Reuters quoted German supplier Duerr as saying that Future Mobility Corporation (FMC), the Chinese parent company behind electric car start-up Byton, has placed an order for a paint shop capable of handling 150,000 cars per year.

China's Byton, a newcomer headed by the former head of BMW's i8 programme, has already released plans for a premium electric SUV vehicle, the latest in a series of China-backed electric autonomous prototypes.

Duerr said in a statement that "Duerr is building a paint shop for FMC's Byton brand in Nanjing for 150,000 cars per year," adding that this was one of the largest orders it had ever received from an electric car manufacturer.

Byton has financial backing from Chinese state-owned carmaker FAW Group and the country's dominant battery producer Contemporary Amperex Technology Co. (CATL)
