Understanding the European Market
For Germany, an increase of 13% is predicted in the pedelec market in 2013.
In this growing market, ExtraEnergy`s aim is to speed up development and to accelerate efforts to improve quality of the LEV (Light Electric Vehicle) segment. Under this aspect, ExtraEnergy regularly invites representatives of the Asian media, the government and LEV manufacturers to get to know how European manufacturers work.
Hannes Neupert (President ExtraEnergy e.V.):“ This is the third trip which we already organized. The aim is to let people from the Chinese government, the media and from the Chinese industry better understand the European market. The Chinese government has great influence on export regulations. As soon as understanding about importance of quality increased, the Chinese government would also enforce this. Finally, this would lead to fairer competition. So, this tour will provide help to make better politics.“
Participants of the tour from 2 to 6 September 2013 were Grace S. Ruan (President & Publisher) Wheel Giant, Joyce and Gorden Hsu (General Manager and Assistant) Sunshine Technology in Taiwan and Shanghai Ying Yu Electronic in China and Zhao Jie (General Manager) of Fujian Menshine New Energy Vehicle Technology Co., LTD.
