Electric vehicles (EVs) are heralding a transformative future of decarbonized mobility, and China is leading the charge. Dominating global innovation and production, Chinese automakers now produce over half the world's EVs. New brands like Xiaomi are nearly matching Tesla in autonomy, range, and digital features. Additionally, two Chinese battery makers supply half the world's EV batteries, with China accounting for 75 percent of global production.

Join ITIF in person on Capitol Hill to explore the innovation of Chinese EV and battery producers, the current state of global competition, China's aggressive support tactics, and what the United States needs to do to stay competitive.
