Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC) wants to get into the hybrid business starting next year. They have built two dozen electric and hybrid cars for use by officials during next years Beijing Olympic games and they hope to ramp production up to 10,000 hybrids a year by 2010. SAIC has long had joint ventures both Volkswagen and General Motors. It's unknown if the new hybrid system will be in-house designs or licensed from one of their partners. The GM belt-alternator-starter mild hybrid system seems like a possible candidate for a first application.
