As a result of an agreement between an Icelandic and Chinese company, Chinese-made electric cars and trucks will soon be sold in Iceland.
Morgunblaðið reports that GT group of Iceland and Foton International of China signed a business agreement in Beijing yesterday to begin the importing of electric vehicles made by the latter. Representatives from both companies met at the Icelandic embassy in that city to make the deal official.
