Los Angeles, California – A California-based electric car and battery company has entered into an agreement with China’s Great Wall Motor Company to develop electric vehicles for worldwide distribution.

CODA Holdings, a developer of advanced lithium-ion battery systems for its all-electric CODA sedan, intends to use Great Wall models for its vehicles.

“CODA is thrilled to be partnering to electrify Great Wall vehicles,” said CEO Phil Murtaugh. “With an extensive line of vehicles, and the leading Chinese manufacturer selling in volume in the European Union as well as more than 120 countries globally, our collaboration will enable us to provide our respective customers with a broad selection of high-performing and affordable electric vehicles globally.”

The partnership would blend key technology capabilities from the Chinese automaker with CODA’s purpose-built lithium-ion phosphate battery system, and will expand CODA’s relationships with Chinese automakers in the world’s largest auto market.
