No vehicles entirely or partly made in China should be allowed to be sold in the US!!!! We don't need more American workers to lose their jobs to unfair Chinese competition that can sell for less money because they treat workers in China like slaves and don't have to pay them much. Buy American!! If you must buy foreign, buy made in Japan or Europe. At least the Japanese and Europeans make some of their cars here in the US. But make it clear to them that we will not buy cars made partly or entirely in China. Let's boycott China-made products when possible. We don't need China's crappy drywall or toys and we don't need food products form China making kids or pets sick!!!!!!!!

Chinese made BYD electric cars are hitting U.S. streets this Fall. Looks like you'll be sulking and fuming...on the way to an early grave.

Actually, dozens of models of electric cars are available in the US already, but they are not licensed for use as they do not meet requirements for highway driving.

So your "Xinhua" propaganda piece where you read about that merely puts Chinese Communist Party propaganda spin on a rather lame story about some discount Chinese manufacturer attempting to enter an already crowded market and having no means to distribute----but that is the truth, so you will never find it in "Xinhua" where the propagandists will claim it is "A testament to CCP greatness, unique technology, and that it will soon take over the US market".

Read actual news, not CCP propaganda crap meant to swindle the Chinese people, and you will not look so appallingly stupid, "RayHole"!

We want the same but why the hell nobody is taxing these imports to match the local goods?
The rich people have a deal with the 'devil'.
I am an european and i recently realized that even the 'radio-flyer'(the classic red wagon) is made in ...china.
Also Timberland shoes made in china are flooding europe.
Made in china, priced like in usa. Why pay so much for a chinese 'under-licence' good?

Because of WTO trade rules. The EU represents all its members and must have signed WTO trade agreements with China allowing equal treatments in tax on both sides. Unless you find out that the other side is dumping products selling them below cost, you cannot tax more than what is already agreed upon.
