New energy cars are coming towards us with an unstoppable momentum.China has become the world's largest market for new energy vehicles, and major brands have launched a fierce "championship competition" around the market sales volume. At present, in the field of new energy vehicles, there are not only new Internet forces, but also traditional automobile manufacturers. Many brands are competing for the lead, and a war is imminent.According to the latest auto sales statistics released by the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, the production and sales of new energy vehicles in 2017 reached 794,000 and 777,000 respectively, both with year-on-year growth of more than 53%. New energy vehicles accounted for 2.7 percent of the market in 2017, and the sales growth of new energy vehicles in China is expected to reach 40 percent this year, making it the biggest bright spot in the auto industry.
Behind the rapid deployment of new energy vehicles by many corporate giants is the prevalence of environmental activism, fuel vehicles are about to meet a turning point in development. At present, many cities around the world have imposed restrictions on fuel vehicles. Paris, Madrid, Athens and Mexico City have all proposed banning diesel cars from their roads by 2025. London and other cities will establish zero-emission zones.
In this case, gas-powered vehicles will no longer be popular, while electric vehicles and shared vehicles will undoubtedly rise to prominence and occupy an increasingly important position in the market. In terms of China's new energy vehicles, there is still a big gap between Domestic automobile enterprises and developed European and American countries in core technologies such as motors, batteries and electronic control systems. The lack of core technologies has become the weakness of domestic independent brands, and it is urgent to break through technical bottlenecks and achieve leap-forward development.
In the future, new energy vehicles will have the following development trends:
First of all, new energy vehicles will appear the development trend of "acceleration". Although the annual sales volume of new energy vehicles is only over 700,000 now, with continuous technological breakthroughs, increasing awareness of environmental protection and the support of macro policies, the future is promising. Moreover, from a worldwide perspective, many developed countries have begun to restrict fuel vehicles, which indicates that new energy vehicles will develop at an unstoppable speed. If Chinese car companies can take the lead in making technological breakthroughs in motors, batteries, electronic control systems, etc., they are expected to overtake cars on curves. In this sense, new energy vehicles provide an opportunity for Chinese auto companies to catch up with multinational giants.
Secondly, the combination of new energy vehicles and autonomous driving technology is an irresistible trend. At present, autonomous driving technology has become a new wind, many domestic technology giants have invested heavily in research and development, has made important progress. In the future, with the continuous progress of new energy vehicle technology, major car companies are expected to take autonomous driving technology as a new profit growth point, so the organic combination of the two will become a trend of industry development.
Thirdly, pure electric vehicles are expected to become the ultimate development goal of new energy vehicles. From the perspective of environmental protection, pure electric vehicles are the ultimate goal of new energy vehicles. In reality, the development of motor and battery technology is a long-term process, which requires scientific research institutes and enterprises to strengthen technological research and development, strengthen cooperation, and jointly promote the breakthrough of motor and battery technology.
At present, new energy vehicles favored by policy support and capital have entered a period of vigorous development, and accelerating the realization of core technology breakthrough has become an arduous task facing many automobile enterprises. Who can take the lead to overcome technical difficulties, who will be able to seize a favorable position in the fierce competition in the market as firm as a rock.
