China always has own its answer or alternative to anything that the world can manufacture. None of us ever expected that new Chinese kid, COMAC, in the aviation playground would be an imminent threat to Boeing or Airbus in the coming years with its C919. Likewise, it would not be surprising to see the rising Xiaomi posing a big threat to Apple in the coming years with its cutting edge innovation, at least in the domestic market. Recently China has shown its interest to invest in the manufacture of green cars. While it would be unfair to compare the domestic green cars to Tesla for now, it would, on the other hand be very good to have a look on what Chinese green cars are all about and the potential they have.
