2014, an Icebreaking Year for New Energy Automobiles?

Continuous haze in China has prompted more people to seek a healthy, eco-friendly mode of transport. New energy automobiles, which have been under development in China for more than a decade have recently come to the center of public attention since being proposed by members of the CPPC in March.

The Chinese government has scaled up its subsidies for new energy vehicles. Beijing and Shanghai are also taking measures to abolish local protectionism. The new energy automobile market witnessed a sharp increase of more than a third in 2013.

As one of the seven car models included in Beijing’s New Energy Vehicle Catalogue, BMW’s newly-developed all-electric sedan, the Zinoro 1E, made its debut in Sanlitun Soho in Beijing in mid-February.

Wu Haifeng, the manager of Zinoro’s Beijing showroom explained that the Zinoro is offering an innovative rent-only mode of operation, ranging from one-day rent to three-year rent.

Wu stated that many prospective buyers are taking a ‘let’s wait-and-see’ attitude towards the emerging sector. Rental cars can offset their concerns, and they can rent for just one day to experience and decide whether the electric car meets their needs.

To save consumers’ time and energy, Zinoro also offers an all-inclusive service, namely a one-off rental fee covering license plates, insurance, and after-sales services including maintenance and repair.
