"We are very pleased about the fourth quarter of 2012 and full year financial results. While our legacy business experienced solid growth, EV sales have achieved a significant growth in both unit sales and revenue contributions." Mr. Xiaoming Hu, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Kandi Technologies commented, "2012 was a breakout year for Kandi, we not only launched China's largest EV leasing program in Hangzhou, but also have negotiated new EV expansion plans in the Shandong and Hainan markets. Kandi is now even better prepared for the increasing EV demand from Chinese consumers and well positioned to benefit from further government initiatives to promote electric vehicles in China."
