At the meeting, Tian Yulong, spokesperson and chief engineer of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, said that everyone is generally concerned about the exemption of purchase tax, and the State Council attaches great importance to it. tax deferrals. At present, the relevant departments of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology are stepping up research and releasing relevant results as soon as possible.
Tian Yulong said that in June, the production and sales of new energy vehicles were 590,000 and 596,000 respectively, an increase of 1.3 times year-on-year. Overall, in the first half of the year, the production and sales of new energy vehicles reached 2.661 million and 2.6 million respectively, an increase of 1.2 times year-on-year. From the perspective of the entire production and sales scale, it was a record high, with a market penetration rate of 21.6%.
Tian Yulong said that technological innovation has made some new breakthroughs. The newly developed lidar, domestic chips, and vehicle-based basic computing platforms have all been applied in vehicles, and the level of technological innovation has been continuously improved. New breakthroughs have also been made in energy batteries. The energy density of mass-produced ternary batteries has reached the world’s highest 300 Wh/kg, and cobalt-free batteries has reached 240 Wh/kg. These indicators are very eye-catching. . Semi-solid batteries are close to mass production, and our industrial competitiveness in new energy vehicle power batteries is very strong.
Tian Yulong also said that in general, my country’s new energy vehicles have entered a stage of large-scale and rapid development, and stabilizing and expanding the consumption of new energy vehicles is an important way to ensure the stable development of the automobile industry, which is also an important work measure in our future. In accordance with the decisions and arrangements of the Party Central Committee and the State Council, we will work with relevant departments to further expand the scale of promotion of new energy vehicles, promote automobile consumption, and make positive contributions to stabilizing the overall economic market.
Mainly in several aspects: First, continue to improve the quality of product supply. Continuously improve the safety technical standards of new energy vehicles, and the performance levels related to power batteries, including runaway alarms, safety protection, low temperature adaptability and other performance levels, so that consumers can buy and use with confidence. At the same time, it is necessary to accelerate the integration and development of electrification and intelligent network technology, develop more service functions that suit the needs of consumers, and continue to improve the driving experience and modernity. On the other hand, actively creating a good environment for use, strengthening industry monitoring, and ensuring the supply and price of automotive chips and upstream raw materials will have a relatively large impact on the automotive industry. Do a good job in ensuring supply and price, and make every effort to ensure the stability and smoothness of the industrial chain and supply chain. Implement the requirements of the State Council to steadily increase the consumption of automobiles and other bulk consumption, and encourage the qualified localities and regions to introduce high-quality consumption promotion policies. Make concerted efforts, make efforts from top to bottom, do a good job in a new round of new energy vehicles going to the countryside, organize the implementation of urban pilot projects for comprehensive electrification of public facilities, speed up the construction of charging and swapping facilities, and promote the realization of information sharing, unified settlement and other convenient measures, so that new energy Automobile consumption, safe driving and the steady development of the entire industry are coordinated.
On July 7, 17 departments including the Ministry of Commerce issued the “Notice on Several Measures to Revitalize Automobile Circulation and Expand Automobile Consumption”. The “Notice” shows that the relevant departments support the consumption of new energy vehicles, and are studying the issue of the extension of the new energy vehicle purchase tax exemption after the expiration of the policy.
IT House learned that in April last year, the Ministry of Finance and other three ministries officially issued a policy announcement on the exemption of purchase tax for new energy vehicles. From January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2022, the purchase of new energy vehicles Exemption from vehicle purchase tax. New energy vehicles exempt from vehicle purchase tax refer to pure electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid (including extended-range) vehicles, and fuel cell vehicles.
