China Electric Vehicle Industry Report, 2012
Since 2009, China has staged electric vehicle promotion activities in 25 pilot cities. Seen from the completion of promotion schedule and the utilization of charging stations in major pilot cities in 2011, the market promotion for electric vehicle was still in its infancy in China. In 2011, China only sold 8,000 electric vehicles, accounting for less than 1% of the total global sales volume.
In April 2012, China issued the electric vehicle plan, which stipulated that pure EV would play a key role; the output and sales goal in 2015 is to reach 500,000 and the goal in 2020 is to hit 5 million, which will accelerate the development pace of manufacturers of electric vehicles and related parts.
