Ford Motors' Dave Schoch is counting on it. "So you've got 30 million customers out there, all with different tastes and different affordability levels. And what Ford wants to do is bring the power and leverage of our global line-up, you know from small to medium to large, into China," Schoch said.
福特的萧达伟正在打这个主意,“我们在这里已有3000万客户,他们的品味各异,购买力也各不同。福特要做的就是将全球生产线的动力和影响力从小市场转移到中型市场,然后到中国这样的大市场。”

But the competition is fierce.

"We are increasing our local content here in this country. And next month we are opening the first engine plant with the capacity of 250,000 units outside of Germany for Mercedes engines," said Daimler AG Chairman, Dieter Zetsche.
“我们正在提高自己的本地化程度,下个月我们成立德国之外首个拥有25万单位产量梅塞德斯引擎的引擎工厂。”

The Chinese see cars as a potent symbol of success. Autoforesight analyst Yale Zhang says the rising demand for premium and luxury automobiles reflects China's emergence as an economic superpower.
中国人视汽车为彰显成功的重要标志,Autoforesight公司分析家Yale Zhang说,中国人对高端豪华汽车需求的上升反映中国已成为经济强国。

“中国汽车市场越来越像欧洲或美国的奔驰C级或宝马3系列入门级高端市场,这种入门级的高端市场发展很快。”
