As China attempts to grapple with its rampant air pollution, the national government and municipal authorities are taking increasingly aggressive measures to encourage adoption of plug-in electric cars.

Officials recently announced the details of a previously-discussed new round of electric-car incentives, while the city of Shenzhen has joined several other Chinese cities in capping new-vehicle registrations.

China’s current incentives scheme expires in 2015, but a new program will replace it and carry through to 2020, according to Reuters.
