China auto sales are expected to hit 4 million units in 2006. This would make China the second biggest auto consumer in the world after United States and leaving Japan behind.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Xinhua News


"According to figures from the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, China's passenger vehicle sales soared to an all-time high of nearly 1 million units in the first three months this year.

Most of the automakers saw their sales surging by over 60 percent in the first quarter.

Shanghai General Motors sold 89,513 cars in the first three months, followed by Shanghai Volkswagen's 86,474 units. Chinese brand Cherry ranked the third selling 70,438 cars.

The report attributes the remarkable growth to strong market demand reinforced by the new tax regime that encourages the consumption of small cars.

China's passenger vehicle sales exceeded 3 million units for the first time in 2005. The report predicts that the sales of this year may hit 4 million units.

If that happens, China could overtake Japan to become the second largest motor consumer in the world, the report says."

Hence there is little reason for Chinese venders to export; their home market is large enough for them.
If they can compete with foreign auto giants at home, they can compete with them in other countries including the homes of the foreign auto giants.

Chinese venders are protected by 30%+ auto import duty at home yet Chinese market has become the battleground for foreigners.

The market you speak of are home ground of foreigners, where they don't pay any import duty and it is the Chinese who has to pay heavy import duty + shipping($1500 per vehicle).

You sure don't know a lot about China's situation.

Do you think a Guangzhou built Honda Accord requires $1500 to transport? and import duty? what are you talking about?

A China made Audi A6 costs much less expensive than an imported Audi A6.

China pretty much has all the major international auto brands being produced on Chinese soil and do not have to pay any import duty except for those imported parts.

A similar sum to bring in the parts via container.

and import duty? what are you talking about?
10% import duty on parts. This is why a Spark costs more than a QQ, even though actual manufacturing cost of Chery and GM Daewoo is about identical.

Both still cost way more than they do in EU and the US.

SInce foreigners have to import 60% of parts to build their cars in China, they are still badly hit by import duty. How do I know? They cost more in China than they do in EU and the US.

For your information, Guanzhou Honda, 96% of its parts are MADE in CHINA.

Mazda6, 75% China made parts.

Average China percentage for volkwagen is 80%.

For domestic market models only. And even most of those are from Japanese suppliers with factories in China.

For export models, 90% of parts are sourced from Japanese suppliers.

Chinese cars are not ready for export yet.

it doesn't matter if the parts are made by Japanese companies in China, IN CHINA is IN CHINA. you think all ther workers are japanese? you think the factory was entirely built by Japanese? arse. A small number of expats to bring the expertise in (typically 1 per 100 in the company, and even less when you consider sub suppliers, sub contractors etc).

anyway, the Japanese are not the benchmark - china should target the best cars in the world, such as trying to make a car that is faster than a FERRARI.

No no no. Targeting Ferrari would make one proud, but not wise.

The world auto industry is dominated by making the best cars the majority of the people would buy, not a handful of super-rich.

Even at the sizes of Toyota and Honda, exactly how many Ferrari-like cars do they have? None.

Camry and Accord are built in the US using US assembled parts from Japanese suppliers, yet no one ever argues that American cars could compete with Japanese cars on quality.

Now I know that you are not for real. You are nothing but a joke character.
