Chinese EV startup NextEV opens Silicon Valley headquarters
Another electric car startup from China has officially come to California, with NextEV opening an office in San Jose. The firm joins a growing list of Chinese EV startups making their way to the West coast of the US.
While NextEV has not formally shown any cars, but we recently reported on a leaked image of a NextEV supercar concept testing in the UK. It is rumored to have Rimac-like performance, with 1360hp, a top speed of over 186mph and a 0-60 time of under 3 seconds, and will be formally revealed in November. It makes sense that NextEV would be interested in sportscars, as the company is also known for their Formula E team. Their driver Nelson Piquet Jr. won the inaugural Formula E championship in 2014-2015.
