The facility also offers a one-stop buying experience that includes financial services and onsite vehicle registration services.
Ideanomics noted that MEG will leverage the large audience attracted by the auto trading market to help educate the population through its upcoming EV-centric welcome center and onsite EV manufacturing partners. The firm will also use influencer-based marketing of new energy and used cars to leverage the impact influencers have on big ticket purchases in Asia.
The MEG Center is a one million square foot EV expo center which will house partners ranging from EV manufacturers, EV battery manufacturers, energy storage, energy management, and EV charging solution providers, financial services, insurance companies, vehicle and license plate registration services, and others including a state of the art MEG Welcome Center.
Ideanomics said it will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the MEG Center in Qingdao in the summer in conjunction with its annual general meeting.
