Comment on Nio's William Li calls for cooperation in more divided world in Harvard speech (full text) by Glenn Bartusch

CN EV Post

China is the most open automotive market? Are we sure that this man has a firm grip on reality? Does he even have a grip on reality? Is he even aware that, in order to even sell cars in China, the communists force the foreign company to form a 50:50 joint venture with a Chinese, state owned company? That's not the definition of an "open market"!!! In fact, China's closed markets are the number one reason why investors are fleeing China in record numbers.

@GustavoMan627 In reply to GustavoMan627. You need to learn your history. I know you don't like studying, but you must learn. China has invested about $10 billion in their EV sector so far. In fact, the EU commission on unfair trade practices recently disclosed that the EV playing field is not fair because of this. Of course, when the EU initiates their tariffs against Chinese EVs, China is going to complain all the way to the UN.

MG ZS EV Long Range Review: $10,000 worth of reasons this compact electric SUV should be back on your shopping list

EV Central

Money talks and when it comes to the 2024 MG ZS EV Long Range electric compact SUV, it talks very loudly. What was $51,990 plus on-road costs just a few weeks ago has now been slashed to $46,990 drive-away, a saving of up to $10,000 in some states. More on that here. There’s no change to equipment or technical specification, but who needs that when the hip pocket nerve is being caressed so pleasantly?

It’s remarkable to observe the differences in leadership and business practices between William Li and American capitalists like Elon Musk. I have been following NIO/Weilai since its inception and I’m familiar with Li’s genuine effort to promote cooperation for positive global change and prosperity. Those who are against competition often resort to protectionism.
