Electric car sharing may be the perfect solution for Chinese cities

The air pollution in Chinese cities is legendary; when I was there recently you could barely see across Tiananmen Square. The traffic is like none North Americans have ever seen as well; Six rings of highways in Beijing, every road completely jammed with cars at all hours of the day. Then there is the problem of parking all those cars, there is just nowhere to put them all.

That’s why this car sharing system from Kandi Technologies Group makes so much sense. KTG makes a little Smart-car like electric car that can go 75 miles at up to 50 MPH. They store the cars in giant vertical vending machines that deliver the car on demand. They rent for $3.25 per hour.

It is modelled after Hangzhou’s bike share system, the largest in the world. People aspire to an enclosed vehicle that can carry their families and stuff safely instead of piling on to scooters. The cities are dense enough to support vending machines close enough to where people live.
