Dahua Launches Electric Cars

Author: IPVM Team, Published on Nov 13, 2017

Embattled mega video surveillance manufacturer Dahua is now electric car manufacturer Dahua.

Let the jokes begin:

But is the joke on Dahua's critics here? Dahua has plans for its electric car business to quickly dwarf its video surveillance one.

Is Dahua just crazy or crazy like a fox?

In this note, we examine the financials behind Dahua's electric car business, its sales projections, and impact on Dahua's now legacy video surveillance business.
