Chinese car manufacturing-Indigenous brands struggle to export
Indigenous Chinese car manufacturing has undergone rapid development in recent years. Some leading companies are now seeking to export cars, marking a major change in ambition. Manufacturers are helped by the scale of the domestic market, rising wages and greater levels of aspiration among consumers. Chinese companies are now hoping to catch up rivals in California in driverless and connected car technology. However, the obstacles to becoming a car exporting nation are many. Whilst there is reason to believe difficulties can be overcome, doing so will require a lot of work in the industry.
