Chinese Car Brands Dominate the Domestic Market: Are Joint Venture New Energy Vehicles No Longer Competitive?

In the competitive arena of China’s automotive market, domestic car brands have surged ahead, particularly in the new energy vehicle (NEV) sector, marking a significant shift in market dynamics as of 2023.
