More electric car news from Taiwan. Two Chinese automakers are ready to develop and sell electric cars there. Chery, for instance, has announced the creation of an R&D center in the upcoming "Green Energy Intelligent Vehicle Innovation Park (EV Park)" in central Taiwan. This would give Chery access to Taiwan's EV technology. Geely Auto has announced sales in Taiwan of the electric version of the Panda model (pictured above) thanks to Yulon Motor Co, which would develop the EV with lithium-ion batteries. The model, to be ready for 2011, will be sold under Yulon Motor's Tobe brand.

      Since when did Taiwan know a lot about EV tech!?

        Taiwan has a healthy supply for electric engineers. I think they can figure it out. car's aren't very high tech.

        "...car's aren't very high tech."

        LOL. I think you might be mistaken. A car is generally the most technologically complex item a person can ever hope to own.

        Tesla, I believe was working with a firm out of Taiwan during early production of the Roadster. Then Tesla moved more of the operation to California.

        Taiwan has started to develop PEDELEC/EPAC knowledge long ago. Since power of city electric vehicles is within a magnitude of 10, they may use this knowledge upscaling....
