Greener vehicles shine at Beijing auto show

BEIJING, April 21 (Xinhua) — New energy vehicles stole the limelight at the Beijing auto show on Sunday, as many cities in the world’s largest auto market try to combat air pollution and traffic congestion.

Seventy-nine new-energy vehicles are on exhibition at the 2014 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition, according to the secretariat of the event.

The new-energy vehicles are from both foreign and domestic car manufacturers, including a hybrid SUV from China’s automaker BYD, a hybrid car from Sweden’s Volvo as well as four battery-powered and hybrid vehicles from China’s First Automotive Works (FAW) Group.

The show which is open to the public from Monday features more than 1,130 vehicles, with 118 debuting. A one-day media preview was on Sunday.

With smoggy weather lingering in some Chinese cities and rising fuel costs, BYD will roll out more high-efficient and user-friendly new-energy vehicles in the coming years, said Wang Chuanfu, BYD chairman and founder.
