LAKE FOREST, Calif. – May 2, 2019 – Zotye USA’s first vehicle for the U.S. market will be a compact CUV, the T600, Duke Hale, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Zotye USA and HAAH Automotive Holdings announced today.

Zotye is anticipated to be the first Chinese automaker to sell vehicles in the United States under its own brand name. The T600 debuted at the Shanghai Motor Show on April 16 this year and is anticipated to go on sale in China next year. The U.S. model is expected to use an inline four-cylinder engine with turbocharging, an engine displacement of 1.6-liters and a six-speed automatic transmission.

Zotye USA is currently planning to bring in at least two additional vehicles, a mid-size CUV and a sedan. Timing for when those vehicles will go on sale has not yet been announced.

“This T600 is a perfect vehicle for the U.S. market and I’m very excited to announce it will be the first Zotye product to go on sale here. The vehicle has excellent quality, outstanding safety features and will be very well equipped with a unique design that will make it popular with American buyers ” said Hale.

Zotye USA’s formation was announced on November 13, 2018 as the exclusive sales and distribution company of Zotye Automobiles for the U.S. market.

“Homologation and certification work on the T600 have been ongoing for some time and are proceeding on schedule. We’re reviewing the optimal timing for putting the vehicle on sale and anticipate sales will begin at the end of 2020 or early in the first quarter of 2021,” said Senior Vice President, Sales, Bob Pradzinski.

Development of the Zotye USA franchised new car dealer network is also proceeding as planned. The company had announced in January that it had signed agreements for 19 new vehicle sales locations. Today, the number of locations stands at 60 and the company anticipates it will have close to 300 locations in the top 100 markets by the time the T600 goes on sale. Total size of the Zotye USA sales network is expected to be about 325 locations.

“We’re actually running slightly ahead of our sign-up plan at the present time,” said Pradzinski. “While there are a lot of opportunities remaining for dealers, the window has already closed in some markets. I’ve been very encouraged by the commitment from dealers to our customer-friendly approach that will feature one-price selling. They are also thrilled with our dealer-friendly focus that emphasizes dealer ROI. Zotye USA has a disruptor mindset and our new transparent shopping, buying and ownership experience will become the best way to meet the needs of new car buyers,” he said.

The first step for any dealer interested in a Zotye USA new car franchise is to complete a non-disclosure agreement and initial application which will result in a contact from a member of the Zotye team. The agreement and application are available at: https://haahauto.com/contactus.html.

LAKE FOREST, Calif. June 12, 2019 – HAAH Automotive Holdings and Zotye USA, the distributor of Zotye Automobiles of China, have opened their new, joint headquarters in the Orange County, California city of Irvine. HAAH is co-locating the headquarters of its wholly owned subsidiary, Zotye USA, in the same building.

Zotye USA will begin selling its first model, the Zotye T600 CUV at the end of 2020 or the beginning of 2021. The company is currently preparing for the sales launch as it builds out its franchised new vehicle dealer network and puts in place its cloud-based information technology structure, vehicle and parts shipping distribution systems, marketing, research and customer relations systems and other operations.

The office consists of 13,500-square feet of space and is located on the top floor of the building at 29 Parker, Irvine, California.

“HAAH’s original office was located nearby and it was always our plan to keep the headquarters of HAAH and Zotye USA in Southern California. Irvine provides us with a very desirable location for employees, a highly educated labor pool to draw from as we grow, excellent transportation options throughout the U.S. and China and great neighborhoods for our employees to live in. Our new headquarters building is another step in HAAH’s fast-paced growth trajectory in the U.S. It will also prove to be an excellent location for Zotye USA as we prepare to begin selling the first Zotye CUV in less than two years,” said Chairman and CEO of HAAH Automotive Holdings and Zotye USA, Duke Hale.

Move in at the facility has already begun, with the management team putting the offices to use immediately upon the facility’s completion.

“We’re a startup company, built on speed, high-technology systems, a love of vehicles and the hardest working people I’ve ever seen. The minute there was a desk in the offices, someone was sitting at it, working at a hundred miles an hour,” said Hale.

The company is planning an official opening ceremony later this year.

Earlier the company announced that it will begin sales in the U.S. with a new SUV and follow that with a second SUV and a passenger car in the years that follow.

“We’re really pleased, though not surprised, that the milestone of signed appointments for 100 markets has been reached earlier than we first estimated,” said Hale. “Dealers are hungry to be part of our new, disruptive, method of selling vehicles to consumers in a low pressure, high satisfaction, no haggle, highly efficient environment. Combine a dealer friendly, transparent environment with an SUV that will have an extremely high level of safety equipment, great quality and durability, outstanding styling and a very attractive price, and it’s no surprise we are beating our earlier plan” Hale added.
