China: China’s Electric Car Future Turns to Low-Speed Vehicles

hen China declared in 2010 that it wanted to be the world’s largest producer of, and market for, electric vehicles by 2020, many assumed it meant passenger cars. But producing fully electric passenger cars that meet the necessary safety standards and consumer demands is proving difficult.

So China seems to be focusing on electrification in two other segments to meet that goal: low-speed vehicles and fleets. Gazing into my electric vehicle crystal ball, which is admittedly low-tech, I predict that two sectors will be the dominant electric vehicle segments in China in the future. Electric passenger cars will be an extremely small segment, indeed, nearly nonexistent.
