An electric car company linked to China's Evergrande is having trouble paying suppliers and will no longer sell new shares on the Shanghai stock exchange.

This comes as Evergrande's main real estate business is tanking. The company failed to make an $84 million interest payment last week and could soon default on its more than $300 billion in debt.

Here & Now's Tonya Mosley speaks with NPR Beijing correspondent Emily Feng for the latest.
