Universities and Government agencies play important role in Firm’s R&D activities. Central and local governments are making tremendous investments in New Energy Vehicle industry in China. This paper examines the direct and indirect role of government and its policies to influence the innovation process of new electric vehicle industry. Specifically, the paper aims to examine university-industry collaboration and interaction of the government. We analyze the current model and the government policy of new energy vehicle industry and propose our new model based on our findings for government interaction to foster the new energy vehicle advancement in China. The methodology utilizes in-depth interviews with new energy vehicle manufacturers and local and regional government agencies throughout China. The results show that indirect role of government is more effective than direct influence in the industry, and specifically, in China, new energy vehicle manufacturers should follow the coupled process of innovation to achieve better results.
