Parallel imported cars were resisted by multinational car companies to implement resource control in China
BMW recently increased the engine displacement of the X5 and X6 3.0L models sold in the U.S. market by 25ml to 3004ml. This small change increased the tariff cost of entering China by 110000 yuan, resulting in the price advantage of parallel imported cars being wiped out. At the regular information meeting of the Asian city, Yan Jinghui, deputy general manager of the Asian city, gave a typical example to illustrate the current status of the promotion of parallel imported vehicles in China
that is, on the basis of different fixtures, although the State Administration for Industry and Commerce stipulated that the filing of general automobile dealers and authorized automobile brand dealers should be stopped from October 1 last year, which provided policy support for parallel imported car dealers to carry out business activities in a compliant and fair manner, it is easy to liberalize policies and difficult to promote them in practice. The above BMW "trick" is a best example. Yan Jinghui revealed that there is a direct relationship between the tearing expansion speed and the stretching speed of the gripper. From the current situation, luxury car companies represented by BMW and Mercedes Benz are using the excuse of regulating the global regional market to investigate high-end luxury cars exported to China without authorization, punish dealers at the source, and implement resource control over the export of parallel imported cars to China. Mercedes Benz has made it clear that American dealers who export so-called "parallel cars" to China will be punished, which has become an obstacle to the promotion of parallel imported cars in China
the reason why multinational car companies "wantonly suppress and kill" parallel imported cars is closely related to their interests in China. As we all know, the price of the same imported car in China is probably two to three times higher than that of foreign cars. Although various taxes and fees are included, the average price of imported cars increases by about 60%. However, at present, imported cars are often 100% - 150% higher than the original price. Obviously, it is not just a tax problem. The remaining part should be the price increase of manufacturers and dealers
in fact, parallel imported cars with great price advantages are a supplement to imported cars. Associated industrial consumption impact testing machines are divided into manual pendulum impact testing machine, semi-automatic impact testing machine, digital display impact testing machine, microcomputer controlled impact testing machine, non-metallic impact testing machine, etc. for imported cars of medium specification version, the price of imported cars of American specification version and Middle East version is 20% to 30% lower. In addition, this is a standard practice. The shape of non Chinese standard imported cars is quite different from that of Chinese standard cars, which caters to the needs of some consumers to pursue personality, so they are sought after by consumers. With the promotion of national policies, the problems of difficult licensing, no after-sales service and non-standard operation of parallel imported vehicles are gradually being solved
at present, the after-sales service of parallel imported vehicles in Beijing Asian city and Shanghai free trade zone has been solved by insurance companies. The China Automobile Circulation Association is also reviewing and approving service standards such as after-sales service process, quality management and parts supply of parallel imported vehicles. In the long run, the liberalization trend of parallel import vehicles has been unstoppable. The key lies in the promotion of national policies, the strengthening of the implementation and speed of parallel import policies, and the normalization of antitrust are all effective means to check and balance foreign enterprises' resistance to parallel imports. Once the relevant policies are introduced, the resistance of multinational car enterprises will become the "end of the crossbow"
