The S9 ... a Silk EV and FAW super electric car

Silk EV and FAW have announced a joint venture to develop a range of new high-luxury, high-performance sports cars for the Chinese and global markets.

The newly founded Italian Silk EV is not just a new attempt at making super electric cars, but the latest trend in mega-belt and highway projects in China.

Silk EV announced that it will work with Chinese automaker FAW to develop a super-luxury sports car called the S9 in its home regions such as Lamborghini and Ferrari.

The S9 is expected to be part of the Chinese carmaker's Hongqi brand, which stands for Hongqi. The S9 was pre-manufactured specifically for top Chinese government officials before it was widely used.

The two companies haven't released any specs or pictures for the S9, just a trailer.

Silk EV said in the press release: The vehicles produced by FAW Group combine a dynamic, sustainable and exclusive driving experience, along with the latest technology and innovations to promote the next generation of luxury cars in China and around the world.

This joint venture was formed after Silk EV and FAW Group announced in May 2020 that they will combine the best skills of China and Italy to integrate advanced automobiles, artificial intelligence, connectivity, innovative battery solutions and Internet of Things with Italy. Experience in design and engineering.

Among the many things announced, the car was designed by Walter de Silva, who designed and operated the Alfa Romeo, Audi and Lamborghini cars in the late 2000s and early 2000s. Designed by the Volkswagen Group.

Although only one XPeng keeps its promise after starting shipments to Europe in December, China's largest EV startup is committed to expanding overseas.

Larger and more powerful automakers have focused on the tremendous development opportunities electric cars provide to Chinese consumers, especially after the government began favoring clean energy cars a few years ago.

While Italy is a logical target market for the manufacture and sale of supercars, it is also a logical political partner for such projects, with Italy being the first country in the G7 to recognize the Belt and Road Initiative.

FAW Chairman and Secretary Xu Liuping said in the press release: “The joint venture with Silk EV is an important milestone in the Chinese Belt and Road Initiative, Italy and the global auto industry.
