Charles "Right" Xiaolin Wang is the President and Chief Executive Officer at GreenTech Automotive. The company announced plans for a $1 billion green auto plant in Mississippi in 2010.[1] [2] Funding for the project depends on foreign investors using a U.S. program that allows foreign nationals to obtain residency in the U.S. and a path to citizenship in exchange for investments, as well as on government aid.[3][4][5][6][7][8] On August 31, 2009, Automotive News reported on a legal dispute between Yang Rong (a.k.a. Yung "Benjamin" Yeung) and Wang over the hybrid-electric car company. [9] Cars in production by the company will not be highway legal and will be for use on closed campuses or private community driving.[10][11]


In 2008, Wang was one of the founders of WM GreenTech Automotive (GTA). He is also the company’s President and Chief Executive Officer. GTA is a company dedicated to the research, development, marketing, and production of theft resistant, energy efficient, affordable hybrid vehicles.[12] GTA announced its project in October 2009 with a ceremonial groundbreaking event,[13] and said it was planning to build a 400,000-square-foot (37,000 m2) production plant in Northern Mississippi. Terry McAuliffe has also been involved in promoting the company and served as its chairman. Fundraising efforts involving foreign donors seeking green cards and citizenship under a Federal program have drawn scrutiny and have been a campaign issue in the 2013 election for Virginia governor.
