected to be revealed between May and June.

 

With an initial investment of €5 million to adapt facilities in Ferrol and 50 direct jobs created for the first arrival of the models, Jane reiterated the significance of the Spanish market for the ARCFOX overseas operation, stating that “My base will be in Ferrol”. 

 


Mr. Yu Tao, head of marketing of BAIC NEV, commented that the opening of facilities at port of Ferrol is a crucial step for Arcfox’s plans to expand on the European market and highlighted the importance of the project in revolutionizing the continental scene.

 

Mr. Francisco Barea, President of the Port Authority of Ferrol, highlighted the commitment to continue creating new investments by pursuing opportunities to open new traffic such as the Arcfox venture. This will reinforce Port Ferrol’s continued strategic importance as well as placing Ferrol at the forefront for bringing in high-end vehicles to Spain and the rest of Europe.
