On March 2, Chinese automaker SAIC and German chipmaker Infineon Technologies announced that they will form a joint venture to manufacture power modules for the Chinese electric vehicle market.
The joint venture company SAIC holds 51% and Infineon holds 49%. It is named SAIC Infineon Automotive Power Modules. It is headquartered in Shanghai and its production base is located. In the expansion project of the Infineon Wuxi plant, mass production is scheduled to begin in the second half of 2018.
Founded on April 1, 1999 in Munich, Germany, Infineon Technologies is one of the world's leading semiconductor companies, providing solutions for the wireless communications, automotive and industrial electronics, memory, computer security and chip card markets.
Chen Zhixin, president of SAIC, said: "We believe that Infineon's advanced power module solutions will be perfectly integrated with our expertise in electric vehicle and system. Electric vehicles not only provide customers with high convenience and unparalleled driving experience. It can also effectively alleviate energy and environmental pressures and promote the sustainable development of the automotive industry."
â€œOur joint venture will enable us to serve Chinese electric vehicle customers faster,â€ said Infineonâ€™s board member Jochen Hanebeck.
