China is not only the world's largest producer of cars, with a production of 28 million vehicles in 2018, but also a world leader in the emerging global segment: the electric vehicle. Being in China today, competing and cooperating in electric vehicle development, means being in one of the most dynamic and innovative markets in the world. The skills, knowledge and know-how acquired in this country by component companies and vehicle manufacturers represent an invaluable competitive advantage for the development of their business in other markets and for global collaboration.
