Special Newsletter: Meet China-Crunch -- A new platform for faster news, more information
Today, we present to you China-Crunch.com, the latest addition to our offerings.
Before we proceed to what China-Crunch is and what it brings to you, I would like to share some of the background stories with you.
As some of you might know, we have informed our readers about Chinese EVs every day for the past three years, first at CnTechPost, then at CnEVPost, and at blazing-fast speed.
Despite being a small media startup, our reports and the founder Phate Zhang's comments got regular quotations in global media such as SCMP, CleanTechnica, and Benzinga.
Last year we got approached by a few investors and broker representatives with the question if they could receive our news even faster - before it appeared on our website. It was also a time we were seriously thinking about if to continue the site – well, we decided to keep going.
Fast forward to 2022
We teamed up with guys from CarNewsChina, who have been writing for ten years about the Chinese automotive industry, and today we can finally announce that we are starting the implementation of API feed for the famous Bloomberg Terminal!
Crazy, right? And that's not all.
We don't want to lose touch with the community, so after nine months of hard work, we are launching a product for regular readers, consultants and journalists! We call this project China-Crunch.
Marketing speak aside - what is it? It is a website that will offer the following:
Robust Chinese EV sales data
Calendar of all EV-related events in China
Calendar of Chinee EV brands' main events overseas
EV spec database
News before others see it on the free website
Exclusive reports, insights
EV media database licensed for journalists' use.
Moreover, based on the chosen plan, users will receive a daily/weekly newsletter with all the information they shouldn't miss about China EVs.
You know it - there is so much going on in China. We ensure users receive all info prioritized and sorted based on importance and impact. No messy stuff, all digested and filtered for your convenience, 3 minutes read maximum.
It is just the start, and we have many new features in the pipeline for you.
Most importantly, we want to work closely with you - the Chinese EV community. If there is some feature or topic you want to see at China-Crunch (or something you want to see more, or less), let us know! Hello@china-crunch.com is suitable for that.
To be clear, this is not a step to make CnEVPost behind a paywall - it will stay the same as it is and free.
Our goal is to keep the existing free news and leverage more resources from another team to create a brand-new product that brings something extra to those who want to support us.
Also, it would help us to grow, professionalize and ensure we can provide you with all the services on a long-term basis and add many others.
We hope you are as excited as we are and will join us on the journey to unmask and understand the world's biggest EV market.
Enough words; you can check it out here yourself.
One more thing
For CnEVPost readers, I know many of you are more used to reading Chinese, so we have launched a Chinese language site EVPost.cn.
The Chinese site has been running on a trial basis for about 1 month and is now ready to be officially available.
Translated versions of CnEVPost articles can basically be found at EVPost.cn. Moreover, the Chinese site will also share some Chinese analysts' research notes that cannot be covered in English due to our resource constraints.
The Chinese site will be primarily handled by a full-time employee at CnEVPost, while Phate Zhang will continue to focus on the English site.
Our ultimate goal is to have the English and Chinese sites run by more powerful separate teams in order to provide valuable information to a wider audience.
But, obviously, this requires a lot of resources that we don't currently have. The launch of China-Crunch is just the first step towards achieving this goal.
