China is by far the world’s largest electric mobility market, accounting for around half of global sales of electric vehicles.
Besides global technology leadership, the goal of China’s state government was to have at least five million so-called “NEVs – New Energy Vehicles” on China’s roads by the end of 2020. With NEVs, the Chinese government not only refers to purely battery electric vehicles (BEV) and plug-in hybrids electric vehicles (PHEV), but also to fuel cell vehicles as well as particularly economical vehicles without electric drive.
The latest factsheet from NOW provides an overview of the measures taken to date to activate and stimulate the market, as well as the number of vehicles and charging points for BEVs (Battery Electric Vehicles) and plug-in hybrids. It is based on results of the monitoring in the Sino-German Electro Mobility Innovation and Support Center on behalf of the BMVI.
