Ministry of Industry and Information Technology: Do a good job in ensuring the supply and price of automotive chips and upstream raw materials, and carry out a new round of new energy vehicles to the countryside

Today, Guo Shougang, head of the First Division of Equipment Industry of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, said at the State Council’s regular policy briefing that in 2021, the consumer satisfaction of new energy vehicles has already equaled that of traditional fuel vehicles. Six of the top ten best-selling new energy vehicle models in the world are Chinese brand models. From January to May this year, the consumption of self-owned brand new energy passenger vehicles has also exceeded 80%.


According to reports, since the beginning of this year, due to factors such as the spread of the epidemic, the development of the automobile industry has been affected to a certain extent. Supporting the purchase and use of new energy vehicles is an effective way to stabilize and expand automobile consumption and ensure the smooth operation of the industry. In the next step, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will implement the requirements of “Several Measures to Energize Automobile Circulation and Expand Automobile Consumption”, and work with relevant departments to further expand the scale of new energy vehicle promotion.

One is to continuously improve the quality of product supply. Continue to improve the safety technical standards of new energy vehicles, improve the performance level of power battery thermal runaway alarm, safety protection, low temperature adaptation, etc., so that consumers can buy and use with confidence. Promote the integrated development of electrification and intelligent networking technologies, develop more service functions suitable for consumers, continue to improve the driving experience, and generate more purchase demands.

The second is to actively create a good use environment. Strengthen industry operation monitoring, research and judgment, do a good job in ensuring the supply and price of automotive chips and upstream raw materials, and make every effort to ensure the smooth and stable supply chain of the industrial chain. Implement the requirements of the State Council to steadily increase the consumption of automobiles and other bulk consumption, and encourage places where conditions permit to introduce gold-rich consumption promotion policies. Quickly study and clarify supporting policies such as the continuation of tax incentives for new energy vehicles, optimize the “double points” management method, and effectively connect with the decline of subsidies. Carry out a new round of new energy vehicles to the countryside, organize the implementation of pilot cities for comprehensive electrification in the public sector, speed up the construction of charging and swapping facilities, and promote information sharing and unified settlement.

IT House learned that in response to the local protection of the new energy vehicle market, Guo Shougang said that the “Opinions on Building a National Unified Market” issued in March 2022 clearly proposed “speeding up the elimination of various regulations and laws that hinder the unified market and fair competition. The “Anti-Monopoly Law” stipulates that no discriminatory measures shall be set against foreign products, and the “Several Measures” also propose that no local model filing catalogue and unreasonable vehicle parameter indicators shall be set. “In the early stage, we have cooperated with relevant departments to carry out special inspections on local protection issues. In the future, we will strengthen the supervision and inspection of local policies and measures, and promote the construction of a large national market that is efficient, standardized, fair competition, and unified and open, so as to provide large-scale new energy vehicles in my country. Create a good environment for development.”
