The first phase of the Xiangcheng base, occupying an area of 600 mu (400,000 square meters), will own an annual production capacity of 50,000 vehicles. Including the 266,000-square-meter second phase, the total production capacity of the Xiangcheng base is expected to reach 200,000 vehicles per year.
