2017 China Time Annual Economic Countdown: Top 10 Automotive News
September 10, 2017 China International Automobile Industry Development (TEDA) International Forum Closes. Forum, aimed at some countries have formulated a stop production and sales of traditional energy vehicles timetable problem, Xin Guobin also responded, "Ministry of Industry recently started the relevant research, will work with relevant departments to formulate our timetable."
Officials of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology should make public statements in a dialectical way: on the one hand, they only mentioned "being considered for formulation" and have not yet formed an effective document in the actual demonstration and implementation. On the other hand, they mentioned that "other countries in the world are Setting a timetable ", in addition to the current proven German House initiative, more about fuel consumption and emission standards are expected.
From the above analysis is not difficult to see that the energy-saving emission reduction requirements of the car is indeed the trend of the times, but also the consensus of governments and auto companies across the country, but also promote the automotive industry an important indicator of upgrading. However, as far as "one size fits all" and "stop selling fuel trucks," it is extremely exaggerated and lacks reason.
5, the establishment of foreign-owned electric vehicles joint venture from two restrictions not less than 50% of Chinese shares,
June 28, the National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Commerce jointly issued the Catalog for the Guidance of Foreign Investment Industries (2017 Practicing), and the Catalog clearly states that starting from July 28, 2017, foreign investors will establish production of pure electric Automobile vehicle joint ventures will not be subject to the two restrictions. In addition, the Catalog of Guidance for Industries with Foreign Investment (2015 Revision) promulgated by the National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Commerce on March 10, 2015 shall be repealed at the same time.
Article 7 in the Catalog of Foreign-Funded Admittance-specific Management Measures Part 1 of the Measures for the Control of Foreign-Funded Investments restricts the directory of foreign-invested industries, which states: "Automobile vehicles and special-purpose vehicles Automobile manufacturing: Chinese shares should be no less than 50% The establishment of two or two joint ventures in China that produce similar vehicle products, such as the joint acquisition of other domestic automobile manufacturers with Chinese joint venture partners and the establishment of joint ventures for the production of pure electric vehicle products, are not subject to any restrictions. "
In fact, since the "Catalog" was promulgated, foreign businessmen started to make frequent moves in joint ventures for pure electric vehicles. Up to now, JAC and the public signed a joint venture agreement. The two parties will jointly set up a 50% -owned joint venture to conduct R & D, production and sales of new energy vehicles and provide related mobile travel services. Subsequently, Ford announced that it had signed a memorandum of understanding with Zotye to establish a joint venture in China for R & D, manufacturing, sales and service of pure electric passenger vehicles, which will produce pure electric vehicles using its own brands.
It can be seen that with the implementation of the new policy of "dual integration" of new energy in the Chinese market, the major car companies are all already considering the countermeasures. However, joining a ready-made new energy enterprise has become an important choice for some car makers abroad.
