Posted by Mike Confino, January 2, 2015


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.
