BEIJING, Sept. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Quhuo International held a new energy vehicle (NEV) dispatch ceremony in Lianyungang, JiangSu, during which 300 units of Toyota BZ4X, 1720 units of Volkswagen EBORA, along with nearly 3,000 units of NEVs from various other brands were successfully shipped. This vehicle shipment marks the initial establishment and smooth operation of Quhuo International’s new energy vehicle trading system (“NEV trading system” or the “Trading system”).
Quhuo International’s NEV trading system is dedicated to providing premium vehicle trading services to domestic and international partners. The trading system already possesses high-quality domestic supplies of new energy vehicles (NEVs), both brand-new and used. All these vehicles undergo thorough preparation and upgrades by automotive professionals to ensure their quality and performance reach optimal conditions.
The NEVs are transported to dealers’ distribution networks through Quhuo International’s established logistics system. Moreover, in overseas markets, Quhuo International will continue to assist dealers in discovering and expanding the application of vehicles for family and mobility use, thereby maximizing such vehicles’ value and promoting the global adoption of NEVs.
The 1,720 units of Volkswagen EBORA, which were shipped this time, were obtained through close collaboration and joint auctions between Quhuo International and domestic strategic partners. Within the Trading System, these NEVs underwent a comprehensive process of vehicle procurement, technical preparation and upgrades, and complied with regulations in the destination country. The smooth shipment of this batch of vehicles will bring new business and growth opportunities for overseas dealers. Quhuo International will also provide comprehensive overseas operational support to them.
Quhuo International’s overseas expansion model effectively avoids the adverse effects of disorderly market competition. Through Quhuo International’s distribution system, importers and distributors can achieve stable profits within an organized framework. Quhuo International integrates NEV overseas ecosystem, supported by the strength of domestic strategic partners, aiming to share the benefits of China’s NEVs with domestic and international partners. Since the launch of the Trading System, the trading volume has continuously increased, and this shipment demonstrates the stability and sustainability of the Trading System.
Mr. Liang Bo, the head of Quhuo International, pointed out that Quhuo International will continue to uphold the core values of “integrity, cooperation, innovation, and win-win” and constantly surpass itself. In the future, building upon the foundation of distributor network covering 58 countries, Quhuo International will launch Trading Platform 2.0, dedicating efforts to promote the healthy development of the NEV trading platform.
