Got a nice empty property in an industrial park in Germany? Centrally located, close to a major airport like Frankfurt, or Munich would be a plus? Then we know some Chinese you may want to talk to. They are in Shenzhen and work for BYD. BYD is coming to Europe. And they want to put their European HQ right into the German hornet’s nest.

BYD’s sales chief Henry Li told Die Welt that they are “still looking for the right location.” But Germany it will be. They want to find their German home this year. Starting in 2011, BYD wants to delight the European market with their E6 plugin and their F3DM hybrid. The first country that offers subsidies for electric cars will get the first BYDs. ADAC, prime your crash sleds. But maybe, with Daimler and BYD being in bed, maybe the ADAC will show some professional courtesy.
