Kandi Technologies Group says its electric vehicle models, EX3 and Model K22 have been approved for import and registration in the US by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Approval by the American authority is a milestone after qualifying for a US$7,500 US Federal tax credit in October, last year.

The JV Company will now start the process of launching the EX 3 and K22 for the American market. 

“The approval has demonstrated our EV models meet all the necessary requirements and standards of the US government,” said Kandi chairman and CEO, Hu Xiaoming.

“With this, we are confident in introducing our reliable vehicles to the American public. We believe both the EX3 and K22 are competitive in price and quality with advanced tech features in demand by American consumers.

“We are confident SC Autosports, our US subsidiary, will have a successful launch and grow the EV market in addition to its powersports business.”
