Chinese company Grove Hydrogen Automotive will produce hydrogen-powered vehicles for Brazil under a cooperation agreement signed with the Minas Gerais state government, the company said in a statement.
The cooperation agreement establishes that both signatories will cooperate to introduce the Hydrogen Economy to Brazil and South America “through the specific advantages of the state of Minas Gerais and the advanced technologies of Grove.”
The chief executive and founder of the company, Hao Yiguo, said in the statement that Grove Hydrogen Automotive in the government of the Brazilian state had found the ideal partner and place to produce “green” cars, “similar to what we already do in China.”
