Warren Buffett-backed BYD starts construction on Chongqing plant for EVs

Chinese auto-parts maker BYD Co. Ltd. started construction on its new factory in Chongqing to produce batteries for electric vehicles, Xinhua Net reported Feb. 24.

The company, which is backed by Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc. has planned an investment of 10 billion Chinese yuan for the factory, which would have an annual output capacity of 20 GWh, the news outlet said.

BYD is expected to complete first-stage production and begin operations on the site in a year, the report added.

In addition, the company reportedly started work on its 2.4 billion yuan rail bus project and will launch a trial by the end of 2019.

Meanwhile, BYD also plans to roll out eight automatic lithium-ion battery production lines for making power cells, modules and packs, Xinhua Net said.

As of Feb. 22, US$1 was equivalent to 6.71 Chinese yuan.
