The purpose of this research is to examine the trade influencing factors and trade potential of China's new energy vehicles in "Belt and Road" countries. We adopt the gravity model and focus on the impact of carbon emissions. Our results show that: (1) carbon emission level, GDP, and distance are the most important factors affecting trade; (2) China's new energy vehicles have high trade potential in "Belt and Road" countries; (3) carbon emission trading can promote the export of new energy vehicles.
