Domestic automakers outperformed foreign rivals in terms of market share in 2009. As thechart shows, home-made cars occupied 33% of the domestic market share in 2009, up from 25%in 2008. But the market share of Japanese vehicles dropped t0 25% from 2008s 35%.Americas share of the market remained constant at 12%.
There are a number of factors behind this change. The most important one is the rapiddevelopment of Chinese auto.industry,which now tums out cars reaching or approachingintemational standard in reliability and fuel efficiency. Affordability also contributes to thepopularity of domestic brand cars,which usually cost only one third or even onefifth of whatimported automobiles do. On the other hand, the recent spate of recall scandals of Japanese carsscared away their potential buyers in China. Besides,Japans right-wing views on its barbaric（野蛮的，肆无忌惮的）invasion of China led many young Clunese to Japanese cars.
Despite the lead, Chinese car makers, rather than being smug about the achievement,should redouble efforts in order to compete successfully with such auto giants as GM,Toyota andVolkswagen in the global market.
