Everything You Need to Know About China’s Electric Vehicle Industry in 2022

November 6, 2022


China’s electric vehicle industry has been growing at a rapid pace, particularly in the last few years. In 2018, the China electric vehicle market became the world’s largest, and it continues to grow as we enter into 2019 and beyond. This article offers everything you need to know about China’s EV industry in 2022, including sales, forecasts, and manufacturer growth projections.

The Electric car market: The present

In China, the top EV companies are BYD, Chery, Great Wall, and SAIC. All four of these companies have a strong presence in the Chinese market and are expected to continue to do well in the coming years. The Chinese government has been investing heavily in electric vehicle infrastructure, with over 4,000 EV charging stations already built and more planned for the future. This is part of the reason why China is expected to be the leading market for electric vehicles by 2023.

China is projected to account for 57% of all EVs sold globally, while accounting for 30% of global car sales. China currently ranks third in the world behind Norway and France in terms of EV ownership. Norway ranks first because it has embraced EVs more than any other country on Earth and France ranks second because they offer generous subsidies that make EVs very affordable to consumers.

China will soon surpass both countries as the number one destination for EV purchases due to its incentives, robust charging network, and consumer preference.

It’s important to note that China’s electric car market only accounts for 0.6% of total automotive production in China – which means there is still plenty of room for growth!

The competitive landscape

China is the world’s largest market for electric vehicles and the Chinese government is investing heavily in the industry. In order to succeed in China’s EV market, it is important to understand the competitive landscape. There are a number of big players in China’s EV market, including BYD, Geely, and Chery.

These companies have a significant advantage over foreign companies due to their local knowledge and connections. However, there are also a number of smaller, nimbler companies that are making a name for themselves in China’s EV market. When it comes to succeeding in China’s EV market, it is important to have a good understanding of both the big players and the up-and-comers. The following list summarizes some of the major electric vehicle companies in China:

BYD One of China’s most famous electric vehicle manufacturers.

Geely The company behind Volvo, with experience across multiple industries such as manufacturing and distribution.

Chery – One of China’s first successful private automakers; most well known for its QQ model car.

NIO A new company founded by former Google and Tesla executives who aim to provide more affordable cars; sells cars through its own dealerships (in contrast to using third party dealerships).

Foton Motor Company Ltd.- Established 1978; one of China’s top automotive suppliers with an extensive portfolio spanning engines, transmissions, axles and other parts & components.

Where China wants to be

In 2022, China wants 30% of its vehicles to be electric. To achieve this, the Chinese government has been investing heavily in the electric vehicle industry, and it’s paying off. In 2020, China produced over 1.3 million electric vehicles, accounting for nearly 40% of the world’s total. And that number is only going to grow in the coming years.

China plans to have an even higher proportion of electric cars on the road by 2030: The goal is 50%. China wants one-third of new car sales in China to be EVs by 2025. The country also plans on ending production of fossil fuel-powered cars as soon as possible. China’s electric vehicle industry is doing well thanks to heavy investment from the government. China also announced a plan to end production of fossil fuel-powered cars as soon as possible, which will likely help promote EV use even more.

China does seem committed to green energy and sustainable transportation; if they follow through with their promises, China could become a leader in the EV market!

The electric car market in 2019

In 2019, the electric car market in China was worth about $25 billion. By 2025, it is expected to be worth $77 billion. The Chinese government has been investing heavily in the electric vehicle industry, and as a result, there are now over 1,200 companies making electric vehicles in China.

The majority of these companies are small and medium-sized enterprises. However, there are also a few large multinational corporations that have entered the market. The high demand for electric vehicles has resulted in a need for more battery production capacity. In order to meet this demand, several new battery factories have been built in China.

A few international companies have already established their presence in China’s EV industry by setting up joint ventures with local partners. Tesla announced plans to build its first factory outside the United States in Shanghai in 2018.

China’s ambition: As the world’s largest automobile market and home to some of the world’s biggest manufacturers (including BYD Auto Co., Ltd.), China has a major stake in how global transportation evolves during this century.

How this affects foreign companies

The Chinese electric vehicle industry is currently booming and is only expected to grow in the coming years. This presents a unique opportunity for foreign companies who are looking to enter the market. However, there are a few things to keep in mind.

First, the Chinese market is very different from other markets and requires a different approach.

Second, the Chinese government provides a lot of support for domestic companies, so foreign companies will need to be able to compete on that front.

Third, electric vehicles are still a relatively new technology, so there may be some challenges when it comes to infrastructure and consumer education.

Fourth, Chinese consumers tend to be very price-sensitive, so companies will need to offer competitive pricing.

Fifth, China has been going through rapid industrialization which has led to severe air pollution problems. Therefore, the government has been pushing for more environmentally friendly technologies as an alternative to traditional fossil fuels.

Finally, China also has a population of about 1 billion people and a growing middle class with high expectations. Thus, companies will need to pay attention to consumer needs in order to succeed in this market.


How this will change by 2028

In China, the electric vehicle industry is booming and is expected to continue growing rapidly over the next few years. By 2028, almost half of all vehicles on the road will be electric. This shift will have a huge impact on the environment, as well as on the economy and society as a whole. China is leading the way in this transition, and other countries are sure to follow suit.
