The plant is also the first to be completed and go into mass production among all of Chery Holding’s planned super factory projects in China.

The Qingdao factory covers an area of ​​260,000 square meters, including stamping, welding, painting, final assembly, research and development centers, test and detection facilities, and a lock-up area. Its production lines can simultaneously produce many petroleum-fueled and new-energy passenger cars, with a planned annual output of 200,000 units, which means that on average a new car will roll off the assembly line every 1.5 minutes.

The plant’s annual output is expected to reach 38 billion yuan ($5.33 billion). The project has also attracted more than 20 businesses that support production networks to locate in the area.

Since breaking ground in June 2021, it took Chery Holding 17 months to set up a state-of-the-art super factory and produce the plant’s first car.

In the first ten months of this year, Chery Holding sold a total of 1.0268 million vehicles, generating a total revenue of 167 billion yuan ($23.4 billion).
