The return of the crisis

Prior to the coronavirus crisis of 2019-2020, the global automotive industry was hit hard by the financial crisis of 2008-2009, and General Motors declared its roughly 91 billion U.S. dollar bankruptcy in the wake of the crisis. In 2009, passenger car sales slumped in most markets, with the exception of China, which emerged as the key sales market for passenger cars. In 2020, the car market is in free-fall again. However, China is greatly affected this time. Chinese manufacturers cut the cord from their joint venture partners from other parts of Asia and the Western world a long time ago, and the global automotive industry has begun to feel the impact Chinese motor vehicles and parts manufacturers have.
