BYD outperforming European brands

China outperforms Euro brands

>An IT manager Janssen eventually settled on a seemingly unconventional choice: the Atto 3, a compact sports utility vehicle from Chinese automaker BYD. It was a decision, Janssen says, that came down largely to price. "The offer from BYD was about 20% lower than the Volvo," Janssen recalls.

The company also offered a number of other "goodies" such as free charging for two years. Until recently, most Europeans had never even heard of BYD, or other Chinese automakers such as Nio or Geely.
>With the expertise acquired from joint European manufacturing projects, China is pouring tens of billions of dollars into developing its own auto companies with hefty subsidies and tax breaks.

      In China. They are selling the cars to themselves, registering them and ditching them in masive lots where they rot away. All to inflate production numbers for the party meetings.

      Manufacturers aren't even providing most of the jobs to Europeans, they don't need these companies anymore.

      Europe is best set up for universal basic income and then they can buy Chinese EV cars more conveniently.

      end up buying cheap Chinese EVs
      they aren't cheap. Chinks aren't moronic, they aren't selling them as cheap as they are in China, they are barely cheaper than euro made EVs.

        This, Chinese brands are premium products. German cars like the Mercedes A-class and BMW 1-series were built to be sold to the lowest common denominator.

          they aren't premium, how did you conclude that? I said they are just barely cheaper than euro brands. Because why would you sell car for 15k euros when it will sell same for 30k

      No.
      But there is still a large difference between buying a Maxus(essentially subcontracted VAG) to buying a Nio, BYD or Hongshi.

      So while Honda is building fricking moronmobiles, Ford is building bricks, and VAG still can't get normal weight on their skateboard chassis.... there is genuinely a chance.
      At the least BYD + Nio means they might offer some acceptable form factors, and do something interestiing. But jesus fricking christ, don't buy a fricking Maxus.

    >The automaker launched the Qin Plus Honor Edition with three significant refreshes. The DM-i (PHEV) version starts at 79,800 yuan ($11,000) with up to 120 km (74 mi) NEDC all-electric range.
    This would alone would kill so many car companies if they could sell at that price everywhere. After shipping and import taxes and tariffs it's still probably a contender for a pleb car.
