    Made in china is synonymous with quality and long lasting.

    I suppose I have to do the obligatory post asking you where your phone/tablet was built.

    We can do better than that.

    Nonsense. It’s like Trump has hacked your account.

    Better have a bucket of salt ready for this one.

    Could be like EEStor all over again. There have been loads of such breakthroughs the past 15 years but none made to market and the best you can get at the minute is the garden variety 2.7-3V EDLC

    I can then add the response that phone/tablets do not have to pass a severe crumple test, and they have your life in their hands if you crash one.


    Will never buy a made in china car. Whatever about a rebrand like Volvo or a made in China tesla (although I dont want that either and will avoid like the plague)... an actual chinese designed and built car? Not a hope even if they paid me.

    If they are selling cars into Europe then they’ll have NCAP ratings. Manufacturers make abs sell what the market allows.


    The model 3 MIC has good NCAP

    The XPENG sold in Norway would be a good comparasion

    Volvo are owned by a Chinese company. I.e. they’re not just building them there, a Chinese company is pulling the strings in terms of development, production, design etc,

    The Chinese (might as well generalise 1.4 billion people :) ) are well capable of building anything to any standard, they give the people what they want.
    People want quality EVs, and from my limited knowledge of EVs I can see that China has a huge uptake of EV and experience of building them (possibly badly)

    American cars didn’t have a great rep for a long time either. No reason why an upstart company can’t start making cars that people want, see Tesla :)

    See Isuzu D-Max NCAP on older easier test.

    The Great Wall Steed is rubbish by our standards, but this is a budget version of a budget model for African market that doesn’t even have airbags.
