Tesla will open a manufacturing plant in China

Le 20 novembre 2017, 07:08 dans Humeurs 0

Tesla has struck a major deal with China. According to various reports, Tesla will soon begin construction of its first electric car plant in China.

The new manufacturing plant will be set up in Shanghai’s free-trade zone. This is highly significant, because it would allow Tesla to wholly own the factory rather than going into a joint partnership with a Chinese manufacturer, which is a standard condition outside the free-trade zone.

Since the factory is in the free-trade zone, the deal would also mean that Tesla would be exempt from the kind of technology sharing clauses that have typically deterred some other foreign investors.

However, whilst the free-trading zone would help in reducing Tesla’s production costs, Tesla would still be subject to a 25% import tariff. Though it would still likely boost Tesla’s sales in China, where Tesla was estimated to have sold $1 Billion worth of cars in China in 2016. One way Tesla could get around this tax is to offer up some kind of technology-sharing clause.

The deal, which Tesla has been actively pursuing for a while now, is thought to come into focus in June 2018 and even with a 25% tax Tesla would still be able to expand and increase its brand and global market share.

 

However, there does appear to be space for negotiation on this tax. In March, the European Union Chamber of Commerce lodged a complaint with regards to China’s joint-ownership policy, claiming it is far too insular. The fact that Tesla is unequivocally seen as the world’s most popular and innovative Electric car manufacturer could place political pressure on the Chinese government to alter its policies as a means of trying to truly realize its goals of becoming an electric-only vehicle manufacturer.

China’s Electric Car Push Lures Global Auto Giants Despite Risks

Le 27 octobre 2017, 15:51 dans Humeurs 0

German auto giants, including Volkswagen and Daimler are pushing for a rapid electric car expansion. This major jump in production will utilize the growing Chinese manufacturing market.

Electric cars are also subject to CCC Certification

China is the perfect market for electric cars. Not only has China pledged to eventually ban gasoline and diesel powered fueled vehicles in the future. They are also heavily investing in electric car technology and infrastructure.

The Chinese administration is doing everything to lure in big auto giants. There are several reasons for this. First and foremost, it will help in positioning China as a major manufacturing player in electric vehicle technology.

Secondly, the Chinese government is producing laws and placing provision on these foreign automakers to work in tandem with local Chinese companies. Meaning that the Chinese auto giants will gain new insight and technology to bolster their own home-grown manufacturing.

Admittedly, some foreign auto giants have expressed concern about sharing technology, though the pay-off for having access to the commercial Chinese auto market, the largest auto-market in the world, is highly important for boosting their own sales.

Notably, Hubertus Troska, the chairman and chief executive of greater China at Daimler said, “We will increase it even further — we’re honestly not very concerned about the tech transfer.”

This I.P. sharing isn’t just crucial in terms of the electric car market. As per the China 2025 roadmap, China aims at becoming a major player in several areas, including (but not limited to) Robotics, AI and emerging technologies more generally. And whilst there remains some controversy as to the dangers of sharing tech secrets in the long-term, many companies are looking to China to super-charge their short term gains.

From September 15 to 17, 2017, the annual meeting of the CCAP Lead Auditors took place in Beijing.

 

The annual meetings are used to convey the most recent changes to the regulations and serve as a general exchange of experience and for training purposes.

 

The focus of this year ‘s meeting was, among other things, the further harmonization of regulations. In addition, a better control of the audit risk was stepped up as well as the further training of additional or existing auditors to further improve the quality of audits and CCC certification.

 

During the three-day conference, a large number of real practice examples were discussed in order to inform and educate the auditors about common problems or rare cases. Special attention was paid to the difficulties of CCC audits abroad.

 

 

 

 

 

As a result, CCC audits outside China are likely to be further tightened. In order to continue to live up to the constant intangible change of guidelines and interpretations, the support of experts will continue to be of great value in the future.

 

With more than 200 CCC audit per year, MPR China Certification GmbH is the leading company in the field of CCC certification.
