Data show that Zhidou Automobile is an electric vehicle brand founded by New Dayang Mechanical and Electrical Group, focusing on miniature electric vehicles. Lanzhou Zhidou, founded in July 2006, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Zhidou Electric vehicle Co., Ltd. In 2012, Lanzhou Zhidou's first electric car was launched, but due to lack of production qualification, it cooperated with Zhongtai Automobile and borrowed the production qualification to produce the first passenger car, but it came to nothing for various reasons.

In January 2015, Ninghai Zhidou Electric vehicle Co., Ltd. (later renamed "Zhidou Electric vehicle Co., Ltd.") was established as a joint venture by Xin Dayang Mechanical and Electrical Group, Geely holding Group, Ninghai Silverstone Investment Fund and GSR Ventures Fund. Relying on Geely holding, Zhidou Automobile has obtained production qualification, with sales of 25000, 24000 and 43000 vehicles respectively from 2015 to 2017.

In March 2017, the National Development and Reform Commission approved the Lanzhou Zhidou pure electric passenger vehicle project with an annual production capacity of 40,000 vehicles; in October of the same year, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology announced that Zhidou Automobile had entered the list of new vehicle manufacturing enterprises; at the end of 2017, Lanzhou Zhidou's products entered the recommended catalogue of new energy vehicles and obtained the production qualification of new energy vehicles. Unfortunately, the good times will not last long. As the state adjusts the subsidy policy for new energy vehicles, pure electric vehicles with mileage less than 250km will not be subsidized. Pure electric subsidies for driving range of 250-400km will be reduced from a maximum of 45000 yuan to 18000 yuan, and pure electric vehicles with driving range above 400km will be reduced from 50, 000 yuan to 25000 yuan. Affected by the policy, Zhidou car sales fell sharply, selling only 15300 vehicles in 2018, a year-on-year drop of 63.90%.

In 2019, Zhidou Motor went into bankruptcy and restructuring because of broken capital chain, huge debts and lawsuits. In December 2023, industrial and commercial changes took place in Zhidou Automobile, and New Dayang Mechanical and Electrical Group Co., Ltd., Geely Technology Group Co., Ltd. withdrew from the shareholder industry. Ninghai Zhidou Enterprise Management Partnership (limited partnership), Ninghai Zhidou business service partnership (limited partnership), three Gorges Ruiyuan Innovation Venture Equity Investment Fund (Tianjin) partnership (limited partnership), etc. Among them, Ninghai Zhidou enterprise management partnership (limited partnership) is the largest controlling shareholder, holding 16.2%. As a result, Zhidou Automobile returned to the market, and Zhidou Rainbow is the first model after the brand rejuvenation, and the new car will compete with Hongguang MINIEV models of the same level after its launch.

It should be noted that the current mini-car market competition is particularly fierce, such as Hongguang MINIEV, BYD dolphin / seagull, Wuling colorful fruit, Nezhu V, Ola good cat, Chery QQ ice cream and so on are all hot models in the market. As a new car with the same positioning minicar, it is worth thinking about how Zhi Dou Rainbow will seize the market with the above-mentioned models.

According to the plan, the Zhidou brand will launch eight models in the next three years and 16 models in five years.
