According to the Wall Street Journal, Chinese car sales are now decreasing because of the way they copycat and the people not wanting them. Whereas foreign car firms are getting more sales growth in the Chinese market than the Chinese firms are doing.
The People's Republic of China has the largest car industry in the world with approx. 18 million vehicles being built in 2010. Until 2005, the American car industry (Ford, Chrysler and GM) was the largest before being beaten by the Japanese in 2006 and the Chinese in 2009.
By the Great Depression, America produced 90% of the world's cars (such as Ford Model T). But today, American is now the 3rd largest car producer.
Both the Americans and Japanese have never copied any car, unlike the Chinese. However the North Koreans are the worst. Their car manufacturer Sungri has produced a copycat of a Mercedes E-Class that is difficult to handle, since you can't close the doors properly. The car is called Sungri Paedukstan .
