This is Yajule’s overweight investment in Weima automobile again. Up to now, the total financing amount of this round has reached US $457 million and all have been recorded. And before Weima’s current round of financing, the third-party valuation has reached US $6 billion

up to now, Weima has a total financing amount of about 35 billion yuan, making it the new power of car making with the highest total financing in China. Far more than the fundraising of Weilai, ideal and Xiaopeng before listing

as a wind outlet industry in the past two years, in only two years, the relevant strong new energy stocks have increased by 5 times or even 10 times. With such a huge increase, the new energy track is still not peaking and full of broad prospects. Therefore, many real estate enterprises have turned their attention to new energy vehicles and related industries. New energy vehicles have become one of the most popular tracks for real estate enterprises in recent years

capital highlights: the freshness of technology will release the growth potential

among many new forces in car making, Weima automobile is the only car enterprise with two self built high digital and automatic intelligent factories in front of heavy assets. At the same time, the company is the world’s only mass production company to deliver L4 class autopilot in specific scenarios. These are the key factors for Weima to win the favor of capital

not only that, Weima’s product camp is also being improved. Not long ago, the appearance of Weima M7 attracted great attention in the industry.

this time, Weima automobile and Yajule join hands again. For Weima, it is not only money, but also the strategic coordination between Weima and Yajule

advantages combined with service upgrading, users on both sides or become the biggest gainers

automotive commentator Temu believes that as a domestic high-end real estate brand, Yajule also faces the dilemma of innovation in the real estate industry, and transformation is imminent. The new energy vehicle industry is widely regarded as a blue ocean with broad development prospects in the future

as a high-end real estate group, Yajule group has formed a stable industrial system through years of development. According to the data, the property management service sector of Yajule covers 31 provincial administrative regions and 200 cities, with more than 3600 service projects, more than 3 million service households and more than 130000 employees. Among them, the rapid growth of Yajule’s real estate sector will also bring at least 50000 new owners and 400000 potential customers every year

based on Yajule’s profound property and other related resources, from the perspective of sales and service network alone, Weima automobile will obtain more than 3000 sales and service contacts without front fees, improve the massive offline test drive scenarios, enhance the continuous communication with potential users, and improve the sales transformation. Weima can also create a more accurate charging and energy supplement network based on the massive data of Yajule industry, so as to provide end users with a wider and more convenient charging and energy supplement system

to sum up, Temu believes that Yajule’s layout of the new energy vehicle industry by taking shares in Weima automobile is relatively stable. After all, this mode of cooperation is based on the framework of the existing mature business systems of both sides, and brings steady growth opportunities. It has positive conditions both at the capital level and in terms of business growth of both sides

Yajule’s capital injection, brand influence and strong offline sales system can quickly enhance Weima’s influence in the growing intelligent pure electric vehicle market and further establish Weima’s leading advantage in intelligent technology and industrial layout. Weima also said that with the help of D2 round of financing, it will continue to invest in the development of cutting-edge intelligent electric vehicle technology and broaden and deepen sales and service channels

this is not only beneficial to the business of both sides of the enterprise, but also the user groups of the two brands can enjoy the “quality leap” of the services agreed by both sides

according to the data, Yajule was founded in 1992. It is a comprehensive group mainly engaged in real estate development and diversified development in life services, environmental protection, hotels, property investment, capital investment and other industries. It was listed on the main board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in 2005

Weima Automobile Holding Co., Ltd. is a smart electric vehicle brand leading the mainstream market in China. As of November 2021, it has delivered more than 83000 vehicles in more than 200 cities in China. (end)
