Is it fair that auto prices in China are much higher?
Yeas ago, I was told VW’s Jetta in overseas market is almost identical to the Bora in China. And I confirmed it myself last year in America. It’s almost a humiliating fact which drove me furious about so-called state-owned auto factories manufacturing VW series.
I don’t personally own a car as talking about the issue here. It’s not I don’t economically afford one. I just support a boycott to those foreign brands manufactured locally. These brands, partnered with big state-owned auto manufactures, spend every effort to monopolize the market and fool the buyers with crazily high price. If it were not the advent of local brands like Cherry and others, you still buy a 70’s-level car at US$20,000.
Besides the unsatisfaction with the prices, I also support traffic which’s more efficient and greener, say metro and bus. But as I’m getting old, the tempation becomes harder to resist. Maybe in two years, I will bend to the stupid market and drive a VW or Honda or Toyato.
