IRVINE, Calif. — Electric vehicle manufacturer Zotye USA (div. HAAH Automotive Holdings) has reached its goal of 100 U.S. dealer appointments ahead of schedule, HAAH Chairman and CEO Duke Hale announced in a release.

“We’re really pleased, though not surprised, that the milestone of signed appointments for 100 markets has been reached earlier than we first estimated,” Hale said.

Zotye USA is the American distributor for vehicles from Chinese automaker Zotye Automobile. The factory now has agreements in place in each of the 10 most populous states. Directors plan to have a presence in 250 markets by the time Zotye vehicles go on sale in the U.S. in 2021.

“Dealers are hungry to be part of our new, disruptive method of selling vehicles to consumers in a low pressure, high satisfaction, no haggle, highly efficient environment.”

In November, the company plans to enter the U.S. market with a single new SUV, with a second SUV and a car to follow.

“Dealers are hungry to be part of our new, disruptive method of selling vehicles to consumers in a low pressure, high satisfaction, no haggle, highly efficient environment,” Hale said. “Combine a dealer friendly, transparent environment with an SUV that will have an extremely high level of safety equipment, great quality and durability, outstanding styling, and a very attractive price, and it’s no surprise we are beating our earlier plan.”
