“China energised”

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche is wrong to say consumers will ultimately decide the fate of diesel cars in China, Hendrik Ankenbrand writes in an opinion piece for Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. China is not a market economy and the government has decided in favour of e-mobility, he argues, adding that German carmakers’ plans “to push electric motors onto the billion-euro Chinese market,” are the minimum required to avoid heavy losses in the future.
