“Cutting-edge Technology” refers to a forward-looking, pioneering, and exploratory technology that has a high potential to be an important fundamental technology in the future NEV product development and the industry’s transformation and upgrading. Cutting-edge technologies must be in the fundamental research stage and are expected to achieve industrial applications within 5-10 years.
“Innovative Technology” refers to a novel technology that has existing application(s) solving technical difficulties and bottlenecks in the key areas of NEVs. Innovative technologies must already have industrial application(s) with product(s) in volume production.
The selection of the “Global NEVs Cutting-edge and Innovative Technologies” is planned to be held once a year.
