World, As Seen from the most beautiful islands: Ireland and Cyprus

China wants to drive more electric cars


China is speeding up with the ‘greening’ of its enormous fleet. In 2020, a quarter of the new cars must be fully electric, or a hybrid car with or without a plug. That the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology announced in new plans.

A few years ago, that target for 2020 was still at 20 percent, against a current sales percentage of around 5 percent. With the move, the Chinese government wants to combat pollution, but also dependence on oil from abroad.

The plans also give the somewhat slowing Chinese car industry a boost. A provisional proposal also stated that in 2035 about 60 percent of the fleet had to be “electrified”, but that figure was missing in the final version.
