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.
