The Center for Chinese Studies presents a Faculty Presentation, featuring Professor Eric Harwit from the Department of Asian Studies. This talk first briefly explores some of the Chinese government incentives that have spurred the rapid growth of EV sales in recent years. It then describes the range of electric vehicle manufacturers based in China, their ownership composition, and the balance between the public and private sectors in vehicle manufacturing. Finally, it discusses a major American player, Tesla, and the role a leading US company can play to help level the playing field of electric car sales within China’s own borders.
