For a long time, China's car industry has been protected by the government through the high tariff rate and  the control on import. After the buffer period of China's WTO entry, things will be much different with freer competition being introduced into the industry.

In the past few years since the entry, we've seen the impact, and Chinese car manufacturers might have all felt the pressures - the pressure of raising the technology level and reducing costs and the pressure of price depreciation.

With WTO entry, China will have to cut automobile import duties to 25% by the year 2006. By then, more foreign car manufacturers will flock to seek business opportunities in China.  They will cut price and cost because this is the most effective means to enter a new market.

As a result, cars in China will sure experience a genreal wave of price cuts in 2006. So, the car you bought years ago might do not hold much value by then. It's a pity but an inevitable trend~

Many cars may cause traffic jams and I think governmet should raise the tax to limit the numbers.  I feel it strange too.

But oil is a "big fight" for it. Who pays more get it.

World is smart and changing to smaller cars.
But chinese are smarter, now opting for smaller cars with lesser fuel.


Good joke, Caring.

Chinese still in their majority value the car by a single factor - the volume of the cyllinders. The bigger the better. It will be time, before they get smart. And then ...later...may be....they will get smarter.

BTW these two sentences are funny realy. World is smart but Chinese are smarter , because some of them begin to be as smart as the world is.

From what I see on the streets in China -> SUV debilism and show off is now heads ahead of the smart , city car wisdom. I hope it will change in the following years.

Another, still theoretical possibility is to teach the teachers how to drive and how to teach  the applicants for the driving license, giving them some idea of  this incredibly difficult art.
