Beijing Unveiling Aggressive Policies To Speed Electric Vehicle Adoption

Beijing is about to introduce a variety of new policies that should help to speed up the rate of electric vehicle adoption in the city, and help to reduce its dangerous levels of air pollution, according to state media reports.

Among the most significant of these new policies is a £13,000 subsidy for electric vehicles. Another is a complete bypass of the infamous license plate lottery.

“Officials are working on plans to introduce a new maximum purchase subsidy of 120,000 yuan (£12,850) for electric cars, while also allowing electric vehicles to obtain license plates without participating in the city’s plate lottery,” BusinessGreen reports.

A significant expansion of the public charging facility infrastructure is one of the other exciting policies. It’s estimated that about 5,000 new electric vehicles will hit Beijing’s roads this year, including around 3,000 electric buses and taxis.
