China: Analysis: Chinese electric taxis struggle to win mass appeal

(Reuters) – A pioneering electric taxi project in China’s southern economic powerhouse of Shenzhen seems a success by most accounts. Riders are enthusiastic, there have been no accidents and drivers are termed “gracious,” not a term usually applied to mainland drivers.

The pilot project, which could be replicated in other cities, underpins China’s ambitious plans to put at least half a million electric vehicles (EV) and plug-in hybrids on the road by 2015.

The country is already the world’s biggest emitter of greenhouse gases from burning fossil fuels and other human activities that scientists say are causing global warming.

As the world’s largest and fastest-growing auto market, China’s carbon footprint can only grow.
