The EU Commission's imposition of provisional tariffs on Chinese electric cars has sent waves through the automotive industry, particularly affecting German giants like VW, BMW, and Mercedes. While the EU aims to reduce dependency on China, German manufacturers fear harm to their domestic market.

Consultants warn of negative consequences, urging German automakers to focus on innovation. The struggle over tariffs has provoked reactions from the US and China, with doubts cast on their effectiveness.

As the Chinese government contemplates a WTO complaint, the EU seeks a balanced approach to safeguard its automotive sector without hindering trade. Despite criticisms of insufficient protection for European industries, the EU rejects Chinese accusations of trade law violations while facing potential retaliatory measures from China.
