European Automobile Manufacturers Association calls on car companies to reduce dependence on Asia
Due to the lack of sufficient chips, car sales in Europe fell by 23% last month to the lowest level since 1995.
In response, Oliver Zipse, Chairman of the European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA) and CEO of BMW, warned that local automakers must reduce their dependence on Asian chips, otherwise the crisis of plant shutdowns in the entire region will be staged again.
This unprecedented crisis has revealed how fragile the (European) semiconductor supply chain is today. We need to reduce our dependence on overseas markets, especially Asia.
At present, most of the global chip production has been transferred to low-cost labor areas such as Asia, which makes the European region face a very high risk of supply interruption.

A few days ago, Lei Jun stated at the Xiaomi Group’s annual investment meeting that Xiaomi is expected to officially mass produce in the first half of 2024.
From Officer Lei’s announcement of the production of the car, to the completion of the registration of Xiaomi cars in September, the appearance of the “17 Arhat”, and to the various “buy, buy and buy” of Xiaomi in the automotive field, the process of Xiaomi’s car building is progressing in an orderly manner.
Xiaomi continues to gather puzzles on the road to build cars. From investing in power battery companies, filling up shortcomings in the field of autonomous driving, and then building a talent team, the thinking is becoming more and more clear.
Wang Min, an automotive industry analyst, believes that Xiaomi Motors is currently striving to make up for the shortcomings of technology and talents. These are two key puzzles of Xiaomi's car building.
Take the autonomous driving that Xiaomi currently values most. At present, Xiaomi has basically completed many key parts of the investment puzzle in this field.
▲List of investments in Xiaomi's autonomous driving field
Investing in upstream and downstream enterprises in the industrial chain is one aspect, and completing its own technological accumulation is another aspect of work.
Wang Min believes that continuous investment shows that Xiaomi has realized its own technical shortcomings, but the next work will be more challenging. Xiaomi Motors must complete the technology accumulation. (Future Automobile Daily)
Today's topic: Can you accept "deliver first, then reinstall"?
Yesterday Dong Chejun raised a question to everyone: Will female users pay for the pink car? I was thinking of attracting some female fans to answer, but finally found out that there is no female fan or something.
Only a "macho" like @艾格西 came out and said:
Maybe the pink car will capture more male users, yyds macho fan!
Dong Chejun was puzzled, hoping that he would really build a pink car.
▲Is this Gallardo yours?
Today, Dong Chejun wants to talk to you about the reduction and delivery. Under the background of the "difficult delivery" of automobiles, many manufacturers have launched a "delivery first, then reinstall" delivery plan. Do you think such a plan can do you accept? Come and express your ideas, Dong Chejun.
