Electrified vehicles produced by Chinese startups scored highest in performance, execution, layout and appeal among new-energy vehicles in China this year, J.D. Power said in a new report released this week.
The annual study measure how much new-vehicle owners like or dislike virtually every aspect of their vehicles by tracking design, performance, safety, usability, comfort, perceived quality, and other factors. J.D. Power said 45 vehicle attributes were rated this year, with higher scores on a scale of 1,000 more ideal.
International auto manufacturers improved the most in the study, while most traditional Chinese automakers ranked among the lowest, the market research company noted.
The study shows the average score of NEVs in China is 739 on a 1,000-point scale this year, up four points from 2021.
Among NEVs, those produced by international auto manufacturers score 744, on average, a jump of ten points from 2021.
