Six private OEMs step up introduction of HEV/EV passenger cars in 2012
In China, the government has rapidly been enhancing and preparing the dissemination and expansion of the new energy vehicle business as part of China's national strategy in recent years. The Chinese government is scheduled to announce plans for the development of a new energy vehicle industry soon.
In the draft, China aims to be the largest seller of new energy vehicles in the world in 2020. Specifically, it targets ownership of 5 million new energy vehicles (PHEV, EV, FCV, etc.) by 2020. In addition, it aims to produce and sell 15 million energy-efficient vehicles such as HEV (including fuel-efficient gasoline vehicles) a year, aiming to be the world leader.
In order to achieve the target, the Chinese government will contribute a total of 100 billion RMB during the next ten years until 2020 for the development of related industries. It is said to be intending to mainly promote the development of EVs, aggressively.
