China set to oppose Biden administration’s electric vehicle strategies at the World Trade Organization

In response to the new U.S. rule that excludes Chinese products from electric vehicle subsidies, China has filed a complaint against the U.S. with the World Trade Organization (WTO). The Chinese Commerce Ministry criticized the discriminatory subsidy policies for new energy vehicles under President Joe Biden’s 2022 Inflation Reduction Act, stating that these policies distorted fair competition and disrupted the global supply chain for new energy vehicles.

The impact of the case is uncertain as the functioning of the WTO’s Appellate Body has been blocked since late 2019 by the U.S. The European Union has also launched its own investigation into Chinese subsidies for electric vehicles, concerned about potential threats to its auto industry. With the new U.S. rule, only 13 out of over 50 electric vehicles on sale in the U.S. are eligible for tax credits, a decrease from about two dozen models in 2023. Automakers are working to source parts that would make their models eligible for the credits.
