China's campaign against climate change results in stricter rules in emission and this equates in manufacturing more electric-driven automobiles due to increasing demand. In an annual car show held in Detroit last week, experts predicted a brighter outlook for electric cars beginning 2017.
According to Jacques Aschenbroich, Valeo's chief executive, "car electrification is an irreversible trend." Many of today's car manufacturers are equally seeing the upward trend in electric cars.
"There is not a disagreement that the world is going electric," said Mary Nichols, Chairwoman of California Air Resources Board as quoted by Reuters.
She added that all automobile manufacturers are now investing in building electric models in all their product lines.
In Asia, China tops the list in emitting disastrous pollution and has since been intent in curbing the pollution it causes. Among the policies implemented in fighting off climate change are billions of worth of research and investment with subsidies as well as regulations to dissuade using cars powered by fossil fuels.
A report from Yahoo! said that any car manufacturer that is non-Chinese and is interested in investing in electric autos may forge a joint venture with any Chinese car manufacturer.
This move does not only meet an increasing demand in electric automobiles, but also solve the problem of China's poor quality of electric cars.
With partnership or joint venture between Chinese businessmen and foreign investors, China can learn a lot in honing their skills.
Brighter prospects on electric cars are especially seen in China which is predicted to produce a million cars in four years. In 2015, the country has already recorded an increase in sales by fourfold and 55 per cent more in 2016.
Despite the uptrend in electric cars, experts are pessimistic about the United States' stand. Gerard Detourbet, executive officer of Renault-Nissan, said to "look to China rather than the U.S. for future of electric cars."
