car-maker BAIC said on Tuesday it expects the first
vehicles to roll off its new 11 billion rand ($826 million)
South African assembly plant early next year, with most of the
vehicles destined for export.
The plant, near the automotive export hub of Port Elizabeth,
is the first new car plant in South Africa in four decades and
is expected to build 50,000 vehicles a year by 2022, half its
estimated peak output, officials said.
