As of today, the company has applied for 1,618 patents, including 723 inventions, 11 international patents, 8 of which are inventions. It further owns 11 software copyrights.

The delegation and the management team shared views on hot industry topics such as battery safety, the important role of the government promoting building charging stations, Governor Wu expressed his hope for Qiantu Motor: Given that China has rich coal resources but lacks oil and gas deposits, new energy vehicle has a bright future. Qiantu Motor should accurately grasp the changing trends and consumer demand in the global automotive industry, focus on technology innovation and strive to become the first mover amid fierce competition. Now that the launch of Qiantu K50 was well received by the industry, Qiantu Motor should continue to uphold a corporate spirit of “Evolution in Motion”, remain a strong leader in the NEV sector, help elevate the integrated strategic development of the YRD to the next level, and contribute further to the transformation of China’s auto industry.
