China: Ministries promote hybrid buses in all cities

The use of hybrid buses, including plug-in hybrid electric buses, will be promoted in all Chinese cities as the central government plans subsidies to companies and institutions that buy them.

The announcement came in a joint statement from the Ministry of Finance and three others.

In January 2009, the four ministries launched a promotion of energy-saving and new energy buses. Twenty-five cities took part, but many of them didn’t achieve the aim of changing to the new buses.

The government will select hybrid-bus brands through a bidding procedure, as it seeks vehicles that can save energy and reduce emissions while providing a stable performance, according to the statement.

The successful bidders will sell their products in cities except the 25 pilot ones. The central government will give the buyers of hybrid buses one-time subsidies.
