Driven by the hot sales of new energy vehicles, power batteries and raw materials have been rising since the beginning of this year, new energy manufacturers have tightened their preferential policies on sales channels, and consumers' expenses for buying new energy vehicles have also increased, while the profitability of manufacturers has declined. obviously, this is not a virtuous circle.
The cost of new energy vehicles in China is still on the high side, Xin Guobin, vice minister of industry and information technology, said in a video speech at the 2021 World New Energy vehicle Congress on Sept. 17. Power batteries are facing lithium, cobalt, nickel and other mineral resources security and price rising pressure, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will work with relevant departments to speed up the overall planning and improve the guarantee capacity.
The development of China's new energy vehicle industry still faces a series of challenges, and there are many shortcomings of its own, including: "the vehicle cost of new energy vehicles is still on the high side, and the safety, reliability, low temperature adaptability and convenience of use still need to be improved. The recycling channel of power battery of new energy vehicle is not smooth enough, and the power battery of new energy vehicle is facing the guarantee of mineral resources such as lithium and the pressure of rising price, and so on. In the future, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will adhere to systematic thinking, strengthen coordination and coordination of work, and formulate a series of policies and measures to promote the integrated development of China's new energy vehicles with energy, transportation, information and communications and other fields. At the same time, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology also needs to improve the guarantee capacity of key resources such as lithium, cobalt and nickel, improve the recovery and recycling system of power batteries, strengthen the promotion and application of new energy vehicles, and strengthen support in integration and innovation and prevention of safety risks.
