Chehejia (“Car and Home”), which just reached its first birthday last month, is a Beijing-based electric vehicle startup that plans to disrupt the transportation and auto industries through complete vertical integration. It will design, research, manufacture, sell, and offer services featuring a few models of electric vehicle: a small smart car for inner city trips, and a larger electric SUV for longer crosstown journeys. But it’s much more than just a car sales company; Chehejia will also offer rental services and Uber-like on demand ride hailing.
The current round of funding will be used on R&D and the construction of a manufacturing plant.
