Why Beijing roads might soon be full of electric cars: Free license plates

China has a new plan to reduce the chemical haze enveloping its capital city. Officials are working on a plan to give electric car owners in Beijing a 120,000 yuan ($1,9298) purchase subsidy and allow them to get a license plate without going through the city’s onerous monthly lottery, according to state media this week.

Converting more of Beijing’s 20 million residents into electric car users is one of Beijing’s better solutions for cutting down on pollution. And it may be one of the best incentives any government has made to get its citizens to go for electric vehicles. The US offers a $7,500 subsidy, but the US Congressional Budget concluded last year the tax credits, in most cases, don’t offset how much electric cars cost over a lifetime.
