China's Ambassador to the U.S. warned against cutting the superpower out of the EV supply chain under the Inflation Reduction Act mandating domestic production (or certain trading partners) to get valuable tax credits.

Electric cars from American companies now depend on globalized supply and production, and the U.S. wants that to become localized supply and production.

The Chinese ambassador says cutting China off will end up cutting the U.S. out of the Chinese car market, and vice versa. American carmakers like GM, Ford and Tesla could lose access to the biggest auto market in the world.

It ooks like China isn’t really interested in selling its EVs in the U.S.; it’s mostly interested in keeping a lucrative role supplying the majority of EVs sold in the U.S. or anywhere else.

Since the US, other than Tesla and Buick, is already pretty much out of the Chinese car market I have no problems with this. Not being dependent on China for critical infrastructure, which is what EV batteries will become, far outweighs the loss of jobs, many of which are in China anyway.
