ZAP Jonway CFO Benjamin Zhu added: "We are one of the few smaller auto manufacturers to receive this kind of financial support from a large Chinese Bank. We appreciate the support we received from China Everbright Bank and know that this will be a long-term partnership in supporting our dealership network expansion and growth. We have in the past always received upfront direct payment from dealerships. But now with this bank financing credit available to our qualified dealers that have good credit ratings, these dealers can expand their sales and sub-dealership networks, thus supporting their growth."
