Chinese electric car startup NextEV is opening a facility in San Jose in California. While playing Pokémon Go in my neighborhood, I stumbled by the facility that is still under remodeling, but the big company letters are already on the building on 3200 North First Street. As you can see from the image that I took there is a Tesla Model X parked in front of the entrance.
The company was founded in 2014 by the founders of two Chinese car portals and is headquartered in Shanghai, and has raised $500 million so far. They have additional offices in Munich, Beijing, Hong Kong and London. NextEV is not the only EV-company in Silicon Valley. Beside Tesla there are also Atieva and Faraday Future who have either their headquarters there or a subsidiary.
NextEV is also hiring. Several dozen of job openings are listed on their website.
