Recently, China’s new energy vehicle companies, such as Ideal, Weilai, and Xiaopeng, have frequently appeared in public. In addition to the rising oil prices this year, the market has a new discussion on new energy vehicles. 

At the end of last month, after the release of the ideal new car, the car booking was very busy, and its market value was close to 300 billion yuan. Many traditional car companies have joined the battle for new energy, and even Huawei has entered the competition track. 

Internationally, BYD’s new energy vehicle sales in the first half of 2022 officially surpassed Tesla’s, becoming the number one car company in the world’s new energy vehicle sales in the first half of the year.

Since March, many China new energy vehicle companies have announced price increases. According to data from the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, car sales in May fell by 12.6% year-on-year. Still, new energy vehicle sales increased by 105.2%, and new energy vehicle prices and sales doubled. It reflects the market of new energy vehicles is excellent.

According to Wang Zhigang, Minister of Science and Technology, China’s new energy vehicle production and sales have ranked first worldwide for seven consecutive years.

Market expectations for new energy vehicles are also high. New energy industry research institutions predict in the “New Energy Vehicle Market Long-term Outlook” that by 2025, global sales of new energy vehicles will exceed 20 million, of which China’s sales will be close to 1,000. 10,000 vehicles. By 2040, global sales of new energy vehicles are expected to exceed 73 million, of which China’s sales will exceed 22 million.

Oil prices rise – more Demand for new energy vehicles.

Due to various factors such as the Russian-Ukrainian conflict on the global energy market, global oil prices have continued to rise, and international oil prices have risen by about 50% this year. 

Since 2022, and the retail price of No. 95 gasoline has historically exceeded the 10-yuan mark. Rising oil prices to make many car consumers turn to new energy vehicles.

According to the “China Securities Journal,” on July 5, GAC Group released the June production and sales express report, and its car sales increased by 28% month-on-month. 

Among them, the sales volume of new energy vehicles increased by 19.3% month-on-month. In addition, the sales of BYD, Weilai, Lili and other car companies continued to rise. From the current situation, most car companies have gradually gotten rid of the impact of the previous epidemic, and their sales have further increased.

 An industry expert said that the second half of the year would usher in a period of intensive release of new vehicles, superimposed with favorable policies for automobile consumption, and sales of new energy vehicles are expected to continue to rise.

Demand for charging piles – will reach trillions of dollars

The growth in sales and ownership of new energy vehicles has also stimulated the Demand for charging.

l Bloomberg New Energy Finance predicts that by 2030, the global charging demand for new energy vehicles will reach 1,000TWh; 

l in 2040, the charging Demand for new energy vehicles will drive global electricity consumption to increase by 10% to 13%;

l in 2040, the cumulative investment in global charging piles Demand will reach trillions of dollars.

Charging piles have also been built all over China. On July 5, the Beijing Municipal Development and Reform Commission introduced the main content of the “Key Points of Energy Work in Beijing in 2022”, proposing that Beijing will build 20,000 charging piles for various types of electric vehicles this year.

At the same time, according to foreign media reports, electric car manufacturer Tesla had more than 35,000 super charging piles last month. Tesla has also built and opened more than 1,200 supercharging stations and 700 destination charging stations in mainland China, covering more than 370 cities and regions.

In order to implement the State Council’s policy of cultivating strategic emerging industries and strengthening energy conservation and emission reduction, the national policy also supports the development of new energy vehicles and has issued a subsidy policy for users who purchase new energy vehicles, as well as many favorable policies. 

For consumers, purchasing new energy vehicles has car purchase subsidies, tax reduction, unlimited travel, etc., further promoting the development of new energy vehicles.

According to the data, while traditional fuel vehicles are already exhausted, the penetration rate of new energy passenger vehicles has risen sharply from 5% in 2020 to 26% in May this year.

Automotive PCB companies 

In the current electric and intelligent development of automobiles, the traditional supply chain system will be broken and reshaped, while China is at the center of the development of electric and intelligent automobiles, and local supply chain manufacturers will rise accordingly.
