If people are stupid enough to buy them.  ::)
After this pandemic along with all their other sins against the rest of the world, we should be boycotting them.

Nah - people will still buy whatever cr@p has the cheapest finance deal just to have something new on the driveway to keep up with the Joneses.

Whether it's a French, Italian or Chinese shitbox will not even cross their minds. ::)

The Chinese produced crap struggles to meet reasonable safety standards, thank God, so we don't get quite so much foisted on us.

The do deals with companies, build X amount and steal all the details and build a likeness of the original.

If they can't successfully copy cheap electronic components, they've no chance of producing a decent car :-X

But that is where you are wrong!  ;D ;D ;D

The best electronic components come out of China and have done for a long time.... it's the knock-off's which are sub-standard.  When China get their shit together in regards to copyright/plagiarism they will do very well for their reputation.

An S60 or 90 has far more appeal to me than any of the competitors, none of which are British owned. I'd buy an Evora over a Porsche, although an Elise or A110 would be a difficult decision.  Geely are responsible for the new London cab, which shares most of its mechanical and electronic parts with Volvo and other marques. When I first saw it I said it would make a good van, which is now available although it is expensive.


There's nothing stupid about buying the best option for you. Blind nationalism is a very different matter.

The Japanese story was the same 50 - 60 years ago. Everyone leaughed at them at first. They had the last laugh though when they put everyone else out of business.
China is doing the same , but its on a much bigger scale which to me is a serious worry.

Not actually true, and China is not the place to make electronic assemblies either.

They are doing well because they recognise this and don't rely on China to get the quality  :y

The Chinese know how to make chips for cars, though:

The shortage is because the manufacturers cut production and consequently cut back supply orders... The delays are self inflicted because it takes suppliers time to ramp up production.

Presumably they buy tightly regulated and controlled chips rather than the 500 container job lots that they foist upon the retail market as 'genuine' copies ::)

Not that that would make for a good headline :-X

look at Rover, even BMW couldn't make them stick.
BMW never wanted the Rover brand, they wanted the technology and the processes.
