In 2020, the China car market was the main sales region for luxury global car manufacturers. Some European manufacturers saw their sales in China achieve double-digit growth from 2019. Increasing demand in China drove profits to levels better than expected. This is a trend that is likely here to stay in order to match Chinese demand for both high-end and eco-friendly cars.
Road testing is a key step in the supply chain to bring cars to market in China successfully. Chinese consumers demand style, performance, and reliability from all aspects of new cars, especially from luxury car manufacturers. Therefore, global carmakers need an efficient and thorough testing partner to help launch their vehicles on Chinese roads and succeed with Chinese consumers.
