At present, China is not only the largest automobile market in the world, but also the largest new energy vehicle market in the world. more and more overseas brands hope to make some achievements in the Chinese market, but according to the current performance of the Chinese market, except Tesla, the performance of other overseas brands of new energy vehicles is mediocre. Today, the competitive environment facing China's electric car market is very different from that when Tesla first joined the bureau. At that time, Tesla stood out alone. Now the power pattern of car-building has initially stabilized, and the new energy brands of traditional carmakers are making efforts. Other overseas brands need to be prepared for a long battle if they want to get a piece of the fierce Chinese market.
