China Wants High-Tech Cars. German Automakers Are Eager to Help.

A series of deals announced over the last week is designed to help German car manufacturers take a bigger slice of the world’s largest automobile market — and China develop its vision for the future of cars.

Beijing has been vocal about its desires for electric and driverless cars. It is introducing aggressive rules to ensure that many of the new cars put on its roads have electric or hybrid engines. And autonomous vehicles are a key part of its Made in China 2025 plan to dominate important new technologies.

To aid that effort, it has promised to open up its auto industry to foreign carmakers, a move that it has now doubled down on.

The flurry of announcements from German companies shows that they are keen to take advantage of the situation. Among the new partnerships are these:

■ Volkswagen plans to develop electric vehicles under its SEAT brand, as part of an agreement with the Anhui Jianghuai Automobile Group. It will also work with the FAW Group and the China Intelligent and Connected Vehicles Research Institute to develop autonomous cars.

■ BMW intends to increase the number of cars it produces annually at its two factories in China, which includes building electric Mini vehicles there in partnership with Great Wall Motor. It will also form a partnership with the Chinese technology company Baidu on autonomous cars.

■ Continental plans to work with Didi Chuxing, the Chinese ride-sharing company, to develop internet-connected electric vehicles.

■ Daimler will receive a license to test its driverless vehicles on Beijing’s roads, the first such permit issued to a foreign carmaker.

■ Bosch will work with NIO, the Chinese electric vehicle start-up, to build sensors and control systems for electric cars.

All this deal making makes sense for both sides.

German automakers hope that by increasing production in China they can also increase sales in that country, the world’s largest car market. (For BMW and Daimler, the production could replace cars they currently make in the United States for export to China, which are caught up in the escalating tariff battle between the countries.)

And China hopes this represents an opportunity to become an innovation hub for electric-and autonomous-car development, advancing its goal of becoming a technological powerhouse.

Against this backdrop, Tesla announced Tuesday that it would build a factory in Shanghai — its first outside the United States, and the first in China to be wholly owned by a foreign automaker. Tesla says the plant will eventually be able to produce 500,000 vehicles a year.

These developments are likely to displease President Trump. His administration’s trade war with China is focused in part on keeping technology out of Beijing’s hands.

But right now, much of the high-tech auto industry appears to be moving away from Mr. Trump, and toward China.
