Recently in the British car media perspective article pointed out that China will soon become the world‘s main electric car production base, a growing number of car manufacturers made the strategy of development of electric vehicles in the Chinese market. Also, the BBC Chinese website 15 reported that Britain‘s benchmark mining intelligence (a collection price data and evaluate the supply chain of the lithium battery industry), general manager, said Simon Moore lithium battery industry in China is becoming the world‘s strongest. In a recent interview with Chinese media, he said that there was a big lithium battery plant, and that much of the new capacity was concentrated in China.
Simon Morse said, although very large lithium battery factory started tesla, but China‘s lithium battery manufacturing giants such as byd, new energy (ATL) and lishen 70% of the new factory is located in China.
The world‘s largest manufacturing base for lithium-ion batteries
we also see Japanese and Korean manufacturers building giant factories in China,‘ he added. China‘s lithium-ion battery capacity will be 62% of the world‘s total by 2020.
According to the UK‘s benchmark mining intelligence, China‘s lithium battery plant now produces 16.4 GWh, and the total output will reach 107.5 GWh by 2020.
The increased demand for electric vehicles has increased the government‘s demand for energy-saving lamps and other factors that have contributed to the development of the lithium battery market.
“The global market is undergoing rapid changes, with smaller batteries moving towards big electric vehicles.” “The increase in electric bikes in China is also an important factor,” Mr. Morse said. “the replacement of gasoline engine cars by electric vehicles will be a key change.”
He also said that when a charge can travel 230 miles (370 km) above the electric vehicle, and the price is reasonable, so the electric car market was really ushered in the big development period. He predicts that these will be done in three years.
Morse said, lithium battery of investment and cooperation with major technology companies to build new type of electric vehicles in China is very important, can let keep the leading position in China.
“China could become the world‘s main the production base of Chinese and western brand electric bike. In the case of cooperation, China will firmly seize the opportunity.”
The ford motor company has just announced plans to develop an electric car in China. Ford plans to move 70 per cent of electric cars to China by 2025.
Reported that tesla $2016 in 7 billion sales of $1 billion in China, the company‘s President, said in a few years China will be the lion‘s share of the company‘s global sales.
Volkswagen‘s President recently said his new I.D. electric car was designed to take into account China‘s market. It plans to sell 1m electric cars a year in China by 2025.
At the same time. Byd, a Chinese electric car maker, has had an impact in the us market, selling electric buses and electric trucks to customers. Byd is backed by warren buffett and Berkshire hathaway.
Auto analysts say there are two main reasons for the development of China‘s electric car market. One is China‘s surplus population proportion of the population expansion, they hope to drive such as tesla this luxury electric cars, because the car can more durable, strong power, and image well.
Another reason is demographics. More and more Chinese people are moving into supersized cities, enjoying better education and training, and farmers getting into the big cities. These people need transportation outside the railroad and bus, and small electric cars are better suited for their use in crowded cities.
