"The hydrogen and fuel cell automotive industry is Shanghai's future-oriented strategic industry", said Wu Jincheng, head of the Shanghai Municipal Commission of Economy and Information Technology.

"Jiading has been developing the auto industry for years and is known as Shanghai's auto industry center. It is expected to take the lead in establishing a complete hydrogen energy and fuel cell vehicle industrial chain in Shanghai."

In recent years, Jiading has been taking steps to develop the hydrogen energy and fuel cell vehicle industry. SAIC has invested over 1 billion yuan ($144.5 million) in the development of fuel cell stacks and systems, electronic control, and vehicle integration. It has completed development of three fuel cell vehicles for the 200-type fuel cell system, leading the construction of China's fuel cell vehicle industry chain.
