China expert Gordon Chang is lifting the veil on the dark side of the Chinese electric vehicle industry, claiming that it threatens to choke out the U.S automotive industry, will bring with it a whole new data collection apparatus to potentially spy on Americans, and will grow on the back of slave labor.

Chang, the Gatestone Institute senior fellow and author of “The Coming Collapse of China,” spoke to Fox News Digital about what he believes are a whole host of dangers that will come from China’s major splash into the EV market.

The expert’s message comes as Chinese electric vehicle company BYD recently surpassed EV giant Tesla’s production for the second straight year, manufacturing over 3 million vehicles in 2023 compared to Tesla’s 1.84 million.
