Kandi EVs to Be Placed on the Italian Market

JINHUA, CHINA--(Marketwire - January 27, 2011) - Kandi Technologies, Corp. (NASDAQ: KNDI) ("Kandi" or the "Company"), announced today that, based on the quality assurance certifications its Electric Vehicles (EVs) have received in Italy, the Company has signed a letter of intent with SHARE s.r.l. ("SHARE"), a Rome, Italy based EV distributor, for the initial purchase by SHARE of 1000 Kandi EVs. In order to promote the use of electric cars, the city government of Rome has authorized SHARE to engage in the "new energy" automotive importation business. SHARE anticipates a "warm welcome" for Kandi EVs in Europe and expects to sell the 1000 EVs in Italy in 2011.

Kandi noted it believes the fact that its pure EVs have received the quality certifications required to enter the European market -- where there are very strict technical and quality requirements for imported vehicles -- reflects well on the performance and quality of the Company's EVs. Also being recognized, in the Company's view, are the energy savings, environmental friendliness, convenience and practicality of its EVs, which the Company believes are bringing it closer to realizing its global ambitions in the not too distant future.

Additional information on SHARE is available on www.sharegroup.it.
