Electric cars have become the key for major car brands to return to the market. With the continuous expansion of the new energy vehicle market, domestic automobile brands have gradually come to the fore in the new round of automobile industry competition and become an important force to promote the development of the new energy vehicle market. In addition, more and more overseas car companies are working with Chinese manufacturers to develop new energy vehicle technologies to reduce costs and improve efficiency. Through these ways, it is also expected to turn against the wind in the new round of competition in the automobile industry.
