There are additional speaking tasks included, as well as a quiz and review section with a bonus activity.
China’s fast-growing electric vehicle market is the largest in the world. After a slump earlier this year, the sale of electric cars nationwide is gaining speed again. Chinese carmaker Wuling has overtaken Tesla as the top-selling electric vehicle in China. The brand is a joint venture with General Motors to target young consumers and less affluent drivers.
