BEIJING (AP) — Chinese automaker Zotye Auto said it plans to start selling vehicles in the United States in 2020.

Zotye said it will work with an American partner, HAAH Automotive Holdings. The companies said Wednesday the first model for the U.S. market will be an SUV but gave no details.

Zotye joins Chinese automakers that have announced ambitions to enter the U.S. market. The privately owned company headquartered in Hangzhou, southwest of Shanghai, also is developing electric vehicles with Ford Motor Co. for the China market.

General Motors Co. and Sweden's Volvo Cars export Chinese-made vehicles to the United States. China's BYD Auto sells battery-powered buses to U.S. transit companies.

Other Chinese brands have announced U.S. sales plans but have struggled to meet safety and emissions standards.
