A few days ago, the Ministry of Industry and Trade received an application for a special investment contract from a potential manufacturer of electric vehicles; it was drawn up on behalf of Motorinvest LLC. After talking with sources from Motorinvest’s entourage and studying customs documents, the journalists came to the conclusion that Motorinvest would produce electric vehicles for Jinkang, a subsidiary of Sokon.
