When Shen Lang saw the overwhelming coverage of the news, great doubts arose in his heart.
With the general optimism of the domestic media, they believe that the electric vehicles made by Huaxia have superior performance. As long as they go to sea, they will be able to conquer the world. The strength of the European market.
With such doubts in mind, Shen Lang took the high-speed rail with his classmates and returned to Shanghai. After leaving his luggage in the dormitory, he washed his face and immediately came to the teacher’s office. Through the floor-to-ceiling windows, he saw It turned out that Luo Jia was discussing something with software president Li Moran.
Not long after, Li Moran left, and Shen Lang knocked on the door of Luo Jia’s office.
“You are back.” Luo Jia said with a smile, “There is good news. The software center has completed the bi project. Next, they will start to march towards the last bastion of general industrial software, EDA.”
Shen Lang was slightly taken aback, and his face showed joy. This is really good news. EDA is semiconductor design software, which is specially used to design various chips and processors. Once the EDA project is completed, Xingchen Technology will be able to enter the semiconductor industry naturally field again.
The five general-purpose industrial software are the foundation of all industrial software. With these foundations, countless kinds of more advanced special-purpose software can be extended.
For example, the software for designing missiles for the military only needs to extract some modules from the five basic industrial software, and then reorganize and optimize them.
In short, the five general industrial software are like the foundation of a building. When the foundation has been laid, if you want to build a Chinese-style, Western-style, or even surreal-style building, you only need to add bricks and tiles to the foundation. .
Luo Jia smiled and said, “You were in a hurry to find me when you came back, what’s the matter?”
Shen Lang frowned, “I’m a bit confused about the entry of electric vehicles into the European market. It seems too risky. After all, Europe is the most competitive market in the world. Volkswagen, BMW, Daimler, Fiat, Peugeot Citroen , Renault, not only these giants are headquartered in Europe, but even the North American auto groups General Motors and Ford have already shifted their focus to Europe.”
“Focus, Mondeo, Carnival, GM Hideo, etc. that everyone is familiar with, these models are actually designed and developed in Europe. Even the Japanese auto giants also have large investments in Europe. , in fact, its full name is Renault Nissan Mitsubishi United Group, which belongs to the deep cooperation between France and Neon.”
Shen Lang explained many reasons in one breath, and Luo Jia said calmly after listening, “Europe is indeed the most competitive auto market in the world, and we don’t have many cards in our hands, no matter Geely, BYD, or Great Wall, They all belong to the global small and medium-sized car groups, and their strength is not at the same level as those giants.”
“I am very clear about the situation, but you may have overlooked a detail. The distribution and after-sales system used in this European operation is the Volvo system under Geely. That is to say, whether Great Wall or BYD’s electric vehicles, They are all sold in Volvo’s specialty stores, and the after-sales service is also provided by the Volvo Group.”
Luo Jia reminded Shen Lang a little, then said nothing more, leaving room for Shen Lang to think.
The brain began to think quickly. Although Shen Lang knew the details of the distribution system in the news, he didn’t think much about it. After Luo Jia’s reminder, Shen Lang suddenly realized that this matter might not be that simple.
Luo Jia glanced at the perpetual calendar on the table, and said to Shen Lang, “The day after tomorrow will be October 1st, and then everything will be clear.”
Two days later, on October 1st, a series of news came out from Huaxia, shocking the whole world.
First of all, Geely and BYD, Great Wall announced the merger to form a new company, East Asia Automobile Group.
After the reorganization, the annual production capacity of East Asia Automobile Group will reach an astonishing 10 million vehicles, covering the nine major brands of Geely, Lynk & Co, Volvo, BYD, Lingyun, Great Wall, Wey, Lotus, and Proton.
According to the current global ranking, the top three companies are Toyota Group, Volkswagen Group, and Renault Nissan Mitsubishi United Group. The annual production capacity of the three of them is around 12 million vehicles. It is difficult to distinguish However, the fourth-ranked GM Group has an annual production capacity of 8.5 million vehicles, which is still quite far behind the top three.
After the establishment of the East Asia Automobile Group, it will surpass the General Motors Group and become the fourth largest automobile manufacturer in the world.
In the beginning, when Luo Jia led the establishment of the China Automobile Alliance, the total production capacity of Geely, BYD, and Great Wall was only 4 million vehicles. Now it has increased by 2.5 times in less than two years. Great achievement.
However, before the Chinese people had time to celebrate, another news came.
The national team also announced a restructuring plan for the auto industry. Changan, Chery, GAC, SAIC, Southeast, Haima, Jianghuai, Zotye, Dongfeng, FAW, and BAIC will formally merge to form a new auto group, Huaxia Automobile.
The production capacity of Huaxia Automobile Group has reached 7 million vehicles, ranking seventh in the world after GM Group and Hyundai-Kia Group, and higher than the production capacity of 6.5 million vehicles of the eighth-ranked Ford Group.
Many people who eat melons don’t understand why after the combination of the national team, the production capacity is only 7 million vehicles, which is not even as high as the production capacity of the three major private car groups? This is impossible, right?
However, the fact is just so cruel. FAW Toyota, FAW Audi, FAW Volkswagen, these are indeed large automobile factories, but they are all joint venture brands. When you buy a domestically produced Audi a6, you can’t tell others , I bought a FAW myself, right?
The real China No. 1 Automobile is just a small car factory, and its annual sales are only 200,000 vehicles, which is still a fraction of that of FAW-Volkswagen.
For another example, Wuling Group, the sacred car Wuling Light, is well-known by the masses~Soverse.com~But Wuling is a joint venture brand between SAIC and GM, and it is not a real domestic product.
Currently, the largest automaker in the hands of the national team is Changan, with an annual production capacity of 2 million vehicles.
The military has always had a backbone. Changan Automobile belongs to the General Armament Department of the military. Although they have also established joint ventures such as Changan Mazda and Changan Suzuki, they have never given up on the development of their own brands. Otherwise, the strength of the national team will It will be even uglier.
Followed by Dongfeng, 1 million vehicles, while Chery, BAIC, JAC, SAIC, and GAC all have a production capacity of around 500,000 vehicles.
In short, the national team put together the cards in their hands, and finally gathered a production capacity of 7 million vehicles. Although it is a bit pitiful, it at least has the qualifications to enter the game.
In addition, Sinotruk took the lead, joined Jiefang, Yutong, Jinlong, Jiangling, Foton, etc., and established the Huaxia Commercial Vehicle Group. This group mainly manufactures heavy trucks and commercial buses, with an annual production capacity of 3 million vehicles.
In any case, under the continuous lobbying and hard work of Star Technology, China’s large and small automobile manufacturers finally united to form the East Asia, Huaxia, Commercial, and the three major automobile groups. According to the global annual production capacity of 100 million automobiles Calculated by vehicles, China’s three major manufacturers accounted for one-fifth of them.
