TIANJIN, Dec. 21 -- A Chinese leasing firm has signed a deal worth 78 billion yuan (12 billion U.S. dollars) with a Chinese-owned Swedish vehicle company, according to National Modern Energy Holdings (NMEH) on Monday.

NMEH is jointly invested and founded by Chinese and Swedish companies. Its Swedish investing party, National Electric Vehicle Sweden (NEVS), will produce 150,000 electric vehicles to China's leasing company Panda New Energy based on Saab 9-3 sedan-platform by the end of 2020.

In addition, the deal also includes 100,000 electric vehicle products and services from companies associated to NEVS and its owner, according to the agreement.

Owned by Chinese investors, NEVS took over Swedish car manufacturer Saab's assets and technologies after Saab's bankruptcy in 2012.

NMEH, located at Binhai New Area of north China's Tianjin municipality, aims to produce blade and extended range electric vehicles with the support of NEVS, said Peng Jinchun, general manager of NMEH.
