China's First Automobile Works (FAW) launched the first batch of 20 new-energy vehicles and put them on the market in Changchun, capital city of northeast China's Jilin Province on Aug. 22, 2011.

These independently developed new-energy vehicles include the Besturn plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) and pure electric vehicle (EV). The PHEV is the new-generation energy-saving and environmental protection vehicle developed by the FAW, while the EV's VCU driving control software has its own intellectual property.

The FAW has a yearly production capacity of 10,000 units of new-energy vehicles. During the 12th Five Year Plan period, the FAW will invest nearly 10 billion yuan in developing new-energy cars and build eight new-energy vehicle production platforms in order to realize the full-scale development of new-energy vehicles.
