 Foreign media: Sino US trade sees red light again, Fords imports of cars stranded in Chinese ports


Axios news network report screenshot In May 9th, the Reuters quoted 3 people as a vehicle for the import of Ford vehicles in the Chinese market, saying that informal delays were being held in Chinese ports at the Chinese customs. These car brands include Ford and Fords luxury car brand Lincoln. The reason is that a senior official in Ford motor, who does not want to be named, revealed that China Customs is conducting additional checks on the vehicle emission system. Another source said that in the past two weeks, BMW and Mercedes Benz (Dalem) cars produced by the United States also encountered similar cover situations. Since September 2015, Volkswagen has been exposed to some diesel vehicles in the United States to install and discharge cheating software, the tail gas door scandal of the American German car has been continuously fermented and has already spread to many cars. Agence France-Presse 8 news that Audi Volkswagen Group to reduce costs, reducing the new A6 vehicle diesel engine exhaust treatment fluid (vehicle urea). This will mean that the vehicle will emit more polluting gases. At present, the new Audi A6 has stopped production.

But Ford, who felt that he was lying on the gun, began to give reasons for this blocked entry. A Ford executive said, Sino US trade friction is definitely the reason behind it, but no one is willing to admit it. A spokesman for Ford Shanghai said in an interview with Reuters that the situation of the port is being closely monitored. Although the spokesman declined to give details, she said that the import of Ford cars usually entered the Chinese market from two ports in Shanghai and Tianjin. On the other hand, a spokesman for BMW and Dalem declined to comment on the obstruction of entry. The two sides also said, we will pay close attention to the Sino US trade negotiations. In May 3rd, the US trade delegation visited China from a vision of China. This is verifying in American car companies. Before trade friction started, China had long been the hope of the United States that the car market is shrinking. But when the Sino US trade war started, American car dealers clamped in the seam and could not move. General motors, for example, failed to achieve the promise of increasing employment for Trump, and almost lost the Chinese market due to the tariff provocation of the United States. In the third quarter of last year, GM showed that China has been the largest market in the world for many years, and the third quarter of China accounted for 42.38% of the total group sales, with a growth of 12.3%. But this year, the number of GM imports from North America to China is only about 150. It is not yet clear whether GMs imports from the United States to China are delayed by the customs. But the protagonist of the event, Ford Motor Co, is facing the greatest risk. All Lincoln cars currently sold in the Chinese market by Ford are imported from North America. Last year, the brand sold 54124 cars in China, an increase of 66% in 2016. China is also the largest auto market in the world. Car manufacturers can support 60 days by stock, which is not likely to cause disconnection for a few days, said Zhao Yingzhi, director of advisory body IHSMarkits Asia Pacific Advisory Department, but the prolonged delay may have a big impact.
