Known as China’s Elon Musk, Li Xiang is shak­ing up the car in­dus­try with his elec­tric car start-up, Che­he­jia, which he founded in 2015. THE BIZ Li gath­ered US$120 mil­lion in the first round of fund­ing, and con­struc­tion of the fac­tory is to begin this year, with an ini­tial pro­duc­tion goal of 200,000 ve­hi­cles a year. WHY SO HOT? The revo­lu­tion­ary cars won’t rely on charg­ing points; they’ll have de­tach­able bat­ter­ies you can take home to recharge and they’ll be avail­able for both rent and pur­chase.
