Stronger push for ‘green’ cars

Stronger push for ‘green’ cars

Buyers of cleaner and more efficient cars in Beijing can receive a maximum subsidy of 57,000 yuan from the central government as it targets 200,000 clean energy vehicles on the road by the end of 2017.

Beijing will offer 20,000 license plates for fully-electric cars through a lottery system in 2014 according to a clean air action plan released in late 2013. The transport authority said it will increase the quota to 30,000 in 2015 and double it to 60,000 in 2016 and 2017. In addition to the ease of licensing, both the central and local governments are offering generous subsidies to buyers of clean-energy models.

Despite the incentives, many are reluctant to buy a green-energy model, with their biggest concern the travel range. China News Service reported that there were about 70 charging stations in Beijing by the end of 2013, most of them serving buses, taxis and other public vehicles. The Beijing government announced it will build 1,000 charging stalls in 2014 with its long-term target to have stations within five kilometers of any locale in the city.
