La UE eleva sus aranceles para VEs de China

By Duncan Mil

June 25, 2024 - La Unión Europea planea introducir aranceles adicionales de 17% a 38% a las importaciones de vehículos eléctricos (VEs) procedentes de China. Las nuevas tarifas se sumarán al arancel estándar de la UE de 10% a los autos importados.

China’s Premier Li Qiang hit back at accusations from the U.S., Canada, and EU that Chinese firms benefit from unfair subsidies and claims that Beijing dumps cheap goods into the world economy.

“China’s production of advanced electric vehicles, lithium-ion batteries and photovoltaic products, etcetera, first met our domestic demand, but also enrich global supply,” Li said in opening remarks at a World Economic Forum meeting in Dalian, northeastern China, on Tuesday.

The remarks come as Canada moved to clamp down on imports of Chinese-made EVs, aligning itself with the Biden administration on trade.

Last month, the White House unveiled plans to nearly quadruple U.S. tariffs on Chinese-manufactured EVs, up to a final rate of 102.5%. At the same time, the European Union also plans to increase tariffs, taking those levies up to 38.1% on Chinese manufacturers such as BYD, Geely, and SAIC, as well as Chinese-built Tesla and BMW cars.

China is Canada’s second-largest trading partner, following the United States.
