China's Great Wall Motor Co. wants to more than double its annual sales to 2 million vehicles by 2025, with roughly a third of those expected to be electric vehicles.
Khodrocar - The Baoding automaker also plans to invest 20 billion yuan ($3.2 billion) on EV r&d by 2020, Great Wall Motor President Wang Fengying told a session of the National People's Congress in Beijing.

Wang's remarks come as China's industrial policymakers try to engineer a dramatic shift away from conventional gasoline vehicles with subsidies and strict production quotas for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles.

The company "will push forward with a renewable innovation strategy and will aim to assume leading positions" in electric battery vehicle technology as well as hydrogen electric fuel-cell know-how, she said.

Great Wall Motor sold 950,315 vehicles last year, down 1.9 percent from 2016, according to Automotive Foresight, a Shanghai-based consultancy.

Great Wall Motor and BMW AG aim to jointly produce electric Mini vehicles in China, signing a letter of intent last month.

A successful conclusion to the talks would give Great Wall Motor its first foreign manufacturing partner and result in the first Mini assembly site outside Europe for BMW.

Wang also said on Thursday that the company planned to launch three new heavily electrified car models this year and two more next year.
