HAMBURG, Germany -- Chinese automakers are taking a second stab at cracking the German market more than a decade and a half after abysmal safety ratings stymied their first attempt.

Manufacturers such as Great Wall Motor, Geely and SAIC Motor have recently launched or are planning to release a slate of electric and hybrid models in Europe's biggest auto market, confident that strong supply chains and improving brand images will help them make inroads in the country.
