Agreement on EV manufacturing coming: Nadeh said that there are plans to sign another agreement with an unnamed Chinese company to locally assemble electric vehicles. Our money is on this being Dongfeng, which has been in negotiations with El Nasr to produce EVs since last year. El Nasr began preparing a feasibility study to manufacture 25k electric cars in partnership with the Wuhan-based company ahead of an agreement that was expected to be signed in 2Q2020.
