The carmaker has been hurt by dwindling demand in China, the world's largest car market, and reduced government subsidies for electric vehicles.

Its cash balance of $151.7 million as of Dec. 31 was not adequate to provide the required working capital and liquidity for continuous operation in the next 12 months, the company said in a statement.
