The Chinese car manufacturers are trying to gain a foothold in the UK with their Electric vehicles. MG, a Chinese manufacturer, achieved revolutionary sales in Europe right from the first quarter. MG’s ZS EV small SUV accounted for around 10% of the UK’s EV sales in the first quarter, which made MG the third bestseller when it comes to battery-powered models right after Tesla and Nissan.

MG had switched to Chinese ownership back in 2005 and had since lost its foothold in the UK and Europe. When MG launched its ZS EV last year with a very competitive price, this scenario changed. Once again, MG has made its way into the UK and Europe and is already selling in Italy, France, Netherlands and Norway. Daniel Gregorious, the MG’s Sales and Marketing Manager for the UK, expressed that if it weren’t for the electric vehicles, making it to the European market would have been much more difficult.

Other car manufacturers besides the MG are also hoping that the country’s expertise and expertise in electric propulsion may be just the right facilitator for pursuing the European customers to consider buying a Chinese Car.

BYD is also returning to the European market with its electric Tang SUV. Other startups like Aiways and Bytonare are also launching their EVs, U5 SUV and M-Byte crossover, respectively, in the European markets. May other Chinese brands are also on their way to launching their EVs in the European market.

Golden Opportunity for Chinese Automakers

The outstanding government incentives regarding the EVs and the reluctance of the European brands to sell more EVs than needed for fulfilling the emission regulations has opened the doors of opportunities for the Chinese car manufacturers to launch their EVs in Europe. According to the experts, Chinese automakers have a window of five years for breaking into the market before the circle closes again.

This window will close in 2025 as new CO2 reduction targets will come into effect after that, and the European carmakers will be made to amplify their EV sales beyond that. However, Chinese automakers are also shy and reluctant of coming to Europe after they failed so many times in luring Europe’s choosy car buyers into buying their cars. 

New Approaches for retail plans

Chinese automakers, after failing miserably in Europe with their previous attempts, have come back with a solid plan with different approaches this time. MG and BYD, for instance, are targeting the EV friendly markets only where there is little to no chance of failure. Both of these brands are relying on a traditional deer network; this time, other Chinese companies are focusing on online sales via famous stores in the big city centres. For instance, Aiways has collaborated with Euronics, a prominent retail chain that focuses on the branded consumer electronics, for leasing their U5 for test drives in Germany to start with. For the servicing and maintenance, Aiways has collaborated with Germany-based Auto-Teile-Unger (ATU) so that none of the fronts is left uncovered this time.

Bottom Line

With the golden door of opportunities open and new approaches by the Chinese automakers this time around, the chances are that the Chinese Electric Vehicles might make a comeback to Europe and UK finally. With the Chinese brands taking extra precautions this time and taking every possible step to cover the before sales and after-sales fronts, they may become successful in gaining a foothold in the UK this time around.
