      if the manufacturers can't produce a likeable commercially viable EV then that would most definitely mean that no one wants EVs. if they were a good product then it would sell.

            ...But then the point is that no one wants chinese cars, or chinese EVs. This is like saying that if nobody wants chinese pickups then people have stopped buying trucks and don't want them anymore.

            I hate this site. you knew exactly what the frick I meant but because I didn't specifically type it how you wanted then we have to kill a thread because of it. of course I meant the chinese shit.

          "People" aren't buying them, companies are.
          Rental car companies and corporate fleet sales are the majority of tesla buyers- when you get that fancy tech job that includes a company car, it's a tesla.
          And there's all kinds of little ahit- members of congress get a $500 a month stipend to lease a vehicle- AOC leases a tesla for $499.
          If you pay attention to the charts floating around, the majority are "new vehicle registrations", not "private sales".

        For the most part it is Because of the Chinese. Dumbasses in the west thought that China would not try to use their vast minerals and loss leader practices (CCP paying companies the difference as to allow cars to be sold uber cheap) to make cheap EVs and take advantage of the EV push that was actually just trying to create and artificial Tesla-like jump in domestic brands. Also and partially due to Chinese EVs, but the limitations, low build quality, and ironic lack of innovation from EVs has caused them to be seen less favorably compared to hybrids as time goes one

          so it sounds like, in large part, its a failure of EVs in quality dept., across the board really.
          I mean yeah, Tesla EVs aint so great

            That is the big issue, tesla did the first initial innovation in the mid 2010s and from that pont the market didn't really innovate further. We were promised actual advancement and instead all we got was a model 3 but bigger. Quality is still bad, range is the same, charging is still too long and complicated for normies, nothing to address battery being drastically affected by climate, nothing to address cost of lithium batteries, nothing to address the possibility of lithium fires, and no country has a competent public charging system that isn't decorative at best. Meanwhile hybrids and PHEVs have leapfrogged in tech and continue to do so

            The ability to be so consistently wrong makes me think you are intentionally posting strawmans for yourself or other people to tear apart with ease.

            Yes. no excuse for the lack of continued innovation. So far seems EVs in produciton priomarily just pump and dump as hard as they can on a lame half ass product they never optimized or perfected.
            And another big thing, I think one thing the EV manufacturers and EV proponents have completlwey blown, is the atrocious lack of recharging infrastructure.
            One simply has to look back to see how blindingly fast the Gasoline and deisel fuiels refilling station infrastruxctuire was establish at the time ICE vehicles were being made commonplace across the USA after the turn of the century. with a decade or two after the public becoiming owners of personal private automobiles, gas staions and the refueling infrastructure was developed and established nationwide, between earlky 1900s and say, 1930s, 1940s, we had fueling stations practically everywhere.

            I realy dont see a campaign like that being doe for EV charging. Obviously what shoulf be establishged is home charging and chargign at places of work. I dont see that being pursued in any siginifcant or tangible.
            .ewither the indistry or the govt needs to get ahold of this and figure out the proper standardization and make it available. its beyond pathetic.
            but par for the course, cart before horse of the Greenies thinking and lack of planning

        Isn't that just related to VW trying to get a foothold in China? Might be too late given how things have been going for other western companies there, but at least the Germans are very punctually a few years behind.

        vw has massive foothold in china, through their joint ventures with SAIC and FAW. Many chinese even think VW is their local brand since it has been pressent in China since 1970ies

          Do they have any presence in the Chinese EV market?
          VW's own EVs haven't been all that exciting, weighing noticeably more than most competitors and not really performing any better either. I think they were using older battery tech from LG at least at some point; they might even get better stuff from China now.

    That's a side-effect of chinese perverted manufacturer incentives. If they can show CCP that their cars sell well, they get more aid. Doesen't matter if they themselves buy their own cars and let them rot.

    Article says 3.4m cars move through a year and that the parking lots hold 130k.

    Also the OP image is loading in china, not unsold vehicles in Europe.

    TLDR nothing burger

    If anything shows how cheap and efficient Chinese auto manufacturing and their ability to export has become.

    They are worse than normal cars in every single metric other than acceleration and it's illegal to floor them anyway, and every non braindead person knows that the only reason they are pushing them is so that the globohomosexual government can brick your car when you don't comply with homosexuality.

    Blame European dealerships.

    Chinese manufactures the car at $10k. BMW manufactures a similar EV at $40k. Both cars are sold at ~$50-60k at dealerships.

    The Chinese EVs could be moved if they were sold at a lower price point, but dealerships want those high profit margins. They don't care about units sold, but the amount they're sold for. All those cars sitting at the lot are sold to dealerships, but not to consumers.

    This doesn't affect Tesla, because they own their own stores. They can set whatever price they want to sell at. You ever notice that whenever Tesla announces a price drop, every other car brands follow? But they're never the ones who initiate first, and it's always Tesla? Same is happening in the US. When Tesla drops, everybody else follows. Ford ends up losing $100k per EV sold. And the $7500 government subsidy doesn't cover the entire loss per vehicle sold.
