fitch | EU Tariffs on Chinese EVs Will Not Affect Market, Potential Retaliation is Key (14.06.24)
We think any additional tariffs on European vehicles [ex]ported to China are mostly likely to be absorbed by automakers. We believe that joint-ventures (JVs) of German automakers and local manufacturers that sell vehicles in China may also be affected. China accounts for 20%-30% of German automakers' sales through JVs (increasing the overall sales exposure of German automakers to China to 30%-40%).
