China’s Gotion High-Tech said on Wednesday that it will supply an estimated total of 126,000 electric vehicle (EV) battery packs to Geely’s light commercial electric vehicles within three years, deepening the ties between the two companies first forged in 2019. The Volkswagen-backed battery maker also reached deals with other automakers last year, including Great Wall Motor and Leapmotor. Total light-vehicle sales in China, including lightweight trucks and buses, slightly decreased 4.2% annually to 3.12 million units last year, according to official figures.
