Shanghai Volkswagen launches Tantos electric vehicle sub-brand
Based on spy shots and the catalog number, China Car Times reports Tantos' first electric offering will be the E-Lavida, a vehicle that debuted in China back in mid-2010. Tantos joins Kai-Li, FAW-Volkswagen's electric-only sub-brand. Though Tantos and Kai-Li vehicles will both be sold exclusively in China, it's believed that VW's decision to launch two electric-only sub-brands is a strategic move that will give the German automaker a step up on the competition. It's unknown when either the Tantos E-Lavida or the Kai-Li E-Bora will launch in China.
