China Car Dilemma

China is set to be the largest producer of electric cars with their quality and prices also making them very competitive. With their continued import the UK could reach the 2030 target of no more petrol and diesel new cars. However, if unchecked their affordability and quality could have a detrimental effect on UK car production. There is the dilemma. Should the Government impose import tariffs to reduce numbers and increase prices but risk not meeting the 2030 emissions target?

I'm always up for a challenge but wary of the opposition. Yes, we should compete but I fear failure due to mismanagement, plundering by business interests and a questionable commitment from the UK workforce. The immense size and low cost of Chinese labour are always going to be high hurdles to jump over.

What are your thoughts?
