Dahua Launches Electric Cars

Author: IPVM Team, Published on Nov 13, 2017

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

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.
