Key Points from the Roundtable Discussion on Exporting New Energy Vehicles (NEVs) and Charging Infrastructure to Overseas Markets:


The roundtable discussion focused on the opportunities and challenges in exporting NEVs and the charging infrastructure to global markets. With the global consensus on low-carbon sustainable development, there is a significant opportunity for NEVs as many countries have set carbon neutrality goals. However, challenges in standardization, market differences, data security, and battery safety need to be addressed.

To succeed in overseas markets, Chinese companies could adopt differentiated strategies, understand local preferences, and establish comprehensive service systems. Collaborating with local companies and forming alliances can help overcome challenges and create cost-effective solutions. The discussion emphasized the importance of focusing not only on hardware but also on backend services, mobile payment methods, and customer experience. The overall environment for NEV export presents both opportunities and challenges, making strategic planning and product quality crucial. The discussion encourages Chinese companies to adapt to different regions and collaborate with local players to thrive in the global NEV industry.

  • Global Opportunity: The global consensus on low-carbon sustainable development provides a significant opportunity for NEVs.
  • Challenges: Challenges in the charging aspect include standardization, regional market differences, data security, and environmentally friendly firefighting agents for battery fire safety. Overseas challenges involve ensuring product quality matches leading brands, understanding different user bases, and addressing charging infrastructure deficiencies and power shortages.
  • Differentiation: The key to success in overseas markets lies in differentiation, where the service experience and backend services become crucial differentiators even in the face of potential product homogenization.
  • Localized Strategies: To succeed in foreign markets, companies must understand and adapt to the unique characteristics, user preferences, and regulations in each region, emphasizing localized strategies.
  • Collaboration: Collaboration with established local companies and forming alliances are essential approaches to overcome challenges in establishing service systems and create cost-effective solutions for global expansion.
