Lake Forest automaker HAAH Motors Holdings said the first of its SUVs under the Vantas brand will be made in China with COVID delaying the company’s plans to find a U.S. manufacturing plant.
HAAH currently has the automotive brands Vantas and T-Go, with the Vantas VX SUV and Vantas TXL, a mid-size SUV, slated for release by the end of 2022. These would be the first vehicles released by HAAH.
The automaker has also signed a letter of intent that forms a joint venture with Shanghai SICAR Automotive Technology Development Co. Ltd., a vehicle engineering firm in China, to help with the rollout of its automotive brands and for the creation of its U.S. factory.
The LOI expands a previous engineering service agreement between the two companies.
