Canton fair is one of the most important launching and exhibiting platform for new Chinese bicycle, e-bike and e-scooter models for export, and every year is attended by many industry experts, purchasers, and importers from home and abroad. On April 15, the 117th spring canton fair was held as scheduled . China Bike & E-Vehicle (CBEV) participated in the whole process of the show, and visited the major bicycle and e-bike halls. The electric two-wheeled vehicle exhibitors seemed to attract more visitors than fuel motorcycles.
Yadea, as a leading Chinese EV brand, taking up 10 stands respectively at hall 13.1 and 16.2, of course, was one of the busiest exhibitors at the show. Following CBEV’s visit to Yadea to get to know how it comes to Yadea’s success today.
Yadea especially produces e-vehicles, but centers on two-wheeled models, and also three-wheelers. Started in 1997, without a long history, the company focuses on the EV business from the very beginning. Yadea pays special attention to develop reliable dealers from the start of business, which is a key strategy for the domestic (Chinese) market. Up to now, Yadea already has more than 2000 dealers in the domestic market.
The Chinese market is the biggest market for electric scooters in the whole world, having a sales amount of about 30 million units and Yadea taking up 10% of the market. However, there are around 1000 different electric scooter manufacturer, small, medium or large size ones, which means competition is quite fierce. Yadea is now working on its brand image and product image, and call its Yadea brand “First class”. To follow this development strategy, Yadea changes its dealer’s shops in the domestic market to be like the “life-shop”.
They also have started building the dealer shop, the “4S” shop, integrating selling products and doing after-sales service in one shop. This mode of dealer shop will be applied to overseas if it is approved to be correct in domestic market.
For the overseas market, Yadea started export business in 2005 and began with EV exportation. Then with more and more overseas customers accumulated, the company is now looking to different kinds of products for different markets. What makes people choose Yadea’s e-vehicles rather than the petrol scooters? The company wins as a professional e-scooter manufacturer with a professional team in the field. To succeed in the international market, Yadea focuses on three aspects, products quality, after-sales service, and new technology. Besides the turkey market, Yadea is also successful with Eastern Europe countries, such as Hungary, Poland, Italy, and Romania. The brand is also planning on entering the Western European market and South America in the near future.
Yadea values its unique product R&D. X-man is a successful model with Yadea’s independent R&D technology and has won a good market recognition and acceptance. Yadea also cooperates with Italian and French design companies to bring out new products. Actually at Canton Fair, Yadea also brought a new sample model with Italian design and named Diamond which will be put into main production in May.

Among the most tremendously popular models at the scene, MIKU , a smart lithium-ion battery e-bike, attracted a large number of domestic and foreign young visitors, although it was not the first time that we saw it at Canton Fair. The e-bike looks really smart, innovative, futuristic, yet easy to ride. MIKU is claimed to be the world’s first e-bike that can be ridden by standing, sitting, or sliding on it. The small-and-light looking appearance, multi-functional intelligent LCD meter panel, smartphone app and music player system, foldable saddle and adjustable handlebar, LED decorative light, and fashionable color and decal all contribute to the freshness and uniqueness of this mini e-bike. This is the kind of product that fits into the modern life for amusement.
SUNRA has been seeking to make up the shortcomings of traditional e-bikes by using intelligent technology, and for that aspect SUNRA has made great progress. We can see modern technical systems used on a series of its intelligent e-bikes. For example, GPS anti-theft technology is used on MIKU, and it can be locked and unlocked from remote control by smartphone. We expect to see more surprises from SUNRA.
